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.

You know, sometimes I don't mind a malty IPA. This certainly fits that bill. Of course more hops is always good. But this is a decent enough brew, in spite of the very heavy malt base.

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.

Poured into a standard pint glass a dull lighter golden with a nicely formed half finger white head that held well.Lighter herbal citric hop notes in the nose along with a firm malt base wich was not very sweet.citric and herbal hops are the main flavor nots,although not in your face they pack a nice little punch,mild biscuit malt notes underneath.Although not a big American IPA it packs enough hops to satisfy.

Maybe I did make the perfect pour,but this massive inch and a half thick,tightly knit eggshell colored head. Amber golden hued with a bit of cloudiness and some light suspended sediment. Brussels lacing. Not much in the way of hop aroma. I get some pale malt. The taste reminds me of an extra special bitter with light hopping and plenty of delicate malt. Mouth is over carbonated and chalky.

On tap at the brewery.
A clear amber ale with a durable bone-colored head. Excellent lacing.

Feel: Relatively smooth up front with a crisp, dry finish.

Bitterness kicks up in the finish and lingers on in the grapefruit-rind flavored aftertaste. Some malt flavor with little [it seems] balancing sweetness.

O: a fine-looking, West Coast style IPA.
