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.

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.

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.

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

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!

22 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Light citrus, grassy, and piney hops followed by sweet pale and bready malts.

Taste: The bitterness overpowers the sweet and bready malts. My teeth are tingling a lot and my palate is a bit chalky too.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat smooth, medium carbonation, medium bodied, hop tingling, and a bit chalky.

Overall: I wouldn't mind trying this beet out on draft than through a bottle. $10 at the brewpub seems to be a bit much too when their cans go for 5. This beer

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.

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.

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?
