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.

Bottle via trade with blankboy - thanks, Paul! Rating #2300. Dark amber-brown with a medium off-white head. Fantastic hop-forward aroma - lots of citrus and spruce - with nutty and mildly roasty malt in behind. Flavour follows closely on the aroma - very well-hopped, but balanced as well. Full bodied. A really enjoyable beer, and a nice choice for a minor milestone.

12oz bottle, pours a reddish brown, smells like an IPA, tastes like an IPA, but supremely balanced, only problem with this one, and its minor is the mouthfeel, quite thick and syrupy i felt.. but this is a pretty tasty treat.

Copper color. Smell of hops, malt, flowers, rye, caramel and pine. Tastes just like Founders Red Rye. Taste of hops, malt, flowers, rye, caramel and pine. Love the bitterness.

Nice, deep clear red color with a frothy tan head. Sweet caramel malt and citrus and mango hop aroma. Very hoppy flavor with a clean,lightly sweet, malt backbone and a perfect bitter finish. Good stuff.

Pour is a deep amber with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Pleasant grassy hop balanced by a sweet, biscuit-y malt. This is really good.

I feel let down. It looks good, it smells good and the first part of the taste is good but then finished with a metallic lingering aftertaste that I can’t forgive.

Woah, this is right up my alley. Just found another daily drinker. Love that it’s not that strong either. 6% is just right. An Amber with a tilt towards the hoppy side of the fence. Great beer.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Deep amber with a foamy, thick 1.5" tan head. Balanced hop aroma with a strong floral presence. Aroma is also of strong caramel malt with a hoppy, spicy accent. Sediment in suspension is clearly visible in the glass. Full, delicious, balanced hop flavor that is heavy and very bitter. The caramel malt is an undertone. Smooth, light and creamy texture. So much character, you almost can’t handle it, but then you handle it. Consistency is medium-thick, and satisfying. Clean, bitter finish. These hopped up American red ales are the new IPAs. God blessed Texas and Amarillo hops. This could unseat your other favorite.
