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.

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.

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!

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.

dchmela (2766) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2008
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.

#511 (Mel Ott) Take Arrogant Bastard and tone it down a couple notches and you have this. Maybe compare it with Rogue American Amber. Like with a number of strong red American ales these days, there’s the suggestion of rye.

raphael (954) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Piney woods in a grapefruit rain, resinant. Slightly cloudy amber red w/ lasting tan head. The resin & citrus don’t blend as well in the flavor, some smoked malt, almost balsamic vinegar hint, distant burnt sugar. Hoppy finish

12oz bottle. Ruby red - brown color with a big, fluffy, butter colored head. Resiny aroma of hops. Sticky without being overly sweet. Fresh cut grass, citrus, yada yada. Smells nice. Flavor is hoppy with a lingering bitter finish and a lackluster mouthfeel. Pretty good.

On tap at the LAX Four Points Sheraton. My nose hasn’t gotten anywhere close to the glass, and I can catch wafts of juicy hops and caramel malt. Smooth and actually pretty creamy in the mouth, nice foamy carbonation adds to a luxurious feel. Piney hops start biting a bit late in the finish, and it’s not as bitter as expected. Lightly sweet in the middle and tasting of fruitcake. The aroma is strong, but there’s not much going on with it, no preview of wonderful flavors beyond the basic hops and basic malts. Copper hazy in the glass with a stiff head of taupe foam. Great session beer.
