Another stunner from this great brewery. Cloudy orange pour with a tenacious and lively beige head. Nose of pineapple, lemon and orange zest, peppery/spicy Nelson Sauvin hops. Also some toasted malt in there, well balanced with the hops. Taste is sort of an international trifecta... hop level of a great American pale ale, the great hop profile of Nelson from down under, and a biscuity malt profile from the UK. Cheers!

MoaZealand (13) - Ohoka, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 30, 2016
Up there with the Moa Southern Alps White IPA as my favourite beer of all time. Very strong but just as pleasant. The citrus notes are wonderful, its almost enough to put you off buying from any other brewery again.

gopherfan99 (1495) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle (labeled as MOA Pale Ale); pours cloudy orangish gold with an off white head; fruity aroma with notes of grass, malt, and floral; taste is slightly bitter with citrus fruits and some malt and pine hints; finish has the same light bitterness and bit of citrus tartness; nothing special

From a bottle. A well made and classic example of the style, lots of hops but balanced with nice biscuit malt body.

Braudog (6497) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle. Erupted. Dirty bronze, little light protrudes. Big pile of foam. Earthy nose, bordering on the sour. Drinks with a funky essence without seeming infected. Not what Id expected. Without a date stamp, Id call it "rural." (#6143, 2/27/2016)

330ml bottle at Beer station, Xiamen on 16 Jan. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus and fruit. Very bitter finish. No pine in this one, a little different but nice.
