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.

This is one of those "ambers" that just have a lot of hops and then have a bunch of caramel malts=Amber ale on crack. That being said, hops are tasty, this was tasty.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle from Kegs & Barels in Plano. Pours a hazy red amber with nice dark beige head. Aroma is of nice hoppy grapefruit. Has a great fresh hop flavor with caramel malts with a high hop bitter that is refreshing. Has medium heavy mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Over all a great IPA.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Pours a nice dark amber, tan head that lasts and laces up nice. Hops dominate the aroma and the palate with a hint of malt in the backround. Mellows a little as it warms. very good

for an amber ale, it’s awefully Ipa-ish! Which is a good thing. Deep dark orange-RED color. huge faomy light tan head that laces like a banshee. Mostly hops on the aroma though i picked up a little malt sweetness too. taste is lots of hops with good amounts of sweet malts poking through, really nice beer. Finish is grapefruity hoppiness with nice malts mixing in. Finish seems to last a while and transfer to mostly a bitter dry grapefruit! Great beer!

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2008 Bottle from Co-op in Davis, CA. I had a little taste of this one, but definitely want to try it again. It had the hints of grapefruit, typical of GF. Only, it was fuller and maltier, which is consistent with an Amber. Very good amber ale!

Lowe1983 (1377) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Pours a copper color with a tan head. Aroma is strong of citrus and pine hops with some caramel malts in the back. Flavor is sweet at first with the caramel malts and finishes bitter from the pine and citrus hops. Flavor lingers for awhile.

guzzler67 (1547) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Cloudy, reddish brown appearance with a large, lasting, tan head and good lacing. Pungent pine/citrus hop aroma. Assertively hopped, earthy taste; pine and citrus again, modestly balanced with caramel malts. Medium-to-full bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel; bitter, lingering finish. If, in fact, this is an amber ale, then it is my favorite to date. But it leaves more of an impression as a solid IPA.

Goodgrief (1843) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Beer pours a beautiful amber copper color with lots of little yeasties suspended in solution. The aroma was pine and the flavor was that of caramel malts, really sweet but the perfect amount of piney and resinous hops to balance this out. A lot going on in this one. Really nice.
