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.

Delicious IPA via bottled ATL brew. Nice hippy taste. You know you've got a good IPA when people take a drink & say "ewwww!" I've enjoyed other IPA's which I've enjoyed better, but this is good! Amber coloring, enjoyed cold, in a glass of course. The feel is smooth, if you like IPA of course!

Pours a deep gold going toward orange. Head is 1+ finger and off white in color. Fair amount of sticky lacing left behind.

Aroma is rather than subdued. A bit of citrus, lemon, grapefruit, and orange. Just a bit of caramel malt.

Taste is like the aroma though a bit more intense. Lemon, orange, and grapefruit hops. Just a hint of pine. Caramel malt with some toffee and raw bread dough. Some honey-like sweetness.

Medium body with medium carbonation. Rather bitter aftertaste with something a touch metallic.

A decent IPA which could use a major aromatic boost. Also, the aftertaste is not particularly pleasant.

Nice floral aroma. A bit more malt than expected. Quaffable, but there's too many other better canned IPAs out there.

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, and subdued citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is quite malty and fairly boring for the style.

Serving type: bottle.
