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.

Source: 12 oz bottle from Bruisin Ales.
Glass: Shaker.
Appearance: Poured a clear dark red color with a one finger off white head.
Aroma: Resin and caramel malt.
Flavor: Caramel malt base with a strong resin and citrus finish.
Palate: Medium body with solid carbonation.
Overall: Excellent Amber ale. Would tend to classify this more towards an IPA, but a solid beer nonetheless.

Dorwart (2443) - 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.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUN 26, 2009
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

[2205-20090601] 12floz bottle. Malty tea hops aroma with sweet caramel tree sap. Murky, dark amber brown body with a long-lasting foamy light yellow head. Bitter tree sap caramel malt flavour. Bitter full body. Great bitter bite.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2009
(Bottled) Very hazy darkish red-amber with lots of small, floating particles, and a smallish, firm and lacy head. Very flowery-perfumy aroma with strawberry fruitiness and caramely malt. Strongly aromatic-hoppy, caramely-malty flavor with lots of fruitiness, but also slight ashy-acidic notes. The hop profile reminds me of NBE, which is a good thing :). Medium body, medium carbonation. The caramely-fruity malt and flowery-perfumy hops mix pretty well, with the only failure being the slight ashiness. I guess this would be great fresh from the tap.

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.

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

Nose is hops: Pineapple, flowers, and perfume. Hint of cookie in there also. Flavor is sharply bitter, simple flavor of grassy, perfumed floral hops. Bit of bread/cookie in the finish. I’m somewhat disappointed by the one-layer flavor this has; sharply and lastingly bitter, with none of the assorted richness/layers of flavor I associate with extra-hopped beers. Texture is watery with a slight oily-after feel.
