COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bigger, bolder, and hoppier is what you get in Green Flash’s Imperial Red Rye IPA...how unusual! This is quite possibly the most amount of flavor that can be packed into a glass of red ale. Columbus hops set the stage for the newly available Mosaic hops (released in 2013) to shine through the rich crystal malt base and a touch of rye malt adds a spicy dryness to accentuate the hop character further

emacgee (3981) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Pours a seemingly rich and viscous reddish copper with just one finger of lacing tan head. Very hoppy aroma, nondescript but bright and green for sure. Some dank notes and citrus rind with some spicy notes. Intense flavor upfront, very sharp and firm bitterness.

gmellison (411) - Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
On tap at choice city. Pours a clear amber with great off white head. Aroma is caramel, some hops, earthiness, toast. Flavor is hoppy, but a big sweet malty character, finishing with a bitter, spicy rye flavor. Full bodied, and hides its booze quite well

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
In short: A richly malted (lots of caramel and rye) and generously hopped (piney and citrusy) big red ale. Good beer.
How: Tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill, Burlington VT.
The look: Clear dark red body topped by a persistent small beige head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose has some fresh rye and a good hop presence that is piney citrusy herbal. In mouth the beer offers a nourishing body and a good carbonation, pleasant mouthfeel. Taste doesn’t let down. Plenty of crusty rye bread, succulent caramel, berries jam, toasted residual sugars, plenty of sandy piney and citrusy hops. Medium sweetness sensation and a bitterness of medium intensity. Nothing surprising here, it delivers pretty much what I was expecting from a respected brewery making Double IPA called Imperial Red Rye. Another good hoppy beer from California, one of the 49 states not known for its famous chainsaw massacre.

burg326 (3576) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
On tap at the Brass Tap, poured a light amber red color with aromas of tropical fruits, some pine and a touch of berries. Flavors follow suit, a nice beer overall.

M82 (269) - Kansas, USA - OCT 27, 2013
On tap at Barley’s, a vibrant ruby red body supports a fading off-white head revealing webbed lacing all around, this one is loaded with tropical fruit and medium pine balanced by big red berry and jam characteristics, taking the intensity right up to the horizon of overdone, but holding on to maintain a bright, bold, pleasing experience

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap at Skallywags in August (I’m way behind on entering ratings). Pours ruby red maroon color. Tan head with green tint. Pine and citrus nose. Caramel malt, bitter finish. Reminds me a lot of Founders Red’s Rye. Very decent.

zgaier (1332) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2013
On tap at World of Beer UCF. Pours a red brown with a beige head and sweet tropical fruit aroma. Taste is bittersweet, lots of grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits, and hops with a dry, bitter finish. Nice brew

On tap at World of Beer, UCF, pours a deep red with a nice head. Nose is all tropical citrus, deep and pleasant. Taste is citrusy, with deep resin and pine...and a good amount of bitterness. The finish is bitter sweet, with a long bitter ending.
