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.

S: nice full hopped aroma with citrus, pine and herbal hop notes most prominent.

T: nice malt and hip balance with the hops providing herbal pine and citrus notes.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: not too bad. Simple but flavorful and nicely drinkable.

12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a gently hazed, light copper-hued body with a growing, lasting, off-white head. Quality lacework on the descent.

Smell: Strongly floral hops, but also an infusion of citrus and a mite bit earthy over a basic, simplistic base of bready malts.

Taste: Lightly bready malts with a small, small nibble of golden syrup sweetness. Notably floral hops with sips of lemon and white grapefruit juices and a light telltale earthiness. Moderately bitter. Juicy, floral on the bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not quite as expressive as Sweetwater's IPA, but it's fairly decent.

Slight gusher. Unsure of age. Aroma is floral, lightly toasted and caramelly, with underpinnings of citrus. Flavor follows suit, with a very bitter, harsh finish. It's toasted, nutty, citrusy, floral, but that harshness kills it for me. A metallic note surfaces late.
