Editorís 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. Aroma of rich caramel malt, bitter hops. Flavor quite bitterly hoppy, taking over from the malt, but still worked well together and left some slight fruity notes in the background. Not a whole lot of unique flavor notes, but nice, dry, and thirst-quenching.

joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours dark cloudy amber/brown with floaters (not sure if its suppose to have that...) with 2 cm foamy off white head. Aroma of rye and some hops. Initial flavors fruit and rye. Flavor ends more hoppy. Aftertaste is bitter and metalic. Lots of lacing, some carbonation, light body, and couldnít appreciate the alcohol presence. Overall kinda disappointing, but still a solid rye, too much build up.

Pours a brilliant red with thin white head. Sweet malt and an assult of hops on the nose. Taste is sweet with honey and hints of tart fruit. Finish is full of hops. Very nice!

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Pretty coppery red color beneath a light tan head. Toasty cereal aroma with plenty of resinous hops accompanied by hints of apricot. Grassy hop bitterness accompanied by light cereal malts. Lingering hops, but there is drinkability here and it never seems bracing.

draft at coles- really enjoyable brew. Resinous pot like hop aroma and flavor. Nicely balanced with the malt. Some would say this one is a bit bracing, but not me. I liked it a lot, and immediately bought a six pack for home consumption.

Wow what a great amber. If I was rating this to style it would be a 5. Best amber Iíve had. Aroma was good. Strong grassy hops and earth. Pour was a perfect deep dark amber with a 2 finger off white head. The color this thing had was amazing. The taste was very strong and bitter. Grassy and earthy hops with a cola aftertaste. Decent carbonation rounds it out but the full on hop assault in this beer is the center of attention. More hoppy than most IPAs and even some IIPAs. Great.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville. Red pour, similar to cranberry juice. Sweet citrus hop aroma. Hoppy citrus taste with a touch of malt.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2008
12 oz bottle. Lightly hazy amber in color. Aroma- citrus and floral hops, with some molasses and toasted malt in the back. Taste is moderately hoppy with citrus, mainly grapefruit, some orange, and some floral hop character. Nicely balanced with a molasses/caramel sweetness with a moderate amount of toasted malt character. Finishes light to moderately bitter. Pretty nice, and sessionable.

Nephilium (1326) - Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Nice heavy hop aroma. Poured a dark reddish-amber, with a thin cap of tan head, and visible sediment in the glass. Bitter taste, very bitter. Touch of caramel malts, and just bitter. The bitterness seems a bit over the top for the style, but Iím a hop head, and I donít think any but tha hop heads will pick this beer up.

Well, this certainly is a hop head beer- very fresh resinous hop aroma, covers up most of the sweet malt. First sip is an onslaught of resiny bitterness, tastes like chewing on a fresh hop cone. I would rate this higher if I could taste anything else, but I am not someone who likes to be bludgeoned by hops- I seek a bit more subtlety and balance- That being said, it isnít exactly offensive- brewed very well, just make sure it is your thing.
