Slightly cloudy amber in color. Forms a modest sticky white head. Good retention for what does form. Copious lacing. Aroma is a blend of caramel malts, bitter citrus and pine hops. Taste is more of the same. Rather bitter. Citrus zest, citrus pith. Maybe a little pine. Caramel malt. Medium body. Aggressive bitterness, bordering on soapy. A rather hoppy and bitter east coast style IPA.

Hop Lanta is an orange/tan colored beer with a cloudy body and a mildly citrus- like nose. The frothy off- white foam holds its own for a decent amount of time, but does settle down and it makes itself comfortable while leaving some lace.

This beer has a flavor of bread, citrus/orange, pine, and toast. The bready malts balance out this beer to a greater degree than others, making it a good choice for those who do not like or have grown tired of the over- hopped west coast style IPA. The flavor here bounces back and forth between citrus/fruit and bread/biscuits.

Big, hoppy IPA are nice from time to time, but there is nothing wrong with a more balanced IPA and that is what you get with Hop Lanta. The wording on the label exaggerates the hop flavor- it is not as extreme as the label leads you to believe. It is actually balanced out with the malts and made into an agreeable, more refreshing IPA that would make a good summer beer.

Part of a pickyourown sixer at albeit a bargain. Lets give this red brick selection a whirl. Popping the top I get a nice hop belt, classic citrus. Pouring into my trusty SAPP this brew is a deep bronze with a nice two finger off white fine bubble head. On the taste this brew is a very classic version of an IPA. Balanced and tasty, a good staple of this flavor. Nothing I would seek out but I would never turn one down.
