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.

South Philly Taproom. Pours a deep red amber with a small resilient tan head. Nose is a good range of citrus and piney hops. Nice balance for style. Doesn’t really stand as a beer I could have by itself and be completely satisfied.

12oz bottle served in a stem glass. Pours lightly hazed deep garnet topped by a dense off-white head. Big Amarillo nose of grapefruit and pine. Deep bitterness balanced by sweet caramel flavors, some pine and grapefruit as well. I agree with the rep IPA statement before me. And while it is good it needs something else to keep me coming back.

Bottle courtesy of Naka. Pours red with light khaki head, one finger. Nose is all hops, citrus and pine. Taste is moderate bitter with a solid hop flavor, pine, citrus and mild resin with nice malt backbone, caramel with a mild chocolate flavor. Bitter lingers well into the after with some dank hoppiness. Very tasty "amber ale". More of a red IPA.

12 oz bottle from premier gourmet. pours deep red with a perfect everasting tan head. perfect amber ale appearance. hoppy aromas with a perfectly constructed malt profile. flavours are equally good with neither hops or malts outshining the other. very well balanced and sessionable. the only better amber ive ever had is Grand River Plowmans Ale and this only lacks in complexity. very solid ale.

Pours light mahogany into a shaker. Fluffy off-white head pancakes as it slowly recedes. Sweet caramel, citrus and resin aromas. Beautifully balanced with upfront sweet caramel and a lasting grapefruit finish.

Arayaga2 (2130) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Brownish red with a fast-fading tan head. Aroma is fantastic, multi-note hoppiness which includes floral, citrus and vegetal aspects. Taste is also quite hoppy, with pithy citrus bitterness and a slight biscuity finish. Very clean on the palate, except for a steady, low-level lingering bitterness. Solid stuff, and very drinkable $2/12oz

Pours a dark opaque amber red color with a little beige head that is gone after a few seconds. The aroma is sweet juicy grapefruit and rinds with just a small hint of pine. The flavor is very bitter. Flowers, tea, and dank nuggs. There is a little bit of brown sugar in this, but the star is completely the bitter. The body is medium to light. Leaves a strong bitter on the tongue. If you are a fan of hops, this is awesome. If you crave a little more balance, look elsewhere.

Tasted somewhere along my trip through the States.
Dark amber colored brew. Fruity aroma. Fruity, hoppy flavor with crispy full hopbitterness. Nice malts. This is a very good amber.

Smells of citrus hops. Pours a deep copper color with a lasting, small off-white head. Tastes of juicy, grapefruit hops, and caramel malt. Very nice balance, very drinkable.

12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma is sticky, caramelly, musty maltiness with a bit of spicy hop character. Lightly sweet. I really enjoy the smell of this red ale. Transparent amber body with a slight ruddy hue present. Creamy, decent off-white/light tan head with some kick ass lacing. Start is lightly sweet, before it becomes nice and rich. Plenty of roasted and toasted malts come through. A little caramel is also there with some woodiness. Finishes a bit dry, spicy, and earthy. Not overly hoppy. Very well balanced a amazingly drinkable. Great stuff!
