Moa Luna-tic Black IPA (500ml Bottle)
Appearing like a Black IPA but drinking more like a Pale IPA, this deceptive brew eclipsed all it's North Island competition in Moa's Liqourland brewing comp. Concocted by Amie from Fitzroy and Aaron from Mt Maunganui branch, it was generously hopped using some of the USA's finest to summon powerful pine, citrus and resinous forces. Best enjoyed at full moon on a dark and stormy night.
An emerging beer style roughly defined as a beer with IPA-level hopping, relatively high alcohol and a distinct toasty dark malt character. Typically lacks the roastiness and body of a strong stout and is hoppier than a strong porter. Expressive dry-hopping is common. Also called India Dark Ale, India Black Ale, Cascadian Dark Ale, Dark IPA, and sometimes India Brown Ale.
