Bottled, thanks hopsrus!
Cloudy amber, rich airy head. Citric grapefruit aroma. Sweet and malty, sugary and hoppy. Powerful with saccharine sweet and bitter finish.

Everything from the absolutely marvelous colour trough the creative hopping ( not only Cascade, big plus)

22oz bomber from berkeley bowl... Has an aroma like the dank nugs.. no lie..The head is milky white, but small..Light to medium brown color...Really hoppy brew, with excellent citrusy lacing that makes your tastes buds perk up..Nice foaming lacing around the measuring cup we're using. The finish leaves you with a heavy mouthfeel. almost metallically.. very well rounded and good overall.

To be honest, I really think I had a bad bottle of this. It poured a dark cloudy orange with yeast in the glass and a thin white head. The flavor was a bit acidic and the hops made a stale taste in the mouth. I will have to re-rate this when I am provided with a fresher sample.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich copper with a thick white head. Bold assertive hoppy and caramel malty aroma. Body starts sweet and very hoppy with nice balance and a powerfully bitter, semi-dry finish. A little too bitter, but a nice double IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pleasing Copper color, very similar to Lagunitas Kronic, but with a big creamy, off-white head, that dissipates with some excellent lacing. Aroma is resiny, pine hoppy and grapefruit, with a pleasing bite. Flavor is initially sweet, with a big hoppy presence, finishing piney and oh so bitter (Yeah!!) with a warming hint of alcohol. This is a big IPA; not my favorite, but complex and tastey, with a bitter aftertaste that lingers pleasantly. Very nice offering from Moylans!

Huge thanks to Kinz for this one! Pours a copper body with a tall foamy tan head. Nose is generous amounts of hops and citrus fruits. Strong hop taste. Orange peel, grapefruit, lime, etc. along with very light malts. Dominant hops character. Definite hoppy and bitter nouthfeel and finish. Strong bitterness during the finish as well. Pure hops in this one. Recommended for hop heads.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 Fantastic double IPA. Action packed hops! It manages to maintain a nice malt backbone. Even under all the hoppy heft. Hearty and dignified. Try this one.
