Welcome to Minnesota Green Flash and thank you! This thing you call Hop Head Red..maybe beyond my ability to understand. What in the dank dangerous deep hop assault is going on here? I thought I knew what the Red IPA category was all about! Yeah Excuse Me Redefinition! Seriously. I’m a hop head to the nth degree and I’m thinking I brought a dull knife to a gun fight. ..Hold on my ass is kicked right now..I’ll get back to this review ..real soon..for now I’ll just say Dang girl why you gotta do me like that?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: pine up front with a superb combination of citrus and hops in the background. Some light maltiness does come out slightly.
A: Pours a murky amber red with a nice 1finger offwhite head. Fair amount of lacing and retention.
T: Follows the nose with a bit of the fruit, but dominated by biting hops. Not the balance I was hoping for.
P: Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a amber red with white head that lingers to lace. Aroma of floral and caramel. Moderate mouth feel and carb. Well balanced malt and hop profile. Finishes crisp with slight bitter after taste. Not a lot of complexity but a nice drinking IPA.

Júntese una belga tipo dubbel o similar y una IPA americana y el resultado es esto. Si lo haces bien, claro. Color marrón muy bonito. Espuma poco marcada. Aroma de IPA, claramente lupulado, resinoso, frutal. En boca estamos ante una cerveza diferente. Inicialmente se aprecia claramente una rica base acaramelada, tostada, dulce. Pero progresivamente se va envolviendo en una explosión lupulada que te lleva a pensar que estás tomando una IPA americana. Y de gran calidad. Porque realmente mezcla con efectividad dos mundos. Aunque gana por goleada el de IPA. Muy amarga, floral, frutal. Gran experimento żnuevo estilo?

Bottle poured read with a white head
The aroma had herbal and floral notes with light Carmel notes. Taste had caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it wasnt a hop blast! The palate is invigorating. I didn’t find it to be too complex, but it’s still decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus, fruits, resin, hops. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. Very dry. Wish I could have tasted a fresher sample, but even aged it was damn fine, even though it has probably lost its hoppy edge.

The aroma has hops that are herbal and floral. As I sip, I also taste caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it isn’t overwhelming. The palate is invigorating. I didn’t find it to be too complex, but it’s still good.

Great beer. Very original as this beer has an iced tea flavor to it. Strange yet intriguing. Would try again.

I feel like I’ve typed "I love Green Flash" hundreds of times. It’s like they’ve tapped into my conscious and they’ve brewed it exactly how I like it. Balance is the key word with this beer and it expertly showcases both malts and hops in this to a high degree. Caramel and citrus hops fight for the right to be called the dominant aroma, but neither are. The powerful malts and robust hops mingle so incredibly well together, it’s incredible. Insanely easy to drink the whole bottle.
