look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Green Flash cask-style glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a very murky dark copper color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Sticky threads of lacing.

S- More of an herbal hop aroma with a scent of sweet malt in the tail. Slight alcohol fume.

T- Bitterness that doesn't have much of a flavor accompanying it; just bite and a vegetable flavor. Tastes slightly astringent and now the booze shows its full presence. IBUs are certainly in the 70+ range. The malts kind of get lost in the heavy hoppage and aren't as prevalent as in the aroma.

M- Bitey with a dryness that lingers. Also has a considerable alcohol sting. Medium carbonation and a solid body.

O- I'm glad I only bought a single bottle as this is a bit of a disappointing IPA. Not very much fun to drink.

12oz bottle served in a Portsmouth pint glass. Best by date reads 2/9/12, so this might have a little time on it.

A: Pours a yellowy orange color with a finger of bright white tight bubbled head. Lots of yeasty fragments in the brew and some hop haze. There are some carbo bubbles from the bottom of the glass. Sticky lacing.

S: I don't get much from the nose. I get some fruity hop presence and some sweet malts below the head. That is pretty much it.

T: The tip of the tongue immediately gets coated in a smooth hop bitterness. It's mostly pine that I get. In the middle of the mout you get some spiciness along with the malts. It's different, not bad just different than I have had before. The finish is crisp and dry.

M: Medium bodied with a solid mouth coating.

O: I'd go B or B- (appearance wasn't that great) on this one. It's a nice little offering but nothing TOO special.

Red Brick HopLanta has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, orange appearance with lots of bubble streams (etched glass), some lacing left behind, and an enormous amount of fairly big, light gray chunks suspended throughout. The aroma is of full, sweet, citrus and white bread, and the flavor is of the same, with a heafty piney bitterness across the sip. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Red Brick HopLanta finishes semi-dry, sweet, tasty, and easy drinking. Overall, this is really nice.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams imperial pint.

You think you've seen hazy IPAs before like Smuttynose Finestkind? Think again. This one takes delicious flavor particles to a whole new level, with chunks of whutzit suspended all through the glass. It's unfiltered, and I had bottles in my six-pack with less sediment than this one. The aroma is brightly hoppy, with plenty of citrus and a touch of caramel malts. The taste is bright and very strong with the citrus and grapefruit at first, then coming on strong with bright hops and a bit of grapefruit rind. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side and highly carbonated, it works wonderfully with the bright flavors this IPA offers. Overall, this is a very solid IPA from Red Brick. It's not as nice as the Double IPA they rotate in their Brick Mason series, but it's still very good.

I like the red frog on the yellow label. This IPA features a monstrous pour that overflowed my pint and left a giant eggshell head and layers of sticky lace. The body is an opaque light brown. Nose features citrus and pine and some floral notes as well. Strong start.

Strong hop presence from the front but not as west coast dominated as most American IPAs. Noble hopping is noticeable in the clean, pleasant aftertaste. Carbonation is solid but not overwhelming. Not much for malt flavors. This is a tasty, good looking, tightly made IPA. Not a superstar, but extremely solid and drinkable
