Draft. Nose is an inviting tropical citrus experience with a light crackery and bready malt presence. Pour is fairly clear And light red in color. Small white head with excellent lacing. Taste. Oh. Taste. This is where the beer heads south. An overly sweet sticky mess that has an apple like character to it, then a slightly astringent drying finish. Seems like it is on the verge of a catastrophic problem and just barely holding itself together. Not that great. Or good. Or decent.

chinchill (2145) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2014
On tap at the brewery. A clear amber ale with a durable bone-colored head. Excellent lacing. Bitterness kicks up in the finish and lingers on in the grapefruit-rind flavored aftertaste. Some malt flavor with little [it seems] balancing sweetness.

ross (2100) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Multiple bottles. Went to georgia last weekend and saw this in the grocery store. Not something we get here in nc so i bought a six pack for the hotel. Pours out an amber color with a slight white head on it. Smell is very fruity and full of hops and citrus. Taste is sweet and smooth, interesting beer. Veryeasyto drink and something i would easily get again. Surprised it is rated this low.

rougeau13 (2034) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Hazy amber with a white lacy head. Aroma of caramel, tropical fruit, and citrus. Taste is malt forward initially, but finishes quite bitter. Medium bodied, smooth, and dry.

crazyvin (1994) - New York, USA - NOV 9, 2014
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.

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(backlog in abstinentia) Draught@The Distillery, Savannah GA 2409/2012. Missing some aromatics in the nose: taste is mainly a non-floral, sprucy notes on an almost woody caramalt backbone, imparting austere bitterness without much lure. Feels stronger than its under 7%.

shadey (1915) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 21, 2014
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.

Westmeister (1831) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Pours a medium amber orange with a thick semi-substaning head. Smell was floral and citrus. The taste was medium bitter with some citrus, earthiness and caramel malts; pretty well rounded and balanced. Your good, but average IPA. Nothing to complain about, but for me needs a little more hop profile in the taste.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Appearance: Dregs hang suspended like snowflakes frozen in the middle of a blizzard. Color is a slightly dirty hazy orange under a thin pithy head which fades into a patchy mostly full layer.
Nose: Mandarin and Clementine zest followed by green grass and lemon zest. Spice and citrus zest mingle together along the sides. Crunchy caramelized malt and melba underneath. Faint presence of sticky hop resins.
Palate: Medium to medium-light weight with a clean, almost thin mouthfeel. Flavor hits hardest and biggest up front, fading the further along it proceeds in the quaffing and tasting experience. Decent amount of fresh citrus zest – orange, lemon, and pink grapefruit. Rind at the back of each swallow grabs my throat – harsh and abrasive. Crunchy melba and caramelized malt underbelly helps carry the citrus notes.
Final Thoughts: Visually I was a bit put back when first approaching this beer but in the end, she proved to be alright…and that’s about it. Nothing about HopLanta jumped out at me and screamed for my attention. The flavors were there but two-dimensional and the palate from the middle onwards lacked any kind of personality or presence. Okay, but there are far better IPAs out there to quaff on a regular basis.
