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.

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!!
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.

From a growler filled yesterday at the source.
Pours dark copper with a slight haze and a half inch head of white foam. Tattered lacing and a solid skim coat on the surface for the duration of the glass.
Aromatics lead off with a nice combo of pine and grapefruit. Resiny with a bit of malt backbone, a hint of dankness and tropical fruit.
Medium bodied with a crisp, snappy mouthfeel.
Bitter grapefuit rind and pine sap lead off the palate. Plump malt and a chaulky mineral note follow through. The beer is quite dry with plenty of hop flavor and a substantial amount of bitterness without being overbearing.
Finishes with lingering grapefruit, pine and a solid bitterness.
Tasty IPA and certainly long overdue at the Moat for a truly hop-forward brew. Nicely done!

Bomber > Pint Glass
A - Pours a cloudy orange some yeast floating around, 2 fingers of off white head, mild lacing.
S - Good aroma, lots of ripe tropical fruit, mango, and papaya, sweet malt, a little floral.
T - Good flavor, those tropical notes are there from start to finish, mid front you get some dry bitterness, some floral notes, a little bready and sweet malt.
M - Chewy and full, somewhat dry soapy finish that lingers, being the downside.
O - Very good IPA, the aroma is the best part of this beer for sure.

Fresh bomber (delivered by brewer for tasting event at Chase St Market Jan 20). $8.99 is pricy for a bomber of IPA (this is not Sculpin; but it is $9.99 at Wayne's in North Woodstock).
Hazy orange with a fine white head with fairly good retention that leaves the glass draped with lacing.
A bit of citrus and biscuit on the nose. Subdued but pleasant aroma. The flavor is a little bolder. Citrus and biscuit hit right off with a spicy, pine finish. Bitterness is a bit aggressive.
Medium body with a good mouthfeel and carbonation. This is a surprise from Moat Mountain and one of the better NH IPA's I have ever tasted. Maybe things are looking up on the local scene?

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.

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
