Notes/Commercial Description:
Our version of a West Coast Style IPA. There are 12 pounds of hops in every 7-barrel batch, with a solid malt backbone to hold up to the bitterness and hop flavor. Bright amber with orange hues and a dense rocky off-white head. The nose smells of pine and grapefruit with earthy notes and a hint of tropical fruit. The roundness of the malt carries the flavors through this hop-forward beer. The bitterness is persistent to the dry, clean finish.

Batch #167
Brewed 1/2/12

A beautiful beer! Copper colored with a slight haze. Nice-sized white head that persisted all the way down the glass. Sticky lace.

Aroma what one would expect. Sweet malt with citrus and herbal hops.

For taste, the grapefruit and resiny pine hops battled it out against a caramel malt background. One sip seemed more on the grapefruit side, the next more piney.

Crisp and dry. A nice hoppy IPA.

On tap in a sample glass.

Appearance: Copper color with a white head.

Smell: Sweet citrus, hops and some pine notes and maybe some honey.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Citrus sweet taste with bittersweet hops and pine on the aftertaste.

Overall: Good brew, I would have this one again for sure.

Bottled on 1/2/12 with a new label.
Need to put the this information on each bottle wtf!

Purchased @ Johnsons Market Place, New Durham NH.
Price - $8.99/bomber

Nice looking beer! Pale amber in color with some fog and a bright white creamy head that actually retains for awhile. Thick lacing aggressively clings to the drinking vessel. I can actually see the line of the pour with the lacing as I finish the glass.

Aroma of piney resin, citrus fruit and wood dominate this delight. Another local beer that's taken me by surprise.

The flavor begins with grapefruit but quickly changes to pine and some soft caramel malt. The taste is amazing for the strenghth of this beer.

Mouthfeel is light and bitter and leaves the tongue begging for some wetness. Dry, hell ya and well done for an under 6% beer.

Overall this beer rocks for the immediate area. The bar has been raised by certain New England breweries and we're seeeing the results spread like wild fire. By far my favorite offering by Moat Mountain and glad it's bottled. I'm not sure how long this one holds up over time, so I'll need to have a few more and compare. A surprise for the ABV. Here it is guys, Keep it fresh!!

**Update**
Purchased again a week later @ Somersworth Village Market, Somersworth NH
Price - $7.99/bomber
Beer label is the classic Moat Mountain design with Bottle # 52, brew # 1412 printed on it.

Translucent, unfiltered amber amber color. Thin white head that sticks everywhere on the way down. The bartender said she was having trouble with the IPA over foaming but it's the best pour I've ever got from Moat Mt.

Smells like grapefruit. Tastes like raw, bitter grapefruit. Full, unfiltered mouthfeel.

A solid addition to the grapefruit IPA family

Poured from a bomber into a tumbler pint, the beer is a hazy, bright, orange-gold coloring with a dense, foamy, two inch head that settles into a sparse film coating given a minute or two exposed to the air. Aromas are subtle, with a slight citrus sweetness and a little hint of resiny, light hops. Flavors are heavy on the middle of the tongue with a tart, pungent grapefruit presence. Hops presence is mostly overpowered in this brew, with only a hint of the peppery spicing. The beer has a decent midrange body, with a smooth feel in mouth. It's unfortunate the flavor profiles weren't stronger with that kind of physical foundation. The aftertaste is more of the tart and tang from the grapefruit flavors, with a sweet and tangy finish that turns slightly astringent after a bit. Not an IPA I would go out of my way for.
