3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Bottle. Sweet buttery caramel malt and light citrus peel hops aroma. Hazy deep honey gold with a small ivory head, nice lacing. Buttery-bready caramel malt, and very mild citrus peel hops flavor. Body on the light side of medium, soft carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and celery? Weird. Flavor is somewhat bitter but also sour. Im getting some oranges, lemons, cooked veggies. Overall drinkable but a bit off.

Not an overly complex beer. If youíre a fan of bitterness without much balance, this is for you. Could use a tad more malt finish, more body, more sweetness. Still, with the catfish I was eating in Vicksburg, it wasnít too bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not crazy about this. Hop nose is restrained, initially all sweet caramel malt and maybe even a hint of diacetyl, but then it showed some floral and citrus hops. Flavor starts with a peppery hop burst then some thick caramel mouthfeel. Lingering citrus pepper bitterness. More bitter than flavored by hops, too heavy with malts. Usual amber color.

Bottle shared by Blake. This was a very nice surprise at the end of the night. Good hoppy floral aroma with possibly a little bit of sweet honey in the mix. Smooth and well balanced. Not too shabby.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours an orangish gold with a massive head and aromas of herbal hops, citrus and dish soap. Flavor is astringent and soapy with little redeeming to offer the world.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney grapefruit aroma. Toasty grain flavor bordering on a nice pilsner in that respect. The hops come through again a little later on the palate and in the finish. Grassy and hay like that is followed by some resins pine aspects. Not a typical hop profile but still enjoyable.

12oz bottle from publix lake ella. Gold pour with big fluffy white head and tons of retention. Aroma is bread, spice and light citrus. Tastes are pine, tropical fruit bitter and spices (juniper?). Drinkable - ok.
