COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editorís note: If you had the 8.1% abv version marketed since 2014 as a Double Red India Pale Ale, this is the wrong beer page. Please rate under Green Flash Hop Head Red Double IPA (2014 -). Resinous hop characteristics emerge from an enormous hopping with Columbus, Nugget and Amarillo overtaking the rich caramel malt base. To add luscious
hop flavors and enticingly floral hop aromas, we dry-hop the brew with bucket loads of Amarillo hops. Welcome to the world of Red IPA.

Bottle poured read with a white head The aroma had herbal and floral notes with light Carmel notes. Taste had caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it wasnt a hop blast! The palate is invigorating. I didn’t find it to be too complex, but it’s still decent.

Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus, fruits, resin, hops. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. Very dry. Wish I could have tasted a fresher sample, but even aged it was damn fine, even though it has probably lost its hoppy edge.

The aroma has hops that are herbal and floral. As I sip, I also taste caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it isnít overwhelming. The palate is invigorating. I didnít find it to be too complex, but itís still good.

Pour from bottle is dark red, aroma is bitter floral and hoppy, taste is roasted with a strong hop forward flavor, finish is bitter and a full mouth feel

Great beer. Very original as this beer has an iced tea flavor to it. Strange yet intriguing. Would try again.

22oz bottle - I feel like Iíve typed "I love Green Flash" hundreds of times. Itís like theyíve tapped into my conscious and theyíve brewed it exactly how I like it. Balance is the key word with this beer and it expertly showcases both malts and hops in this to a high degree. Caramel and citrus hops fight for the right to be called the dominant aroma, but neither are. The powerful malts and robust hops mingle so incredibly well together, itís incredible. Insanely easy to drink the whole bottle.

Super porzadne piwo, tresciwe o pieknym aromacie bzu, lesnych owocow i cytrusow. Miedziany metny kolor, zbrudzony, piana spora i trwala. Bardzo aromatyczne doznania, mozna wachac jak najlepsze perfumy. Smak chmielowy nieco slodowy i leciutki posmak karmelowego slodu, ale gdzies ukryty za potezna dawka Amarillo. Niemal w smaku jak imperial IPA.

more like an ipa or a super hoppy amber. i compare it to Lagunitas Imperial Red, and since Iíve only had one...no inconcistency issues yet. Not as hoppy as a Red Rocket, but maltier from the carmel malt. nice aroma, balance, color, and body. good stuff all around! 7/11-change that not as hoppy as red rocket part...things have changed over the last few years. closer to a 4.3?"
