3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Regional Food and Drink, DC tap ($6.50): Pours a pretty light color for an IPA and has a white head. Aroma is of piny and citrus hops. To my utmost surprise, the taste was exactly the same, which means the beer was quite bitter and left a substantial aftertaste. This was in some ways a one dimensional beer, but still had very good hop flavors and a nice feeling body. With the substantial aftertaste, I don’t know if this is a beer that makes you crave another.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nice fluffy white head on a clear darker orange yellow. Very bitter hops in the aroma with lots of grass and grapefruit, touch of maltiness but not much. Really a straight hop shot for the flavor, and much grassier than in the aroma but with pine touches as well. Medium body with nice bubbly carbonation. Good drinking IPA, and really quite bitter...which I enjoy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Translucent amber pour with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is strong resinous hops. Big pine, grapefruit juice and wet hops in the nose. Taste is bitter hops - grapefruit juice, pine resins, wet hops - chewy caramel and floral notes. Body is medium with a moderate carbonation. Strong lingering bitterness and strong oiliness from the hops. It pretty much scrapes the enamel from your teeth. Ends with more pine, grapefruit, citrus resins, caramel and sweet malt.

Pours a hazy golden. Aroma is piney resin, hops and a little grapefruit. Taste is a well balanced, complex blend of resiny hops, citrus, and a little sweet malt to smooth out the finish. A quality IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: 22oz from mainbrew.com
Visual: Pours a bright and clear light amber with a frothy white and long lasting head and great lacing on the glass.
Nose: Fragrant citrusy hops with a mild malt aroma:
Palate: Clean, light to medium body and bitter, citrusy, herbal, and resinous hops. Minerals, and pretty darn smooth and round for an American IPA.
Conclusion: This is a great all around IPA. You just can’t go wrong with a Moylan’s, go get yourself some!

Sampled on 1/22/2010. This India Pale Ale pours a medium copper orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, grapefruity and citrusy. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy, perhaps a little herbal. Nice carbonation. It is most definitely a Northern California IPA. Lots of hop flavors and a lot of long lasting hop bitterness. Good carbonation. Nice IPA. Lots of bitterness and nice hops flavors. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter and it last a good long time.
