COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 at home. Pours ruby, sweet toffee and caramel aroma, taste is dry, sticky toffee, bitter, burnt, maybe a bit sweet.

The waiter said this was an ipa before I ordered and I didnít bother to look it up. Definitely not a an IPA, but a full flavored amber colored beer with a fair amount of hops and dry malt, giving a bread flavor that cuts down on the bitterness.

12 oz bottle. Nice reddish brown pour. Great malty body with a bitter caramel finish. Aftertaste is smooth with great mouth feel. Another winner from green flash!

larsga (6146) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2014
Medium beige head. Hazy brownish red body with visible particles. Malty earthy meaty aroma with spicy roasty citric notes. Dryish spicy earthy malty taste with plasticky herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry spicy earthy raisiny caramelly malts aftertaste with plasticky herbal notes. Itís quite ... it does have character, even if the character does not entirely agree with me. Itís nice, drinkable, and full of flavour. The plastic/cardamom flavour I could live without, though. (0.355l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

From color, to aroma, to taste, and head. Great across the board. Simply a fantastic red

Homer321 (1809) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle. Strong dank nose. No malt. Deep dark red with almost no head. Taste is initially all bitterness a d is quite aggressive. Not well balanced and not well done. Very pithy and overly bitter.
