Moa Brewing Co. Southern Alps

What the brewers say

“Moa Southern Alps is hopped and dry-hopped with a blend of Nelson Sauvin and Citra hops, giving a strong citrus/lemongrass aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Eclectic combination of hops—spicy, floral, tropical fruit, melon, and grass, along with citrus, light fruity notes, passion fruit, stone fruit, peach, apricot, tangerine, herbal, and dank. Spicy clove and pepper phenols, with a heavy dose of floral. Wheat, with some malt sweetness in the background.”

Flavor: “Big time stone fruit, especially peach, with passion fruit and a bit of mango. Pine, mint, herb, and grass in the background. Clove and pepper phenols, and light, clean wheat. Grapefruit, which builds throughout the sip, and crescendos to a bitter finish.”

Overall: “Wonderfully complex hops aroma that’s loaded with stone fruits up front and transitions to an herbal, dank, and piney retronasal—hops lovers, rejoice! It’s crisp and dry, with a little bit of sweetness to get you through the bitterness and a body that stands up to that.”
