Pours a golden orange color with a small, but nicely creamy head. Quite a bit of yeasty sediment in the bottom of the bottle, which I managed to avoid pouring in, for the most part. Deep juicy citrus, apricot, and floral hops over some caramel malt. There's a slight vegetal/herbal note that throws things out of whack a little. Solid hoppy flavor with a nice citrus oil quality to it. Bitter pine, grapefruit, and a pale malt sweetness. Some of the herbalness comes through here, but in a less funky way. Lingering orange pulp. Medium bodied - solid carbonation and bitterness. Not bad at all.

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.

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.
