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 copper amber color in the glass. Gorgeous tropical fruit hops aroma. More clean citrus and tropical fruit flavors balanced with a nice toasted malt note. Overall, this is a nice brew..

Draft at Binnys South Loop. Golden amber color. Slightly sticky head. Im unable to drink such a sweet, caramelized sugars, and abrasive hop bitterness. Messy fruit syrupiness. Dont enjoy the hops with the mess of sweetness and strong alcohol.

Foxbush (1942) - 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 (16655) - 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 (8691) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Slightly hazy dark golden with a thin white cap. The aroma has this hoppy passion fruit tone thats 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 wasnt too fond of, and a dry leafy finish with a slightly acidic grapefruit flavor on the aftertaste.

high_on_hops (809) - 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.
