On tap at the Oregon Brewers Festival. A very nice red, which often aren’t my favorite. Nice hops though!

Sample @ the brewery. Pours a gorgeous caramel/red color with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is pine hops with detectable caramel and malt as well. Taste is largely malt and caramel sweetness with a heavy bite of hops at the end of the beer. Well done, very well done.

OBF ’08 I truly heart Green Flash Brewing, always great. It is very nice red with a great hop profile.

Deep red in color with a creme color mid-size head. Piney aroma is stiff in the nose. Initial taste is very enjoyable with a creamy flavor of hops and carmelized sugar. Slow hop filled finish

The red beer pours the rich caramel color of a nice port with a creamy off white head. The nose is a mix of light alcohol and hops. The taste is hops, burnt sugar and malts. The finish is nice and somewhat drawn out.

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.
