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 at Green Flash Brewery. One of the better beers Green Flash has to offer. Deep amber poor with light tan head. Excellent aroma. Very well balances brew.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. J suggested. Deep amber color, transparent with a nice head display. Hop resin is finely packed into the aroma with some malt and caramel. Lighter finish compared to the big boy reds, nice and crisp. Hoppiness stains last for a good while on the tongue. A good choice.

Draft at Mammoth Blues and Brews. Toasty malt with earthy hop aroma. Color is a tannish red. Flavor is nice hoppy citrus with some light roasty malts. A nice beer.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 On tap@the brewery: Deep mahogany-red color with a small off-white head. Aroma is rich and citrus hoppy. Flavor starts with a rich burnt caramel followed by a good dose of hops and a lingering dry grapefruit rind finish. Medium bodied and slick with lively carbonation. APA? Iíll put this up aginst "The" Arrogant Bastard any day! Well done Chuck.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - JUL 28, 2007
UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 On tap at the brewery. Taster. Interesting red-amber with a strong hoppy aroma (cascade I think) on first pour, but fades as I drink. Small-medium bubbles that last. Nice. Fresh green hops coats your mouth and lingers there. Lotís of flavor and aroma, but low bitterness. Tried again. Same rating.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUL 14, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2008 Draft at Stone Brewery. Aroma of caramel malt and pine/citrus hops. Tasted more like a red ale or amber ale with aggressive hopping. Pretty good for the style. Re-rate, 8/11/08; bottle. Nice red-hinted brown color with some off-white head. Nice aroma of sweet caramel, some biscuit malt and citrus. Flavor is the same, some earthy bitterness, slightly resinous. Pretty good amber ale.

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2007
On tap at Stone; poured a reddish amber with white head. Aroma of caramel and some citrus. Wasnít sure what style it was at a time; good for an APA. Flavor was about the same as the aroma, with a dry finish.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2007
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.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JUN 11, 2007
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.
