Mmmm. Itís like eating fresh pineapple while mowing the lawn. Earthy, massive slap of hop and malts. Opened bottle to a sweet smell of hawiian like fruity pineapple and piney vapors! Tastes like Iím surfiní the big malt wave, too. This beer is a definite hula dance of tropical hops! Outstanding!! Shaka!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap (4 oz) @ Le Saint-Bock.
Appearance: Clear golden/copper with a medium off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma: Quite hoppy, but not a stunning combination of hops. Caramel isnít too far behind, along resin, alcohol and fruity notes.
Taste: Caramel forward with moderate to medium sweetness, resin, fruity presence, alochol and medium bitterness.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. A bit of alcohol warmth in the finish. Resinous.
Overall: A decent/good old style DIPA. Not a bad drinkability considering the abv, but those caramel forward DIPA arenít exactly my cup of tea.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
660 ml bomber from Les Vignerons. Dark gold/light amber, percetly clear, with a big, fluffy and persistent off white head. Great lacing. On the nose candied oranges, toffee, citrusy hops notes, a hint of raspberries (or red wild type of fruits). A bit boozy to be honest, but at the same time it feels complex and mouth watering. Resinous bitterness upfront, but then you get smacked with the warming alchool presence, even though for a 9%+ ABV itís relatively well hidden. Typical caramel stickyness, blood oranges, again candied/sugary fruits. Pretty astringent after warming up a little. Soft carbonation, medium to full body, slightly oily texture. Clearly more in the hoppy Barleywine terrritory than a proper DIPA and this could be an old bottle, but still decent.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sour honey nose. Classic IPA colour. Rich and meaty feel on the tongue. Sour finish. Fun IPA but maybe too much lingering sourness for some.

Pours a hazy golden color with a really big head and some lacing on glass. Aroma of citrus and hops with a bit of pine. Taste hops malt pine seems a little dry, bitterness hangs around no real citrus flavor. Overall another good beer from Moylans.
