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.

Bottle - Bought Aug 2012; BBE undated; Drank Oct 2012 - BCA; heavily sedimented, lots of floaties. Amber Red in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous hops and floral leafy hops. Fruity; grapefruit and orange citrus. Malty; rich sweet caramel malt base. Nice hop/fruit/malt balance. Heavily hopped. Moderately bitter; but not too bitter. Liked this a lot. Amber Ale or Red IPA? Nice Beer!

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2014
Hazy, dark amber to red body with a decent-sized, off-white head that laces the glass well. Strong, pleasant and quite unusual aroma. Thereís lots of malt here, but itís very gently roasted and itís not giving rise to anything darker than sweet caramel. Itís even more hoppy, with lots of seriously overripe tropical fruits, especially pineapple. There are also notes of grapefruit, overripe strawberries and hints of orange. Really, really interesting stuff! The flavour is also this amazing malt/hop mix, with caramel, burnt sugar, truckloads of overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit, citrus and pine, with orange in the back. Dangerously addictive and more-ish, I canít wait to have the next sip! Medium body, fairly dry texture and moderate carbonation. The most interesting beer this side of BIPA!
[35.5 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 month before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Cristobal37 (230) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Really interesting beer. Aroma much lighter than West Coast IPA and almost as if there were some rye or bread in it. This beer tastes fantastic. Smooth as hell and really well balanced. Best Green Flash brew Iíve had yet.

Bottle from Sonoma in Delavan. Pours a red amber with thick head. Nose is a pine hop with a typical amber ale metal edge....goes down well.

I must say I was skeptical about the high ratings an amber received but this is actually a really superb amber without wading too far into pale ale territory. Lots of citrus nose here with big hops and a good malty backbone fingered with a perfect tone of amber rust. Finishes with light bitterness. Tap at Churchkey.

tomekk1978 (272) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Barwa: czerwona / miedziana, mętna. Piana kremowa, początkowo dość obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, pozostająca na ściankach. Wysycenie niewielkie. Ideał. Aromat: cytrusowy (pomarańcze?), ożywczy, zdecydowanie przyjemny. Smak: słodowy, ale wytrawny z chmielową kontrą. Zbalansowany. Alkohol nie wyczuwalny. Kolejne piwo z Green Flash, ktůre zdecydowanie daje radę. Może nie jest wybitne, ale z pewnością bardzo dobre. Uważam, że warto sięgnąć po następne, bowiem każde jest co najmniej przyzwoite. Nawet cena w stosunku do jakości aż tak nie przeraża.
