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.

Today: Poured into tulip glass, the 2 finger head begins to build and the aromas are released, settles down into a creamy froth and lacing, cloudy dark reddish brown like a mahagony stain, very nice color, rich..., strong pungancy of pine, citrus and grass backed by some roasted malts, taste of bittered hops hit the tongue with a background of caramel toffee then the nice linger bittering finish, palate is smooth and tingly, but not harsh.... a nice quaffer.

Bottle. Amber/reddish pour with off-white foamy head. Diminishes into a slick of lace. Hops and spice on the nose. Hops dominate upfront, all bitterness in the initial taste then gives way for maltiness. Not balanced, but it does well not to be. Medium mouthfeel. Good beer, but not worth the $14.99 I paid for the six-pack. Better beer around for less.

Pours red amber with tall creamy head that lasts a long time. Piney, resin hop aroma detectable from a foot away. This one is amazing! Resin hops with a hugely bitter finish and a decent malt backbone -- one of my new favorites. Stupendous.

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.

deep ruby pour with a thin cream colored head. very nice hop notes along with brown sugar? very easy on the palate with a nice creamy flavor of malts that finishes with a slight hop bite.

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.
