I had picked this brew up at Raley’s the same day I grabbed the IPA. It only made sense to drink the IPA, and follow it with the Double the next day. So while you had the single (one) for Monday, you now get the double (two) for Tuesday.
This one pours a very cloudy orange. The aroma is of alcohol and sweet malt. There are more earthy hops in the aroma ths time around. The head, is again, full and fluffy. When sipping the beer, you have to dig through this thick head, and it is full of hops. This beer is very thick and hearty for something so pale. Lots of earthy bitter hops and lots of alcohol lead the way while there is a base of bready sweet malt. The sweetness remind me of caramel, very thick and sweet, but there is so much going on here you can’t say this is a particularly sweet Double IPA. The finish is very bitter, again, a ton of hops. The hops linger on your palate for quite some time. While drinking the beer, this is fine, but afterwards they seemedto lingera little longer than I would have preffered. Either way, I’m generally of the belief that there’s nothing wrong with too much hops.
So now I’ve completed the comparison of the single vs double IPA. I think Moylans makes two very good examples of the styles, but I would lean towards their IPA over the double. My recommendation would be to try this yourself. Both are worthy of your moeny and your time.
