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.

Foxbush (1437) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 The beer poured a deep red in color with small bubbles for the head. The hops were nicely evident and balenced with the malt. It was pleasure to drink. I need to learn how Simcoe hops compare to cascade. I improved my scores from 2008. This is an excellent IPA.. The dry hopping makes a huge difference. Your sense of smell and taste can have a field day. Medium body with average carbonation and nice lacing down the glass.
