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.

Marvelous brew. Liked a lot. Pours clear pink wine reddish with a bit beige frothy, thick top. Aroma fruity, citrusy, pine, sourish amber malty and resiny finishing. But not very intense. Flavor - amber malty, caramel and hops gentle but intense kiss. Beautiful. Taste- medium sweet, tiny sour and average bitter. Palate- medium body, soft carbonation, syrupy texture, long sweetish, light bitter finish. Enjoyed a lot.

Appearance: dark golden brown with two finger soapy head. Aroma: light grassy hop. Not a whole lot coming from the nose. Taste: some malt, some bitter with a nice balance but not much that stands out. Mouthfeel: medium bodied with so e spice on the back. Overall: not bad but doesn't stand out above the rest. A nice drink but forgettable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rich red ale with savory, resinous hops and slightly sweet, very light caramel backing. Long finish, dry and balanced.

I like how the page describes this as an amber ale and the bottle as a red IPA. Pours a light brown. Has the malty flavor but a hop bitterness at the end. Easy to drink. Not bad tasting, For the price, better beers out there. This is good out of the bottle or poured in a glass. Glad I tried it, but most likely wonít buy again as I like other cheaper craft beers better.

TXBadger (1345) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Hops on the front end, citrus and pine; follows onto the palate where there is a little floral note to it. Finishes with nice piney grass.

The waiter said this was an ipa before I ordered and I didnít bother to look it up. Definitely not a an IPA, but a full flavored amber colored beer with a fair amount of hops and dry malt, giving a bread flavor that cuts down on the bitterness.

12 oz bottle. Nice reddish brown pour. Great malty body with a bitter caramel finish. Aftertaste is smooth with great mouth feel. Another winner from green flash!

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2014
Medium beige head. Hazy brownish red body with visible particles. Malty earthy meaty aroma with spicy roasty citric notes. Dryish spicy earthy malty taste with plasticky herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry spicy earthy raisiny caramelly malts aftertaste with plasticky herbal notes. Itís quite ... it does have character, even if the character does not entirely agree with me. Itís nice, drinkable, and full of flavour. The plastic/cardamom flavour I could live without, though. (0.355l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)
