COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Moylander Double IPA is fat and resiny, with aggressive and excessive hops swinging on an enormous malt backbone like naughty monkeys on a vine. Double malt, double hops - do the math, it's academic.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Good hazy amber/brown color,Big off white head that lasted for a decent amount of time only to slowly fade to a nice lace.The aroma was Hopped as hell with a nice citrus side and spice mild malt and a definate smell of a forth coming bitter brew.The taste was light malt and citrus with a strong hop presence hint of pine forest and pine-sol,bitter and to some point a little unpleasant.This isn't to bad a brew for a full fledged hop head but for me it's just to much of one thing and not enough of another.It seems a little out of balance,not as good as it could be.Worth trying atleast once but not a brew that could be had in a real volume.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Pretty dark amber with an off-white head. Nice lacing. Very citrusy and piney aroma. Moderately full body. Melted caramel poured atop crunchy grains and dipped in liquid bitterness. Very piney hops becoming puckeringly bitter. Warming alcohol and sweet malts stick around before the big hoppy finish. A pleasant beer to try, but perhaps not the best IIPA ever.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Muddy brown orange with yeast chunks under a hardy creamy small bubbled head. Pine mixed with malts in the aroma. Thick chewy mouthfeel, starts off sweet then gets bitter. Long aftertaste that it bitter and sweet. The malt character really works well with the hops. A good IIPA for those who don't like unbalanced beers.

jgb9348 (5021) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Copper colour, slightly hazy with a thin off-white head which didn't last long. Aroma of strong hops, caramel, slightly spicey with a good malt background. Medium-bodied; Hoppy taste with some tea characteristics. Aftertaste shows the malt and hop bitterness throughout and ends with a bit of coffee. Overall, a decent beer for the style-but as we all know-I don't care for this style! I split this 65 cL bottle with JonR888710, which he purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington and sampled it on 29-November-2003.

OldGrowth (2875) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Bottle: Big foam problem, otherwise... Piney, nutty, spicy,. Hazy orange copper color. Massive foam(does that always happen?). Roasty,burnt carmel,high alcohol flavors. Creamy and big bitterness. Enjoyable despite foam problem.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - NOV 30, 2003
Ruby(darker than copper) color. White, short-lived head. Smells assertively of pine and citrus hops. Taste starts sweet: sugary/honey malt, then bittersweet grapefruit hops, bitter coffee, peach and spice. Aftertaste is a good dry bitter. Really good IPA. Purchased at Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors in Washington, DC.

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 19, 2003
apple cider, grapefruit, hop aromas too numerous to count, very hoppy so far. Gigantic Head, almost a little annoying actually, very large. Pretty much no blanace. Its like eating hop pelets with some sweet back up. Very piney, sticky, resinous, I like being hit over the head with hops but this may be a bit much, feels thin on the middle of my tounge as PsychProf said, but the tip and back are pounded by hops and malt. I would have liked this a lot more if it wasn't set next to a 90 minute

Schroppfy (2360) - Łdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Very frothy head. Super hoppy (pine resin) and very sweet - finishes somewhat cleanly. Nice looking and well-made but not remarkable. Thinnish (but only for the style!).

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2005 Rerate: Again this produced a wonderful creamy head and outstanding lace. The flacores seemed more balanced this time, I quite enjoyed it enough to bump up the score .2

Ratebeer tulip at cellar temp: Hazy deep orange hue with a massive creamy off-white head and very good lace. (be slow on the pour with this beer) The aroma is mighty hoppy with pine, grapefruit, herbs attacking the node with a followup of buttery toast, sugar cookie dough, vanilla, and some alcohol. The strong bitter and piney taste is a big rush. There is some tones of malt but mostly it just a supporting role. The finish is dry and has a ling lingering bitterness and resin taste. This full to medium-bodied brew isnt as balanced as the best of the genre, but its still one mighty fine brew, a hop head delight.
