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.

Spab (2388) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
On tap at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill (Caesar’s Palace). Pours a modestly cloudy orange with good-sized, lasting off-white head. Aroma is big on resiny, sprucey hops with some citrus and caramel. Flavour has big resinous hops with some more understated citrusy character and chewy caramel. Astringent, fairly bitter finish. Good.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - MAY 23, 2013
On tap at the Gordon Ramsay Pub in Caesar’s Palace. This beer had great hop character with a moderate bitterness. The flavor was well balanced and the aroma was more tangy fruit and citrus. I could tell there was Columbus hops but glad it wasn’t overpowering. I think these guys are doing a great job. Wish it was easier to find!

dchmela (2640) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Tap at WOB. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Huge resinous hop aroma with lots grapes and citrus notes. Medium body malt with lots of chewy dank hop bitterness. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyCraft (3221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Tap at Devil’s Den. Red copper pour with nice lacing streaks. Notes were a little boozey, sweet, not a whole lot of citrus. More of a hoppy barelywine with all the sweet notes. Not a fan.
