Look - poured from 12oz bottle into an oversized wine glass. Pours a hazy dark orange with 2 finger offwhite head with fairly good lacing

Smell - lots of hops, lots of sweet grapefruit. Almost ruby red

Taste - Hops all the way

Feel - medium

Overall, a very nice IPA with great fruity scents and lots of hoppiness, Very refreshing

Pours a hazy light amber. I like the fact that it comes in a can but the taste here just don't work for me. It has a bitterness that is just not balanced by the malt. and while I do like a bitter IPA this one just doesn't work for me.

Pretty standard. Hop profile is a little off and some sweet malt sneaks through and not necessarily in a good way.

12-oz bottle into Belgian ale glass

A - 3 fingers off-white foam over a somewhat cloudy body of golden amber; high in visible carbonation; laces the glass nicely

S - citrus and floral, caramel sweetness; not very pronounced

T - notes of citrus followed by bread and caramel sweetness, pine, dry piney/lemony finish

M - slick full body, high carbonation

O - Hoplanta is a pretty good IPA all in all. Lacking in the aroma department, but otherwise quite pleasant. Lots of character from the malts, but still hoppy enough to be considered an IPA.
