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.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2003
I quality IPA if there ever was one. I would tend to disagree with the double part, but it's still good nonetheless. Strong citrus smell and flavor, grapefruit is the keynote there. Palate is smooth and silky with a solid hoppy finish. The whole beer overall is a little to thin, which is its only downside in my eyes.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Pours a dark, darker than expected, amber color with a nice small, dense head. Not much carbonation. Aroma sweet malt, hoppy, and I can smell some alcohol in the aroma...that would be a mark against the beer...let me try again...yes, I smell alcohol. Taste, I was expecting something akin to dreadnaught, but this is completely different. Very malty, sweet, roasted, bitter. Reminds me a little of Stone's arrogant bastard, or maybe even Rogue's Dead Guy Ale. More complex than dreadnaught, Ruination, and DFH 90, but not necessarily in a good way. I would characterize this as an American strong more than an imperial/double IPA, but what the hell do I know? Overall a tasty ale, but not one that I would probably go for again, whereas I buy Dreadnaught every chance I get. UPDATE: I have to agree with many raters here--this ale is very sweet and cloying. The warmer it gets and the more I drink the more I taste it. This is NOT a session beer.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - SEP 27, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2006 Unusually dark in color for an IPA: a ruddy red/brown with a medium sized off white head; slightly cloudy. Aroma has notes of sharp citrusy american hops (colombus?), some malty sweetness, a touch of lemon, and a faint metallic hint in the background. Flavor is mildly hoppy, bitter thoughout, somewhat dry, acidic finish. It’s good, but I wouldn’t run out for another either.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Deep amber color with Dense white head. Huge hop aroma. This is a mega malt brew. The flavor is a bit sweet for me and compared to the other Double/Imperial IPA's. It was good, but I won't be rushing out to buy another.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Dark reddish-brown to amber body. Big off-white head. Nice lacing.
Sweet and hoppy aroma. Somewhat subdued aroma for double anything. A caramel aroma comes out as the beer approaches room temperature.
Nice malt/hop balance. Tilting more towards malt and alcohol as the beer warms.
Medium-bodied and very drinkable for the %ABV.

JCW (1277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Honey colored, pours with a good head. Initial impression was that it was grass,slightly citrusy and sweet. Finishing the glass I had a problem with the sweetness. Decent IPA, but Double?

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 Tasted at Eric & Wendy’s Go to Hell, Isabel Party 2003... This beer rocks!... Sparkling clear, beautiful orange ale. Small, frothy, ivory-colored head. Decent lacing. The nose is so rich and so hoppy. Truly an Imperial IPA. Notes of butterscotch, dark syrup and pine sap. Floral and citrusy as well. Very full-bodied with an entire field of barley and a whole grove of hops stuffed within the bottle. A bit woodsy. Chewy texture. Syrupy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Bitter with lots of earth and damp straw in the surprisingly dry, piney finish. World Class Ale!

a beautiful looking beer, very well balanced until the aftertaste, then it gets a bit bitter, but not too bitter
