Moa Blackhops is our interpretation of this emerging Black IPA style. Much like a typical IPA it has huge tropical hop aromatics, but with a blend of dark roasted malts that add another layer of complexity. Displaying mocha and roasted coffee aromas with a noticeable savoury bitterness, the late hopping with Simcoe and Cascade hops give it an extra aromatic hit.

Dark Coke colour, rich caramel aroma. Beautiful green caramel balance, a truly great IPA that's well improved by the dark bitter toast flavour. Very impressive.

The head is ok, the body black. It smells chocolate, bitter, hoparomatic, bit coffee. The taste is intensive hoppy, chocolate, very bitter, darkmalty, roasty, nice. 3,7

it was rather hoppy with a bit of roast coffee beans to tell us its a black ipa but otherwise very empty flavourwise. pretty disappointing really.
