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.

Bule (1889) - California, USA - AUG 16, 2013
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a hazy pale brown color without much head. Mild hop flavors but there seems to be a number of different hop flavors that don't come together too well. A little too sweet.

mcberko (15018) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
On tap at Apex, pours an opaque orange with a small white head. Aroma of doughy notes, some slightly orange-like fruity notes, and moderate floral hops. Flavour brings out loads of oranges, doughy malts and floral hops. Not very hoppy, but very fruity and light on the palate. Highly drinkable, and not suggestive of a higher alcohol beer. Great stuff.

jbruner (4216) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a nice copper on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is heavy on the caramel malt and booze, with a hint of floral citrus behind. Taste is more balanced, with a boozy bitter hop ending. Different than what Im used to, but good.

jdavidh (164) - California, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Poured a lovely copper on tap into a tulip. Nose is freshly floral. Very hoppy taste, dominated by bitterness with not a lot of subtlety. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Spab (3487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
On tap at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill (Caesars 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 (1700) - Nevada, USA - MAY 23, 2013
On tap at the Gordon Ramsay Pub in Caesars 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 wasnt overpowering. I think these guys are doing a great job. Wish it was easier to find!

dchmela (3022) - 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 (6309) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Tap at Devils 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.
