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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 6/7/02 Cask-conditioned draught: Pineapple juice aroma, cloudy brown w/ off-white head, not as fruity as the aroma suggested, however still a bit fruity in flavor with a hoppy finish. 6/17/02: Bottle: Aroma was much more grassy and IPA-like than the draught, Had to add a point for the nice complex hoppiness I didn't notice before

I am honestly surprised at the high rating this has right now. I was expecting more from something with the now trendy ’double’ term. Had about half the hops taste of Ruinition or Hop Rod. Still a decent IPA, but if I were a hop head I would go for something else. Did I get a bad bottle?

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2002
Medium sized oily biege head and a hopy nose. Pours coppery. Starts off fairly thin in the mouth with an abrasive thin mouthfeel and a steely hop taste. Malt asserts itself after first 3d of the glass and balance this IPA out nicely. Resiny and vinious with the mouthfel changeing to slightly oily at halfway through the glass.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2002
Poured with a huge head, one inch of beer to eight inches of head. Oddly enough, carbonation didn’t seem too screwed up when drinking it, just foamed excessively in the pour. Very bitter and hoppy, with grapefruity citrusy hops. Malts are definitely there, but lacks the backbone of a Ruination or 90-Minute IPA. Nicely creamy, but lacks the depth I expect in a super IPA.

A beautiful beer... dark copper color. Full-bodied, loads of chewy caramel and toasted malts, nice complex hoppiness. A very pleasant, lingering, mouth watering bitter aftertaste. A special IPA, not an everyday quaffer.

Wonderful!! This is a real treat! Crisp, fruity, malty and the hops that take your head off. This is a hop lovers dream, I need more!

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 13, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 Rating #1 Bottle (8 4 9 4 18). A fantastic foamy white head on an amber body with rising bubbles. A hoppy and fruity nose that screams great IPA. A medium body creamy smooth malty, bitter, and hop filled beer. Rating #2 Bottle (8 4 8 4 18). Deep amber in color with a slightly creamy tan head. A strong fruity (cherry, grapefruit), and hop aroma. Sweet liquid joy.

Novato, CA. tap. Not as much foam after the pour as with the IPA and there’s relatedly less aroma -- slight malt and hoppiness. Taste is a two-cheeked giant ass beer with whopping bitterness and atypically large malt. Lots of sweetness. I’m interested in retasting but I doubt such a sweet beer would grow on me. An experiential beer with an irreproachable character.

TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2004 The aroma is jammed with hops, sweetness, herbs, spruce, medicinal hint, pine, oranges, and brash alcohol as it warms. The yeast pour adds a nice doughiness. The palate includes a wet/dryish combo. The hops lend the best of both worlds with tropical fruitiness and sugary resiny sweetness. Very balanced, with the Chinook/Cascade chewiness. Very out of control at the same time, just the way I prefer an Imperial IPA to be. This gives 90 Minute a run for its money. Unlike 90 minute, this only improves as it reaches room temp. Hopheads will consider this a treat.
