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. Not an amber ale at all. This tastes all rye pa. Gets mild the more you drink it. Pretty well balanced.

Solid malty and hop flavor. Good balance. A little dry. Good but doesnít quite fit my hop profile preference. Would still drink this one anytime.

On first glance and smell its more Red IPA (as advertised) than amber (Ratebeerís diktat off-kilter again!). Aroma is sweet-caramel malt, floral with a hint of orange (hops have subsided). Smell is a beautiful and enticing blend. Palate is consistent and the medium body carries throughout. Taste is more-sweet malt, some pine and a hint of grapefruit, orange. Thereís a rising herbal note that pervades the palate long after swallowing. This is a very good Red IPA. If it was fresh I am sure it would be outstanding.

Pouring a deep amber with a fluffy off white head, this red IPA shoes citrus notes and an earthy taste. Not a big fan, but I think I killed my taste buds with a trip to the Holgate Brewhouse yesterday.

kapusil (711) - HUNGARY - JUN 17, 2014
0.355l bottle. Hazy reddish dark orange body, off-white head. Huge toast and caramel notes in the aroma escorted with roasted malts and citrusy hops. Taste of caramel, citrusy, piny hops and some roastyness. The finish is really bitter. You canít tell itís 7% ABV. Very flavorful and easy to drink. Awesome beer.

Mild aroma, amber wth yellow cap. IPA bitterness mixed with roasted caramel and some sourness in good proportion.

Foffern (1383) - BodÝ, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle at home. The colour is cloudy, deep reddish brown with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma of berries, sweet malt, biscuit, dried fruit, harpix, fruity hop cones and some caramel. More grassy hops and harpix in the flavour, and salt licorice, grass, leather, some ammonia and sweet berries in the background. A little dry in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium to heavy bitterness that lasts. A rich ale, but feels a bit unbalanced with a all the hops.

zenkis (639) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUN 9, 2014
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.
