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.

On tap@ the Liarsí Club - Pours a deep amber color with a small off white head. Light lacing. Aroma was hops and toasted malt. Flavor had a nice hop bite up front, followed by lightly sweetened toasted caramel malt. Nice balanced. Medium body. A very nice, easy drinking beer. I like these Green Flash beers.

Tap poured amber color with nice off white head. Aroma was full of citrusy hops with sweet caramel malts. Taste was bitter with a good malt profile and slightly dry finish. More of a hopped up amber than a pale.

On tap at stone. Pours a dark amber with off-white head. Nice hoppy, bitter aroma with some sweet malty notes. Nice flavor of fruit, caramel, grapefruit, and resiny hops. A nice strong APA, very good.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Draft @ Liarís Club. A very dark amber almost brown in the glass with a creamy off-white head with yellow highlights. Some head was lasting and left thick lacing. Nice citrus hoppiness backed up with pine. The flavor follows much the same with a hoppy bitterness and a caramel background. Medium to full body with a mild bitterness throughout.

On tap at Stone. Murky reddish brown with almost no head. Good hoopy nose of citrus and pine. Bright light body palate. Strong hoppy pine taste.

Great balance between malt and hops. Really enjoyable pint at the Liarís Club on a Thursday afternoon! A good call if you want something big in flavor, but lighter in alcohol

On draught at OíBrienís. In the rather dim light of the pub, this appeared to be a dark copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma features rich caramel and toasty malts, cedar bark and plenty of fresh citrus hops. Flavor falls right in line with the aroma, with sweet malts and some bordering on roasty bitterness, bold yet balanced citrus and herbyhops make for a nice even drinking experience. Medium body and crispy carbonation. Another good beer from Green Flash.

Draft at Hamiltonís. Reddish amber with a nice head that left nice lacing. Lots of fruity aromas. Flavor was malty red with a nice hop finish. Pretty good stuff.

I had tis on draft at the "Beer & Boobies" fundraiser hosted by zug4abby, sick_girl282, vac & sick_boy282. Itís dark amber with a thick head. Itís got a very nice balance between hoppiness & maltiness with a lot of flavor & smoothness.

Pours with a deep amber body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. Itís slightly sweet with a great grapefruity and piney hop note and great malty undertones. medium to full bodied and smooth.
