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, this beer is massive on the senses.

Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Smells of tropical fruit, grapefruit. Taste is bitter and sweet - fruity hops - dragon fruit and grapefruit subdued malt backing

beastiefan2k (3261) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Draft at Binny’s South Loop. Golden amber color. Slightly sticky head. I’m unable to drink such a sweet, caramelized sugars, and abrasive hop bitterness. Messy fruit syrupiness. Don’t enjoy the hops with the mess of sweetness and strong alcohol.

Foxbush (1711) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2014
Draft at Burger Bach in the Village This may be my first new Zealand beer. The ale poured a cloudy amber with a nice white head formation. The white head turned to lacing down the glass. There was a warm bitterness that at first was citrus like or floral hops. The finish was more pine resin like. A complex balanced beverage with an excellent ABV. The medium body ale had average carbonation. This is very drinkable Imperial IPA.

Oakes (14841) - 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 (6676) - 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 (806) - 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.
