Red Brick Hoplanta

While at Avenue Pub in New Orleans, I ordered a glass of Red Brick Hoplanta. The beer pours an orange amber color with a frothy white colored head. The aroma consists of lemon, tangerine, orange, grass, and pepper. The taste is bitter and citrusy with orange, lemon, and tangerine flavors giving it a nice fruitiness. There is a bitter spruce and peppery bite on the back of the throat, and the after taste leaves spruce linger for quite a while. The alcohol content is 6.7% ABV. I thought this was a rather good IPA with nice citrus flavors, bitter hop bite, and overall nice balance.
