3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours an attractive copper-orange color with a tan head. Sticky lacing is left behind as the glass is emptied. The aroma is that of strong citrus hops with a good bit of sweet malt thrown in. The hop aroma comes across as "wet" and fresh. Hopsickle supplies a hop explosion in your mouth. It’s not all citrus though. You are hit with pine and bitter notes as well. The finish is bitter with a lingering sweet malt stickiness. At 9.2% ABV the alcohol flavor comes through in the aftertaste. The flavor and mouth feel remind me of what you get from wet hopped beers such as Great Divide Fresh Hop Pale Ale or Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale, though on a much bigger scale. The Moylan’s web site doesn’t offer any clues if the fresh (or wet) hopping is used, although the label mentions "fresh hops."

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep amber with white, denied to semi-sensed, three finger head. Good head retention and perfect lacing. Aroma is mainly resinous and piney with strong citrus accent (orange, grapefruit), in the background hints of tropical fruits. Moderately balanced with some caramel and candy-like notes. Taste is medium to high bitter, rather constant thru the whole of degustation, but slightly intensifies in the end. Medium to full body, sticky and creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is medium bitter and long. In overall nice DIPA, totally focused on rather piney and resinous hops. Nice bitterness. definitely worth trying for beer and hops geeks.
