COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa The Hoppit displays lots of New Zealand hop characters, passionfruit, pine (herbaceous), grapefruit and fresh, sweet tropical hop aromas. A golden, orange hue with a great hop haze. Rich malt tones, almost toasted with a lingering marmaladey bitterness that displays a sharp but smooth, sweet finish. Dry hopped seven times over two weeks, Moa The Hoppit is massive on the senses.

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Amber wth a slight haze. No head to speak of. Rich chewy crystal malts on the nose. Slight melon/citrus, but chewy. Kiwi hops are not good for this type of beer.

onceblind (4078) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Slightly hazy dark golden with a thin white cap. The aroma has this hoppy passion fruit tone that’s a bit juicy but also a bit piney. Taste is similar but heavier on the pine resin with some grapefruit and passion fruit tones followed by a piney resin bitterness I wasn’t too fond of, and a dry leafy finish with a slightly acidic grapefruit flavor on the aftertaste.

high_on_hops (622) - Burlingame, California, USA - FEB 16, 2014
On tap. Pours a medium gold color with a white head. The aroma has lots of tropical fruit as well as resin and some citrus. The flavor is bright, fruity hops up front with a malt backbone and a slightly syrupy, bitter finish over a medium-heavy body.

3fourths (8036) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Draft at Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta. Hazed ruby tones. Burnt apples, burnt maraschino cherries, burnt peaches, nutty and bready. Fruit cocktail mishmash. Medium-full body with abusive sweetness, dear lord. Highly bitter, lots of caramelized sugar, goopy sugar syrup texture.

mansquito (3399) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Coopers, NYC tap: Pours slightly hazed orange with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, floral bouquet, tree, earthy dirt, and sweet malts. Taste is rather bitter with a veritable hop sting. Very fresh tasting. Certainly qualifies as a sipper in the world of DIPAs. Slightly sweet.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Very hazy copper color. Pours all foam like a misbehaving. American light pale lager with to co2 cranked up way too high to 8psi. Danky malt aroma with the malt winning the fight. Its got that crazy new zealand hop taste. You know what that is. Its not as bad as you would think from the ratings so try one, or not.
