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.

Really one of the better ambers out there but I have to say still not the same as my Seattle Fav Mac & Jacks. Pours chunky amber with a giant head. that turns rocky. Aroma is piny hops. Flavor is slightly bitter, caramel sweetness and piny finish. Nice combo of IPA with an amber. Very good

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle. Pours deep brown, viscus, with a thick creme colored head that laces on fade. Impressive hop aroma that chokes out any hint of malt. Medium body, with a strong hop bite that carries through to the finish. Piny resin is the distinguishing hop flavor. Very dry finish.

Interesting take on a red ale. Crisp malt base, caramel, with nicely balanced hops. Not too bitter, but good.

Lots of malt and hops. Caramel, citrus/pine resingy thick and slightly sticky. Like a solid west coast IPA but withthe malt instead of hops tipping the balance.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
From tap at Solana Beach. Pours clear and golden amber to brown with a lacing light tan head. Aroma is mild caramel malty with a light hops note on top. Flavour is classic dense hops fruity flavoured and with a thick caramel malt base. Nicely balanced.

Wow! This Amber Ale is my favorite! Iv’e tried a few amber ales but none with enough hops to balance the maltiness out. This great beer pours a beautiful, slightly hazy copper color with a tan fluffy head that sticks around till the fat lady sings. GREAT lacing. The head gives off an aroma of great citrusy Amarillo hops, (which I love). Also nice caramel / toffee malt aroma. The flavor is hoppy and malty. Much resin and pine flavor. A little earthy too. And oh so smooth on my palate. With a nice lingering bitterness. Wow! This is so goooood. Thank you Green Flash Brew for this hoppy amber brew. The Lord bless the hop harvest!

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle. The pour was a vibrant copper with lots of red and some brown in it. Somewhat sticky lacing rings down the glass after an off-white head sits atop the beer for a bit. The aroma was lots of citrus and pine hops with some sweet malt cutting through. The flavor was fairly well balanced with the malty sweetness keeping the hops in check. The mouthfeel was nice and the finish succinct. A nice IPA.

Bottle: Pours copper with a creamy tan head. Aroma, earthy notes, citrus, caramel. Flavor, earthy pale malts, some citrus, and a metallic finish.

12 oz bottle courtesy Durhambeer. Reddish amber pour with a thick off white head. Very floral citrus hop aroma. Hoppy resinous bitter taste with a nice malty balance. Finishes with just a hint of bitterness. Really nice.
