COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very few Green Flash brews are available In this part of the wrong coast so when I saw a new one next to their excellent IPA I was excited. When I noticed it was an amber my excitement began to wane because Im not a fan of the style but this brewery deserved a fair review so with somewhat diminished expectations I brought some home. So much for diminished expectations! This is a very well crafted beer that really raises the bar for Ambers - practically legitimizes the style all by itself. Pours a rich chestnut with ruby highlites beneath tight and long lasting light tan head. Aroma of grapefruit, hops and toasted malt. Decidedly IPA-like hoppy flavor profile but with notes of toasted caramel and vanilla bean on top. Rich texture and dry as stone and bitter finish. I hope this one will be around for a while.

CelticBrew (748) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Pours ruby red from 12 oz bottle, foamy head comes forth. Aroma of the typical hopped up amber, hops, some caramel, metallic tin. Flavour was of hop crystal surprise, some pine resins, malts and slight grassy tones come through. Lacing is nice, mouth feel superb. What a delightful surprise. Rather dry in the end but acceptable. Pretty good beer. Would love to try on tap.

Green Christmas tree aroma is off the charts! Delightfully clear reddish amber in color with a thick head and oozing lace. Lots of caramel sweetness and crystal malts to balance the green hoppiness. Somewhat creamy. Resinous finish. Its like the beer gods are smiling on me.

Taverner (1076) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAY 29, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2008 Absolutely the best "Amber Ale" Ive ever had. It pours copper red with a very frothy, soapy head. Its very dry with a piney resinous flavor. The aroma is very grassy and full of hops.

Draft. Clear amber color with great lacing. Aroma was of burnt metalic hops. The flavor was of piney grapefruit and that weird burnt hop taste. Chemical finish.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2008 Re-rate, 10/08: Another fine experience on draft at SL. Holding the numbers, although the caramel came out a little stronger than desired this time around. Original rating: Rating this one as an IPA. Pour was deep copper, full of well-suspended sediment that remained almost motionless after the pour, really quite nice with the huge off-white colored head on top. The aroma was rich citrus hops, light floral notes, full caramel. The flavor followed the aroma, great malt depth, oranges and grapefruits completing the highlight flavors, finishing with a huge strong bitter hop finish, some resinous and even herbal/spicey notes too. A great brew, Green Flash!

12 oz bottle. Clear, dark red with a beige head. Big, sweet malt nose with tons of floral and citrus hop. Excellent lace rings, medium, somewhat creamy body. Lots of citrus hop flavor, sweet caramel and bread. Excellent!

12oz - Deep reddish brown, light tan creamy head. Soft pineapple and leafy black tea aromas rest on light citric caramel tones. Moderate grapefruit tea and earthy flavors round to a soft sweet caramel ending. Medium bodied and smooth, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. A near perfect hopped up session brew. Well done....
