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.

On tap. I am surprised that this is an amber and not an IPA., because the hops are front and center in this brew. Fresh, grassy hops, with grapefruit and pine flavors, mostly dry and with a touch of sweat.

Nice red amber color with a small head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor is the same with a fantastic hop bite. Extremely dry finish. Excellent.

It has a great Amber color to it and nice off white head. It has an amazingly bitter smell. Spicy, hoppy,very inviting. The taste is wow! To say its bitter is an understatement.it has a spicy, bitter, and just ridiculously hoppy taste.

Pours a beautiful red with a fluffy tan head. I’d take a nap on it. Beautiful aromas coming from the Amarillo hops; also a whiff of caramel. Tastes magnificent. A burst of hops, some spicy sweetness, and some more hops. Very drinkable but some how packs a punch at 6%. Of note, more flavorful and lively on tap.

shadey (1900) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2008
12oz bottle. Fresh. Pours a deep amber with plenty of bubbles and a spotty head of off-white creamy lace. Aroma is a spicy hops and a full caramel backbone. I have to admit I really enjoy the juicy nature of Green Flash’s IPAs. This is more full flavored and rounded but I’m not sure I like it as much.

Beerdedone (2625) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Bottle. Pours a copper/amber color with a white head. Aroma of piny and citrus hops with a hint of caramel. Flavor is piny and floral hops with grapefruit, citrus, and a touch of caramel sweetness. Medium body with a dry hoppy finish.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Dark red with reddish tan head. Loads of pine and citrus in the aroma with some maple. Flavor is nice and piney with a smooth caramel backbone and some tart grapefruit. Pretty damn good.

AmEricanbrew (5847) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Clear copper/red with a light tan head. Big piney hop aroma with ganja bud and sweet caramel. Medium body. Great hoppy pine forest and floral hop flavors riding a rich , sweet caramel malty base. Another tasty, hopped up amber ale ala Nugget Nectar.

(bottle - 12 oz) Amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma is very piney and floral with lots of hops, sweetness, and some citrus notes. Flavor is hoppy at the beginning with a bitter and cloying middle and a bitter and dry finish. Some caramel throughout. Surprisingly run of the mill.

12 oz. bottle - dark amber with white head; nice haze to it; raw, bitter, band aid aromas; drinks very bitter too; lots of pine hops and bitterness basically trumps everything; pretty blah overall; i was expecting something more along the lines of the Troegs HopBack
