3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Hazy dark amber, off-white head that stays awhile, curtain of lace. Taste is strong caramel malt that is joined in the palate by citrus hops that easily balance, but donít completely cover up the malt. Not a power IPA, but a well-balanced Ale with good hops.

The nose is floral and peppery hops. The malt was a bit of a suprise. Definite honey to the fairly assertive malt flavor. The finish is a slightly astringent bitterness. This is a real IPA. Surprisingly aggressive beer from Red Brick.

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.

Bottle. Nice grapefruit, some resin, and a bit of cat piss. Cloudy orange-gold w/ 1-cm white head. Hefty bitter bite initial, sweetens in mid palate with some stewed peaches and chicken consomme, and bitter final levels out fairly soon. Medium heavy body. Not over the top with hops. Well made, but just a touch cloying in the mid and finish

(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%.

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.
