COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

The pour reveals a clear amber color with a medium tan head. Very good aroma of piney, citrusy and resinous hops. Solid flavor of piney, citrusy and resinous hops with some malt and a bitter finish. The body is light with a creamy texture and soft to medium carbonation. Very nice, one of the best amber ales Iíve had so far.

RedXIII (127) - Powell, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Excellent red. Appearance is perfect for the style - deep, cloudy amber with solid head and lacing. Aroma is strong, but mostly malt and caramel. Flavor is awesome. Itís hoppy, malty, sweet caramel to start and a bitter hop finish. Good stuff.

Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown With a large white head and some floaties. Aroma is fresh citrusy hops and a little sweet. Flavor is the same with a mellow bitterness and a load of caramel. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. Not very complex, but very tasty.

CapFlu (4364) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2009
(Bottle) Purchased at Spinnakers Spirit Merchant in James Bay, Victoria, BC. Pours a lasting almond-coloured head atop a deep amber body. Nose is wonderful - I love Amarillo hops. The sweetness and spruce background on this beer has made this my all-round favourite available non-BC beer this year. Remarkable stuff. 9/4/8/4/16

Changed (342) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Re-rate. 12oz bottle. Pours murky amber, white head, no much of it, some lacing. Aroma is malt, caramel, some hops that arenít of the citrus variety? Taste is a malt blast, then a hoppy bitterness of the finish. Nicely complex. Moderate carbonation, long-lasting mouthfeel. A lot better than when I first tried this.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2009
12oz bought at Julioís. Powerfully aromatic ale with its explosive dry-hop aroma, loaded with resin and tangerine. I canít say itís particularly attractive with its numerous beige sediments floating around the dull light brown body. Its head is initially uite large though, but again fades away within minutes. Still, the nose catches back the poor first impression with its apt inclusion of caramelly more than toasty malt. Plenty of hop aromas in mouth also while the bitterness remains limited, the latter being especially due to the maltís heavy consistence for the style, in the Californian mold. Lasting spruce resin finish does not completely annihilates the cerealic base. Successful in its genre. While relatively straightforward, a full-flavoured and most drinkable ale.

On tap at the Neighborhood in SD. Another good, but undistinquished effort from Green Flash. Malt dominates, whereís the hops? Call it Malt Head Red Light and I would be more impressed.

12oz bottle. Excellent beer, definitely more on the IPA side of things. Great hop presence with a very dark reddish brown color. Godd lingering after taste.
