I ordered a glass of Moylan's Hopsickle from Al's of Hampden. The beer pours a golden color with a bubbly white head. The aroma is a good balance between lemon and grapefruit. The taste is heavy on lemon at first and finishes with grapefruit bitterness and tart. There are some pepper and pine hops that hit the tongue with some force. A great caramel base that is hidden but very much appreciated comes through after the finish. The alcohol content is 9.2% ABV. The Hopsickle was a very good beer, and that was apparent from the first sip. The caramel undertone that comes through on the finish made the experience very delightful.
