3.58/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle, fresh release (but date code is missing from bottle). Served at around 45F.

Pours murky orange/amber with lots of bits of floaties flying around. Two finger off-white long-lasting head that is quite dense and foamy and leaves some super sticky rings and spots of lacing.

Aroma is primarily floral and grassy with some notes of apricot, citrus and pine, bread and caramel malts underneath. Good but not great strength.

Flavor is orange and grapefruit citrus, apricots, resinous hops and some pine, fairly hefty caramel malt backbone, a bit of sweetness but finishes mostly dry with good bitterness. Minimal alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, creamy, good to strong carbonation.

Very solid IPA from Red Brick. Quite hoppy but balanced with a good malt backbone.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- Cloudy, dark amber color. Looks unfiltered. Nice 1 finger head with pretty good lacing.

S- Sweet grapefruit, orange, pine, and caramel.

T- You're hit with some sweet, lightly sour, citrus and malt up front. Pine, grapefruit rind and slight resin almost immediately joins the party as you swallow. I love the how the bitterness balances the sweetness.

M- Medium body. Lightly oily and drying.

O- I generally prefer sweeter IPAs, but the piney bitterness of this one was really nice to me. It wasn't overpowering, but it flirted with it. It was strong enough to be the dominant sensation, but subtle enough to let the other flavors be known. I wouldn't have any problem drinking this again.

Red Brick Hoplanta
12 oz. brown bottle, "BOTTLED ON: 02/06/14"... 4 months old
$2 @ Whole Foods, Tampa, FL

Appearance: Hazy, almost cloudy deep-amber colored body beneath a finger thick head of creamy off-white froth. The head retention is very good, and it leaves broken sheet of lace in its wake.

Smell: Citrus and biscuity malt. Some pine.

Taste: Rich. There's an initial sharpness to the hops but that immediately recedes into a pillow of rich maltiness. Honeyish. Floral. Piney. It's hoppy, but it's easy-going hoppy. Solidly bitter, as well, but the fullness of the malt holds up. Drying finish as the malt recedes. Lingering hoppy notes of pine, orange, and flowers.

Mouthfeel: Medium with a dextrinous character. Median, fine-bubbled carbonation keeps it crisp.

Overall: Pleasant and easily enjoyable IPA with a rich malt component.

Great beer here. It has the older style IPA taste and feel that I don'tget from a lot of newer ipa's. Iewas finding myself thinking about getting a different style beer today and I saw this one. Great happiness and citrus tastes . The piney notesbare great. Good head when poured. This is a beer I would definitely buy over and over.
