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.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Bottle served in my NB worthy glass: Coppery hue with a nice frothy head and good lacing. The aroma has notes of moderate piney and resiny hops, some grassiness, caramel and crystal malt, hint of grapefruit and pepper. The taste is more towards the sweeter side with the malts very much a player but the bitterness and citric elements are still found. The best part of the palate s towards the finish with a hop spice snap that has part pepper and part rye character. The finish is a tad chalky and astringent. The mouth feel is actually quite reserved, not as biting nor lively as most hop forward brews. All in all more that acceptable but could be a bit cleaner and sharper on the palate and finish.... the it would actually be a Hop Head beer.

The Dan Journal #251. Tasted 2/17/09. 12oz bottle. Hazy with a reddish brown hue. Bubbled off-white head. Bright hoppy aromas. Piney estery hop notes. Rather full bodied with a bright palate. Very fresh. Bready malt character with a rye astringency. Zesty, hoppy finish. The finish lingers slightly. Solid brew!

Bottle. Pours orange-amber, clear, and with a creamed corn coloration. Aroma is of “wet” pine, leaves, and grapefruit. Flavor is beautifully juicy, a nice red fruit-caramel bite, followed with a firm bitterness. A bit of toasted malt as well, along with some dry chocolate in the finish. Palate is smooth throughout. Delicious, if you ask me.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Malty citrus nose, some resin. Soapy head, reddish amber brown color. Carmel sweetness with lime pine needle bitter balance. Medium carbonation, medium mouth, biting bitter finish that transitions into a nice maltiness. Great caramel malty beer with big hops

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2009
a definite piny, grassy flavor in a great red-amber color with nice malty lining. Most definitely a Red IPA! a beige head with immediate tastes of citric almost light caramelly tatstes

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Deep red-brown pour with a bubbly, thick tan head on top. Nice lacing. Overall a great looking pour. Malty aroma with caramel, molasses, and nuts. Surprisingly strong with all the hops, though the piny hops do shine through. Thick malt and grain flavor with nutty molasses notes. Strong bitter hop finish. Very nice.

Aroma: Resin and caramel malt.
Flavor: Caramel malt base with a strong resin and citrus finish.
Palate: Medium body with solid carbonation.

Dorwart (2519) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Decent sized tan head of fine bubbles. Light carbonation. Nicely balanced aroma between the malts and hops presence. Some floral hops, boiled vegetables and some sweet malts. Color is a crimson brown with a good bit of chunky floaters in there. Big hops presence in the flavor with lots of flowers, qrapefruit pith, roasted grains and some sticky malts. Bittterness hits you up front and late swallow and lingers for quite a while. A pretty good brew if you are a hop head but a little bit more than I like.
