Bottle at the Savannah Mellow Mushroom. Pours with a thick, mushy consistency. Has an opaque rust color and a firm standing head. Drinks with a thick orange malt essence and a nice alcoholic kick. Not bad for a Southern brew ... definitely a sipper. (#4706, 7/24/2012)

Hoppy, yes. Thin off white lacing and an amber color. This beer is thick with yeast sediment...crazy thick. The sediment and oiliness stay in the mouth and linger. The flavor isnít anything too exciting.

Enjoyed on tap at Turner Field in Atlanta, GA while enjoying a Giants vs. Braves game. This stuff was great for a ballpark brew! I didnít take tasting notes because I was too busy taking in Melky Cabreraís arrogance, but I remember this being pretty damn good and hoppy with a light potency and citrusy goodness. Again, great ballpark brew!

Draft. Poured a hazy deep gold with a medium-sized white head. Aroma was grapefruity hops, some malt. Flavor was that plus some pine, a bit of diacetyl, sort of a soapy quality. Needed some more malt backbone, I thought.

6 pack from Five Points. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. This is a solid IPA. A whiff presents assertive citrusy hop presence with a tasteful malts. Itís some general acidic bite. The flavor is clean with a grassy, grapefruity tang. Hoplanta may not provide a huge PNW IPA experience, but itís clean, solid and packs a respectable hop punch. I like it.

Orange pour with an aroma of citrus and some sweetness. Taste is a bit of a letdown. Some ok bitter but the palate is thin, almost pale ale like. If it didnít say IPA I would swear it was an APA.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a orange color with a small white head and floaties. It has a very nice citrus and grapefruit aroma. It tastes of pine, grapefruit and resin with a bitter aftertaste. The body is a bit thin and the floaties are gross but other than that this is a pretty good beer. Iíll try to rate this again with a fresher batch at some point.
