Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe coffee. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy as hell.

12 oz bottle. BB 13/Oct/2015. From thebeershop-online.com.
Clear mahogany red color with a small light tan head. Hops, sweetness, dry wood, mild bitterness and caramel sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is dark hops, fruitiness, mild berries, mild bitterness, malt and some alcohol. Next time fresh.

Hazelnut pour with thin head and moderate fine carbonation. Rich malty flavor and texture. Hops come gently in but build to a pleasant melange of citrus and spice. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mahogany pour with a dark tan head. Aroma is caramel malt and fruity hops. Taste is a caramel malt base surrounded or encircled by hop flavor. Fruity, a little resinous. Caramel malt in aftertaste still melding with hops. So tasty. Nice lacing.

De nuevo Green Flash "Hop Head Red" una Imperial Red India Pale Ale estilo poco empleado mas parecido a la American Brown Ale pero con algo de mayor intensidad en el lúpulo. Visualmente una cerveza bastante filtrada con una corona de espuma mediana ligeramente teñida hacia el marfil, de color cobrizo el liquido a marrón claro. Se puede detectar dulzor de maltas caramelo, algo especiada a clavo, un pequeño toque a tostado y un gran olor imperante a cítricos, guayaba y pináceos secos. Tiene un cuerpo Mediano que ya alcanza a impregnar las paredes del recipiente donde se toma. El sabor abre con un dulzor bastante rico, nunca excesivo, acompañado de un toque tostado muy ligero, ya después se planta el amargor con los toques a cítricos algo resinoso no imperante, sabor a pasas y cascara de toronja, sierra de nuevo el amargor causando una sensación de sequedad que se hace mas marcado con la nota tostada que se vuelve a percibir. Los 8.1 de esta imperial son imperceptibles debido al equilibrio del sabor y la tarea de resaltar el lúpulo, esta marca gringa es la Reyna de las IPA’s

Poured from the bottle, part of a variety pack with 2 others. Looks red/brown with a nice white head and lacing. There is plenty of hop flavor and some sweet that comes behind it, spicy, boozy, malty, and mouth watering, not to mention strong, all the food groups represented here.
