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 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.

DYCSoccer17 (3383) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 16, 2008
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!

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2008
A deliciously hopped beer. I really like Amarillo hops. Lots of citrus in the taste with a resin hoppy finish. No sharpness, a very smooth drinkin’ IPA, I mean Amber Ale.

I really love this beer. If I could get this on a regular basis it would constantly be in my fridge, but that isn’t the case, so I only get it whilst traveling. The beer pour copper / bronze with a soapy light tan head. The aroma has lots of spruce and citric hops and lightly bready caramel malt that is very nice. This has both full malt and hearty hops. Medium prickly resiny body with perfectly sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with earthy, piny and grapefruit hops then some dry smooth caramel malt. The finish has a nice blen of heavily toasted malt and bold hoppiness. Thumbs way up for this truly great beer.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Pours dark mahogany with a soft off-white head. Good balance between the malts and hops. Warm caramel flavors finished off with a grapefruit hop finish. Crisp and bitter, with a bit of resiny hops in the finish.

malrubius (1901) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 14, 2008
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Hazy red with nice tan head and lace. Mild fresh hop and earthy aroma. Mild toasted caramel and fruit with medium bitter lingering finish. Medium body with slight wateriness. Medium carbo. A nice session beer but nothing special. Lacking the malt flavor I expected.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle from State Line in Elkton, MD. Pours a deep amber red with an off white, retentive head. Nice lacing. Caramel and citrusy nice. Caramel malt base, with some husky grain countered by a big grapefruit and pine bitterness. Hoppy finish is dry, earthy, with a lingering tea like bitterness. Amber? RRRRRIGHT. Maybe to San Diego standards. No complaints though.

12 oz bottle poured a copper brown. Grassy and earthy hop aroma. Fluffy head. Nice sweetness to match the hops. A bit smokey. Nice amber.
