Moylan’s Moylander Double IPA

Style and Glass: DIPA, Tulip
ABV, Volume & Calories: 8.5% in 22 fl oz. estimated at 400 C
Purchased at: Canal’s Burlington, NJ for $8.00 (Thanks, Mike!)

Aroma: beautiful, so nice, inviting, hops, cascade, summer nights.

Visuals: overwrought advertising and packaging, lots of awards, too much, fiery sunset, dark amber, brilliant, thin white head, staying lace.

Taste: well balanced, woody, crisp, hoppy, bitter, good strength.

Palate: royal, silky, rocky, longer bitter finish.

Overall: A brilliant example of a DIPA. A definite repeat. A favorite. Mike at Canal’s never steers you wrong.



Dogfish Head Olde School Barley Wine Style Ale

Style and Glass: BWSA, Snifter
ABV, Volume & Calories: 15% in 12 fl oz. estimated at 300C
Purchased at: Trenton Road Take Out, Fairless Hills, PA for $3.73

Aroma: wow, rich, raisins, peach, rose, autumn, leaves, mold, intoxicating.

Visuals: average label, nice 4 pack, like turkey gravy , muddy, mississippi, thick, thin white head, beautiful, sticky lace.

Taste: mostly malt up front, good hoppy finish, unbalanced in both directions, delicious, sugary, syrupy, bitter ending, good strength.

Palate: feeling of high quality, sticky, woody, long bitter finish.

Overall: Exactly what I paid for — not exactly a 120 minute IPA, but more of a mix between the 120 Minute and a Raison d’ extra. I’d have it again, for sure. very nice, but not one of my favorites. Medium value for high craft.
