for the first time, eminently awesome beer from Moylan's Brewery in Marin County! The details:
Moylan's Moylander Double IPA (Novato, CA; $7/12 oz). Here's the nice brewery description: "Moylander Double IPA is fat and resiny, with aggressive and excessive hops swinging on on an enormous malt backbone like naughty monkeys on a vine. Double malt, double hops--do the math, it’s academic." 8.5% ABV.
