Poured refrigerator cold into two pyramidal wine glasses. Consumed over 15 minutes.
A: Downright chunky debris, swimming opacity on a bubbly orange
S: Orange, bready. Hops more obvious in the flavor than the nose.
T: Early flowers droop into spice, but the whole taste folds early with late emergent bitterness. With warmth, there is a background of caramel apple that smoothes out the final sips some.
M: The chunks make one fearful of the impending feel, but there is an astringent zing of metallic fizz that’s holds interest.
O: Not thrilling, with a consistently bitter end that spoils it some on its own and what food one might add alongside. But not uninteresting—glad we met.

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.
