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.

Pours with a large, off-white foamy head and a hazy amber brown body. Head has good retention. Aroma of light citrus hops, some caramel and light toasted barely. Taste is lightly citrus hops with a ton of caramel and toffee/amber malts. Fizzy mouthfeel, a bit watery.

Sampled at Bevmo. Pours dark red/amber with ample snow white head. Aroma of significant, but not overwhelming American hops. Taste is of nice hop complexity with some nice caramelly undertones. Pretty good.

This is not nearly as hoppy as i was expecting... I was expecting something more along the Troegs Nugget Nectar line with a bit more malt backing... While this is excellent in its own right, it is not quite what i was expecting...

12 oz bottle, via cloudskipper. Pours a dark reddish amber with a large bubbled beige head that left a ton of lacing. Nice bright citrusy hops with a little bit of a resiny accent. Lots of caramel maltiness here too. Biting bitterness hits you right away and never lets go. The maltiness emerges mid swallow with some caramel and crystal malt. Pretty full bodied with a fairly thick texture and a slight resiny stickiness on the finish. Nice soft fizzy carbonation. A nice hoppy red, I almost always dig these.

12 oz. bottle at Zeno’s, Penn State. Poured deep red with off-white head. Malty with hoppy, bitter finish. Great balance.

17thfloor (2434) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Pours a dark reddish amber with a small beige froth. Earthy aroma, dusty, light pine and a touch of peppercorn. Flavor is quite earthy, off-dry, medium bitterness, touch of caramel, pine needles and a bit of brown sugar. Medium bodied, with a big fluffy mouthful, lightly syrupy. Not the hop-bomb I was expecting.

12oz bottle. Ruby red with amber undertones and a frothy head. Great aroma. Tons of pine with a nice caramel note. Very flavorful. Pine and caramel malts are plentiful. Medium body with a dry finish. I’d drink this any day.

(draught) deep amber with off white head. Strong aroma of pine hops. Flavor is pine hops, good malt backbone.

Bottle. Deep caramel color, creamy off-white head. Aroma of hops, pine, cedar. Strong bitter flavor, some sourness, very much like an IPA. Secondary sweetness, but aftertaste definitely a woody bitterness. Fills the mouth. Some lacing. Maltiness greatly increases as beer warms.

12oz bottle pours clear amber with a tan foam surface looking like the surface of the moon. The aroma has brown ale type notes only much bolder. I get tasty roasty and nutty notes mixed with caramelized malts. In the background are mild citrus, earthy, pine and a pinch of spicy hop qualities. The taste is bigger than the nose hinted at with an initial rush of pine hop bitterness, roasty malts and growing hazel nuttiness. I start to get sweet crystal malts and mild citrus hops rising up around the midway point. It ends with lingering juicy nectar like nuttiness laced with pine hop bitterness, wow. This is good.
