COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s Hoppier then a bullfrog with a stubbed toe: Yup, you read correctly. Red Brick now has a year round IPA called HopLanta! Red Brick will be launching in Atlanta this month then branching out to our 7 other states HopLanta will be packaged in 1/2 barrels, 1/6 barrels and 6 packs. Be sure to look for it hitting stores and restaurants near you!

chinchill (1797) - 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.

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.

Westmeister (1732) - 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.

bartlebier (1640) - 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%.

rbrazell (1629) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Draft at Fermentation. Bright amber pour with a small white head. Nose is grainy and sweet caramel malts with lingering citrus bitterness. Flavor is is more citrus and piney than the aroma with similare malt backing. Decent bitter finish. Not too bad.

andyhwcinc (1434) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2012
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 didn’t take tasting notes because I was too busy taking in Melky Cabrera’s arrogance, but I remember this being pretty damn good and hoppy with a light potency and citrusy goodness. Again, great ballpark brew!

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 19, 2012
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.

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2012
translucent amber orange with a thick beige head and lots of swirling debris. sticky medium body with medium carbonation.

aroma: toffee and caramel malt, metallic herbal hops.

taste: hop bitterness, caramel malt sweetness, dry herbal hops.

astringent and papery, without any enticing hop aromatics.

Fin duft av citrusfrukter. Gulbrun farge. Tynt lag skum. God litt syrlig smak av citrus.
