It’s Hoppier then a bullfrog with a stubbed toe: Yup, you read correctly. Red Brick now has a year round IPA called HopLanta! Look for HopLanta in 1/2 barrels, 1/6 barrels and 6 packs. Be sure to look for it in stores and restaurants near you!

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a brown/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, some hops. Taste is hoppier than the smell, some bitterness, malts are also present, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid and enjoyable beer.

From a mixed sixpack made up at Orlando Whole Foods market. Bottled 9/25/14, so over 3 months old.

a: Slightly hazy amber topped by a half finger thick white head which shrank to thin patchy surface foam and fairly dense lacing.

s: Strong floral, nearly perfumy aroma.

t: Dank vegetal and pine resin with a significant bitter bite. Vegetal and floral finish.

m: Medium with good body and plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: A different-tasting brew, somewhat harsh but still drinkable, boosted
by the persistently pleasant flowery aroma. May have suffered from age.

Another IPA, another hop pun. Out of a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

Hoplanta has a glow of orange with a reddish hue. A solid head is formed on the pour, leaving spots of lacing around the glass. The aroma brings sugar coated grapefruit to mind, also vague woody and caramel notes as well.

Vague citrus hits the palate first. Out comes a sweet and tangy tangerine. Bites of toffee add extra sweetness to this IPA. The vague citrus morphs into grapefruit, which adds a juicy aspect. Not too sweet. The beer brings a medium sized body and some chew, which I wasn't expecting in a standard IPA.

Hoplanta is hoppy enough and solid overall. It did well to clean up a spicy dinner.

Pours slightly less than clear with a barely off white head that has very good
retention with decent side glass lacing.
Aroma: Leads with Citrus and pine nut hops.
Taste: biscuit malts lead up front providing nice balance with the citrus like malts. Hops are
moderate and do not dominate the up front malts. Ends with a hoppy bitter finish.

Bottle > Mason Pint

A - Cloudy orange with a finger of thick foamy off white head, decent lacing.
S - Orange zest, big bready malt, some dank-ish pine and grapefruit.
T - Very east coast in style, sweet caramel and bread malt mix bitter grapefruit, orange and pine.
M - Decent bitterness, not too bad, lingers a bit too long.
O - OK IPA, very kind of run-of-the-mill
