An India Pale Ale featuring New Zealand Motueka hops. This hop represents a triploid substitute for the traditional Saaz. Its unique Saaz-like flavour, with a New Zealand twist, has made this hop very sought after by both craft and larger international brewers. The base IPA grain bill includes Pale malt, wheat, Vienna and Munich malts, while the Motueka has created a unique citrus flavor resulting in a very soft and interesting IPA.

Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Malty and hoppy. Orange throughout. Amber color. This hop stands out as creamy with some bitterness. Well done.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a nice amber color with a moderate head. Great level of hoppiness, in both the nose and the taste of this. I would definitely drink this IPA again.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Pours clear amber to brown. Head is dense and stands for some time. Aroma is an extreme mix of floral and fresh citrus complexitiex backed up with some light hop spiciness and evident bready and light toasted malt aromas. Flavor is thick hop resins, bread, citrus, biscuit malts, again this resinous hop oil. Medium bitterness, dry and somewhat tart finish. Fullish body. Pretty enjoyable beer. Impressed with the Motueka.

Aroma was very resinous with some grapefruit, nuts and nougat. Appearance was copper with bone head. Flavor is a crescendo of resinous hops; the finish is slightly bitter with some grapefruit. Palate is very bubbly and sticky. Very tasty.
