3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper color with a huge soapy white head. Mild floral hop aroma and flavor. Pretty thin bodied and the finish is a little metalic.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Misty brown with orange tinge. Full creamy head with high laps of lacing. The nose is planty with less of a tribute to hops but moreso an homage to asparagus or artichoke. Itís probably some DMS messing around here. Lightly metallic. In the flavor it becomes tough to shake that horrid vegetal quality that was in the nose. Light pixy stick sweetness and a dull bitter thud against the palate. The finish is dry, bitter. The nose kills this.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice copper color with a thin cream head. Body is slightly clowded, a very attractive beer. Aroma is wonderful and hoppy smooth. Floral, creamy, citrus, all put together quite well. Flavor is a nice american pale ale, medium maltyness and a good dose of hops. Flavor comes with an ending that feel a little soapy. A really solid beer all around though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice, deep colored ale with a grainy texture much like the Hopsickle toned down to a Cali pale ale. Feel like the proximity to hop country floats through the vast majority of beers Iíve sampled here as well they should I suppose.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a clear mug, color was clear red-orange (not at all pale), lots of bubbly streams rising. Slim white head lasts well, leaves just a tad of lace. Aromas were hoppy grapefruit, yeast, bread, herbs, and alcohol. Taste was some pleasant-tasting, fresh hop herbalness above a subtle foundation of malt. Sour citrus, yeast, chocolate and a little earth were present. Mouthfeel was smooth and supple, maybe a tad thin, but pretty right for a Pale Ale. As the brewer says, this is a well-balanced middle-of-the-road ale, leaning to the hop side, but something most everyone could enjoy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber( 5%): Light gold color with some signs of sediment floating around. Huge and very thick white topping of head. It seriously looks like frosting on a cupcake. Nose contains a moderate aroma level of hops and a bit of a floral feature. The drink is mildly bitter with a notice of hop, however, it isnít much. Actually a tame and average pale ale with also a nice touch of malt in it. Donít see this beer made by Moylans as much as the others.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
All of these dang Moylans labels look alike to me - I almost passed this one up thinking it was their Irish Red because I couldnít remember the name and like I said, all of the dang labels look alike! Dang! I sure liked this brew - light bodied but absolutely full of flavor - sweet bready malts and juicy, very assertive hops with a long bitter finish.(geez, this seemed hoppier than the Breckenridge 471 IIPA we had earlier in the evening). This is good stuff.

Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thin head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and grapefruity with nice hop notes and a bit of pine. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty to start with a slight citrus note and a piney bitter finish. Medium bodied smooth and a touch dry.
