3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Bright orange pour, and complex, chunky lacing. Aroma is bitter, resiny hops. Bitter hop flavors on top of a sticky malt backbone. I think the high alcohol is turning me off.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber beer with a medium foamy eggshell head. Subtle nose of orange, light pine, and some floral aromas, but overall pretty weak. Flavor is a bit stronger starting with some resinous bitterness that coats the tongue followed by hints of citrus and herbs. The flavor has an overall musky characteristic that isn’t unpleasant, but it’s not great either. Fairly tame IPA, but certainly drinkable.

355 ml bottle.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Mandarin on the nose, resinous hops, sweet malts and some hay. Sticky sweet fruits on the flavor, malts, resin and some caramel. A bit weird.

355 ml bottle. Thanks rosenbergh. Pours a reddish amber colour with a small thick head. Aroma of sweet caramel, strong gooseberry bush notes and herbs. Flavour of caramel malts, herbal notes, grains, berries, grassy bitterness and orange. Medium bodied. A bit harsh mouthfeel and a strong, bitter, juicy finish. A bit weird.

Red Brick HopLanta (US) - IPA - 6.7%
35 cl bottle, retail around 2.50€ BB 12/2014. Hazy copper color, thick short creamy offwhite to yellowish head, very fine creamy texture and plenty of lacing.
Hoppy nose already. Aroma: thick caramel malts, mild roast, brown sugar, spices, yeast and a wham of american hops. Taste is balanced prominent to the bitter end.Full bodied, soft, creamy texture very smooth, umami bitter finish. A slow sipper, interesting cross within IPA, Amber Ale and zwickel. Good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
a light amber body with a fast fading white head. There was a bit of lacing left. Aroma of sweet caramel malts and nice resinous pine hops. Some citrus. Flavor was mildly sweet and generically bitter. Decent flavor, but kind of two-dimensional. Easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an attractive clear amber color, with half a finger head. Nose is subtle, but some citrus and pine. The taste is also pretty subtle - a touch of sweetness up front and goes immediately to the hops - but it is a pretty tame bite. Easy to drink, maybe a nice change from the hop bomb IPAs I have been having lately - so verdict is good, but nothing memorable.
