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.

Great beer here. It has the older style IPA taste and feel that I don'tget from a lot of newer ipa's. Iewas finding myself thinking about getting a different style beer today and I saw this one. Great happiness and citrus tastes . The piney notesbare great. Good head when poured. This is a beer I would definitely buy over and over.

Poured into an IPA glass. The liquid is a dark copper-amber color, and has some nice little floaties suspended in it. Hopefully those are hop particles.... The pour produces a nice-sized head with good retention and lacing.

Aroma is hops with a noticeable malt backbone. Hops are piney and citrusy, and I feel like there's a bit of resin in there. The malts are bready and lightly toasted. It smells nice and balanced, which is good, but there's nothing in the aroma that really grabs me.

Flavor follows the nose. There are some piney and citrusy hop flavors, and some nice bready malt, but nothing particularly memorable. If I didn't know better, I would think that maybe it was old, because there's no bottle-dating and the hops are pretty muted, but I got this bottle just after they changed the label, so I'm sure it was bottled in the past two weeks.

Mouthfeel is slightly thick, with a lot of carbonation. Tiny bit of lingering bitterness.

Overall, it's drinkable, but not one that I'd probably ever choose again. I think this recipe is pretty old, and I have to admit that I'm partial to the newer, hipper IPAs, so maybe it's just personal taste...
