500ml bottle purchased from Platinum Liquor in Bellevue Hill. Shared with Sam.
Pours a faintly hazed copper-tinged golden, with an initially firm but ultimately filmy head of clean white. Bubbling forms at the edges, forming larger specks amongst the fine coating. Lacing forms in streaks and specks. Body is pretty solid, and holds some tight, fine carbonation. Not bad all up.
Nose is lovely and sharp, with some direct, almost pointy citrus characters directly through the centre. It has a lovely greenness which suggests even some NZ hop character. Underpinning it is a mild husky grain character, which doesn't add a lot of sweetness, but provides a slight savoury basis. It's very pleasant.
Taste is also very good indeed. Brisk hops through the centre form the lynchpin, with a very clean, citric bitterness, tinged with a slightly green herbal character. Together they meld into a lovely pure hoppiness. Around the edges is just enough malt to provide some structure, and above are the lovely delicate aromatics, some rose, geranium and marzipan. It's genuinely lovely stuff, and a very beautiful IPA palate.
Feel is light and tingly, with the hops helped along their path by a fine carbonation.
Overall, I'm very impressed. I've had several beers from Moor now, and they are all solid. With this one, they've made the jump to excellent. Very good stuff indeed.

Pours pale amber with a fading head.
Nose shows some fruity hops along with pine and resinous notes. Also some floral characters and clean malt.
Fairly aggressive flavours. Big pine and grapefruit notes with accompanying sharp bitterness. Some biscuity malt underneath.
Could use a bit more carbonation.
Serving type: on-tap
