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.

Pours a red-brown color with a thick head that leaves lots of sticky lacing as it fades. It certainly looks like a typical red ale, but that is where the similarity ends. The brewer dry hops with Amarillo hops giving the beer a strong citrus aroma and flavor. A bit of pine hits those senses as well. The hop profile is significant but the beer is still balanced with enough malt sweetness to keep things in check. There is some lingering bitterness, and a slightly oily mouthfeel. At 6% ABV it’s a little high for a session beer, but still quite drinkable. I was somewhat reminded of Tröegs Nugget Nectar, another highly hopped American Red Ale. However, Nugget Nectar has a stronger malt backbone, whereas the Green Flash has a much stronger citrus profile. That stereotypical East Coast - West Coast difference perhaps?

Bottle poured into a tumbler..nice amber/red color with fluffy white head..aroma of hops, pine, citrus, florals..really crisp, hoppy...I’m not a real big amber ale fan but Green Flash is one of my favorite breweries and this ale is one of the reasons why.

Muddy red colour. Aroma and taste of hops; lack of the red malt vibe here sadly. Used to live this one, but muchprefer the founders red rye over this guy.

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin layer of light tan head. Aroma of floral hops and pine. Taste of malt and hops. Like a slight hoppy unsweet tea.

Good looking beer in the glass, creamy burnt amber color with off white thick head. Taste is hard to describe. Hints of citrus, caramel, pine, and malts. Starts off bitter on sip but finishes smooth. I will get this one again

Lovely beer, a sweet caramel maltiness pervades with slick citrusy hops in the finish. Easy to drink, flavorful as hell.

Malts, fruits, caramel and resin in the aroma. Amber with a off white head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice hoppy ale with a rich flavour.

berlinoise2go (586) - NORWAY - APR 5, 2014
Bottle (12 fl. oz.). Murky reddish amber colour. Half-inch off-white head, retains well, leaves an uneven film and a band of lacing. Aroma of fruity hops, resin, caramel, dust. Medium body, soft carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel. Taste is dusty-bitter with a nice fruity-resinous body, well-balanced. Dry finish.
