Moa Festive IPA - Pine Edition is a big, bold, hoppy American style IPA. This beer has been hopped with Columbus, Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo and a new variety called Sorachi Ace, hop-back jammed with Nelson Sauvin, and dry hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Sorachi Ace. A nod to the first Festive IPA (Christmas ‘14) but kicked up a notch in ABV, IBU and late hop. It’s all about making the American hops shine, like a Christmas Pine.

Alluring tropical citrus pine aroma in a golden amber pour. Hop forward balance with a big resiney body - just like it says on the tin. Tasty - but surprisingly one dimensional in the end.

Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with lazinv yellowish head. The aroma has notes of spices, hops, catamel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, spices, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.

500ml bottle Amber pour with good head. Aroma of woody pine and malt. Medium bitterness, biscuit malt and hoppy tang to finish. Nice.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head.Hoppy and slightly spicy.Well balanced and refreshing.Went down very well on a warm summers evening.

On tap at Moa. Lots of pine, spruce, biscuit, orange. Controlled bitterness with some sweetness too. Not particularly exciting, but very drinkable.

Bule (2315) - California, USA - FEB 20, 2017
500ml bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Piney hop profile that lingers.

Bottle. Heavy aroma of pine. I have never had such piney beer. Taste is heavy bitter. Balanced. Very good.

500ml bottle from notes a year ago. Perfect name! Pine leaps from the glass from the first waft to the last mouthful. Simply wonderful

The ultimate Christmas Day beer for me. This does what it says it will do and more. Pours a hazy deep gold amber hue with a generous but quickly and completely diminishing foamy off white head and no lacing. Big bold evocative pine aromas as promised, complimented with delicious marmalade - orange, lemon, yellow grapefruit, and a light spice, ginger, and cheese background. Taste is moderate strong sweet though not cloying, moderate bitter. Very softly carbonated, moderate thickness, slightly syrupy very sticky, with a long dry spicy peppery resinous finish. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

NOthing wrong with this, the aroma is the one thing that lets it down a bit, I though it was bready and yeasty, but when you get past that into the pine and peppery spice it’s quite nice. Finish is long and dry. Colour is brilliance!
