4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very deep orange pour. Very light tan head. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Delicious even from a plastic cup (boo). Sour and bitter taste. No aftertaste but a bit of alcohol in the afternose.
Ok I hit it. Too many hops. And this coming from a guy who worships hops. Pours cloudy gold with a small white top. Aroma is hops, shitloads of hops. Hopsickle is the right name as this smells like one. Taste is resinous, lacing citrus and pine hops. So much that it’s syrupy. I can only imagine the amount of malt thrown in this to try and balance it out. Didn’t work, it’s bitter, and syrupy and resinous with a touch of dank. It’s growing on me but I really don’t think that this is something that I want again. NordicV (2370) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2017
Fat @Syltan, Malmö. Bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doft av malt, karamell, citrus och tallbarr. I smaken tillkommer grapefrukt och kåda. Oljig munkänsla. ansalon (3918) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2017
Pours hazy amber with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of mango, peach, apricot, resin, pine. Taste is very fruity and quite grassy with a pleasant bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Bricks (1133) - Delaware, USA - APR 2, 2017
Heavenly orange brown color. Smells of sweet malt and some hops. Taste is super hoppy, sweet, but balanced. Very nice. MetalNHopHead (2020) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Moylan’s Hopsickle is hopped to hell and back, but it has some nice malty shoulders to stand on. It leaves absolutely no doubt about being a West Coast Imperial Ale, but the big caramel malt layer keeps this hop-forward brew in check. Amber-orange coloring. Pithy tropical fruit smells with some damp, dank pine needles. Flavor goes with the nose. Plenty of aggressive American hops. Pine, grapefruit, orange, peach, and floral notes. It’s resinous but not as bitter as you might expect. Finish is hugely dry yet surprisingly smooth. It’s good to see distribution from this brewery in my area. I hope that’s a trend that continues.

W aromacie lekkie utlenienie, miodek, ale i mango, iglaki, po ogrzaniu coraz większa landrynka. W smaku pełne, goryczka spora, leśna, niewiele owocowości, pije się bardzo dobrze, landrynki w smaku brak. Typowa IPA z USA, czyli na świeżo robiłaby to lepiej. sokuzs1 (1437) - POLAND - DEC 18, 2016

Bottle- pours orange with a big white head. Aroma is grapefruit, caramel and cereal malt. Taste is hop citrus up front with a caramely hop finish, was expecting a harsh finish but its quite smooth. Nordcore (1532) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2016
