COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s 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.

madmitch76 (14744) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2010
14th July 2010. Bottle in BrewWharf. Clear dark brown beer. Short lived little white head. Rich dark toffee - slightly bitter - well balanced with some nice fresh hop. I say balanced but the malt does some out on top in this red. Finishes soft and dry with more dark toffee. Nice!

Bottle at Brickseller, Washington DC
Amarillo dry hopped
Cloudy red-amber color, creamy head. Nice aroma of American hops, sweet nuts, caramel and vanilla. Robust mouthfeel, with strong caramel flavor, sweet enough, and powerful hopping with some resins, and almost a cookie touch. Very good.
