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.

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.

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

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 isn’t as balanced as the best of the genre, but it’s still one mighty fine brew, a hop head delight.

Poured out of 22 oz. bottle, bought at Liquorama in Upland, CA 10/21/03. Pours to hazy brown-orange color with a tight, frothy head that lingers-- resilient but spotty lacing. Nose of honey, hops and a hint of citrus. Thin body with very strong, very bitter hop flavor that threatens to take over not only your mouth, but also your entire body. Slight tinge of sweet malt, then extremely bitter, shocking hop finish. Long and mean, drying and almost numbing, and a little bit sticky; like drinking a pine cone, but without the intensity of pine flavor. As it mellows, honey, malt, and slight pistachio nuttiness emerge. Good for awhile, but there are better Double IPAs.

a cloudy tobacco-leaf golden carmine color. luxurious lingering head, it's a dazzling display of dough colored lace: from thick curtain to tattered bits-- it's like a time-lapse photograph showing the effacing hand of time on delicate linen. aroma is pure hearts of hop-- with a sinus clearing puissance; firm malts dwell just beneath a mist of alcohol, and have nurtured rich cookie-dough tanned and buttery sweet grains. the flavor bites early and often, leading with convincing bitterness and smooth carbonation, and then dovetailing with cracker jack toasted sweetness, followed by still another reverberation of piney bitterness that drones sweetly in slowly diminishing volumn like a fading lullaby.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Hazy orange, reddish color. OK head and lacing. Smell is very malty and slightly piney. Average head. Taste is sweet and very malty with hop bitterness after the swallow. Big bodied and thick. Very good double IPA.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Slightly hazy orange color. With a small white head and nice lacing. Resinous sweet aroma. Caramel and pine. Sweet and thick up front then some hop flavors come into play. Malt is very big, especially for an IIPA. Bitterness lingers for a bit but not overly long. Body is quite syrupy. Very nice beer.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Dark reddish/amber, excellent head and sheets of lacing. This had a super thick palate - they put plent of sweet malts in this to balance the hop. Hops are strong, but not overpowering, fruity and resiny; leaves a very long lingering bitterness - I liked that a lot. Overall, this is one thick and chewy monster of a beer. Doesn't seem to mix well with other beers in a session. I made sure to try this by itself when I rated it - much better taste experience.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Thick, syrupy, hazy copper w/ no head retention, but decent lacing of off white foam. Herbal and lemony citrus hop aroma w/ some woody hints and caramel malt and fruitiness; also had very small hints of roast. Flavor is bitter throuhgout, but had a great malt backbone to counter bitterness. The caramel flavor is dominated by the herbal hop flavor and bitterness which lingers into the finish. There are also some fruity notes. It's lightly astringent w/a fuller body and low carbonation; pleasant warming alcohol. This one is not as citrusy as most other 2X IPA's, and it also seems to be more well balanced toward bitter than most which an IPA should.
