12 oz bottle; no date.
Beer of the month offering; a birthday gift.

A: Poured a nice single finger head with little retention; amber and a bit hazy.

S: not much aroma; slightly hoppy.

T: Slightly malty with the hops mostly citrus grapefruit front notes.

M: Medium body and carbonation.

Overall: a bit bland but drinkable.

A: A brownish orange-amber. Light tan head on top, and the body is very cloudy.

S: Hoppy with perhaps a bit of honey and orange blossom. Floral notes and caramel, there is a good bit of sweetness in there. The finish to the aroma has something weird in it, maybe a touch cloying, or metallic.... I can't quite seem to pick it up.

T: Bitterness is prevelant, with some caramel notes in the back. The hops come out with citrus and floral notes. There is a hint of a flour note. Not sure what I am picking up in this beer, but it something I am not a fan of.. perhaps the hop combination in conjunction with the malty sweetness. Perhaps a little too floral?

M: Medium to Medium thick. Carbonation is moderate to low, there is almost a sticky hop oil left over in your mouth..

O: Overall it's decent, but there is something in the flavor I am not in love with. Not amazing, but certainly drinkable, and decent.

Review is from notes taken on 7/12/2012. Poured from the bottle to a pint glass.

Appearance: Pour is a coppery/apricot color and it starts with a solid 1 and 1/2 finger slightly off-white head that fades relatively quickly to a thin, uneven skim; body has tons of sediment/floaties swirling around... holy shit, run this thing through a strainer! Fair lacing is left behind in thin swaths and a couple of patches, but not as much as I would hope in something that should have the kind of hop presence I would expect in something called "Hoplanta."

Smell: More sweet malt than anything, but there is a fair hint of some citric hop behind it -- some orange peel, some bitter grassy/pine. Not bad, but certainly a notch below what I would want -- pretty average.

Taste: Same as the smell -- malt is more present than the hops in the foreground, with some bitter seeping in and making its presence known at the end and they're like some shredded orange peel. Not bad, again, average at best.

Mouthfeel: Decent, medium bodied, perhaps a tad watery but it's alright; a sticky coating is left on the roof of the mouth; carbonation is ample - quite possibly the strongest aspect of this beer.

Overall: If I was in a restaurant and this was on tap, I probably would consider picking it up, but when it's sitting on the shelves next to Torpedo, there's not much reason to pick it up.
