COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa South Pacific I.P.A. is a New Zealand take on a popular North American beer style. Using famous Cascade and Nelson Sauvin hops, the dominant features in this beer are unique to New Zealand and the Moa bottle conditioned brewing method. Its hoppy strength displays powerful floral, citrus and tropical notes backed up with a strong malt backbone.

I think this was a nice beer. I had one mouthful before my son knocked it down the back of the couch. First mouthful was good tho�� ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl green embossed bottle as "Pale ale". Pours golden with a super-fizzy head. Aroma is raisiny and yeast. Flavor is some nelson hops, very vegetal and pepepry, but mostly raisiny malt. Over carbed. Not good.

KeefOz (1949) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2017
Poured a clouded orange amber with a two-finger white foamy head that retained well before diminishing to a thin cap that laced OK. Carbonation high, lively and medium to coarse. Aroma slightly sweet with hints of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is of fresh citrus/grapefruit with a low to moderate hops bitterness balanced with a malt tones. Light to medium body. Slightly dry and slightly sweet with a lingering, firm bitter finish; more like an APA.

IPA pours darker orange, not too foamy. Nose has grass, really grassy hops there actually. Bit of sweetness. Taste is quite hoppy, some light tropics. Dry hop linger, more grassy stuff going on, refreshing, more like session IPA though. When not really spectacular, drinks well.

hazy dark amber. Sweet marmalade and crystal malt nose. Nice fresh limey note on initial tasting but comes back to sticky sweet malt, hops are a touch oxidised at this point too so very much an old school American IPA. Lack of bitterness means balance skewed too much toward the malt. Would like to try this fresh though.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2017 From bottle in IPA glass, 5.7% abv. Pours slightly hazy amber, thick frothy white head with fruity and earthy hop aroma. Decent malt base with lingering pine hop bitterness. Not sure why it's linked to the old 5% Moa Pale Ale and still listed as an APA

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, it’s almost enough to put you off buying from any other brewery again.

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
