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.

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 (6264) - 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 (4999) - 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.

after4ever (8023) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft at apex. Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and creamy off white head. Lots of sheeting lace. Musty, damp bread dough nose. Creamy medium body with wooly carb. Nitrogen and damp bread dough on the mid palate. Earthy laundry finish.

WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - NOV 30, 2013
On tap at Moon Under Water, Victoria. Pours clear copper (rubeh tones), lasting white head. Nose is CTZ herb/spice/earthiness, dry hopped orange, some grape but not as predominant as in their (stellar) pale ale, crystal malt. Flavour is not too bitter with earthy fruitiness and crystal malt, oily palate, no tannins. More CTZ than NZ; this was quite nice.

douglas88 (9011) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap at Apex. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light tropical fruit nose. A smooth floral flavor, easy drinking, some tea, crispness, low bitterness, some resin and fruit. Mellow. Good beer overall.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 13, 2013
Its a bit of a hop-overdose this one with massive resinous and tropical fruit aromas. The colour was orange- amber with a good collar of head considering it came from gas-flow. For something that was dry-hopped so much, the flavour wasnt overwhelmingly bitter or too much of anything. Sure, it has a massive hoppiness with spruce, herbal anger and malty fruitiness, but I was surprised at how drinkable this was.

On tap at Biercraft on The Drive in Vancouver. Big hops and big malts in the same glass. This is a great one, and a great reason to drop by Biercraft tomorrow for another. More detail, hopefully, tomorrow.
