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

NikkTwist (1642) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Draft at Monks. Deep burnt orange pour with a large tan head. Rich and boozy. Full syrupy palate. Brandied cherries. Pomegranate. Clear candy toys. Big earthy, resin hop flavors. Liquorice root. Molasses. Truffles. Black pepper. Turpentine. Darkly sweet but also a lot of lingering bitter. Bit harsh, but nice to find such strong dark red fruit notes in something so hoppy.

swoopjones (5921) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Draft at blue monk, deeper copper pour. Full mouthfeel. Big bitterness, citrusy hops. Balanced but all about the hops. Enough malts to save your palate. Very nice

VRH (47) - Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours a rich bronze colour with nice beige head that fades relatively quickly. Aroma is an immediate blast of fresh crisp celery, dank pine, grass, & hints of onion. Flavours follow the nose with some creamy sweet malt mingling around the delicious bitter citrus zest, finishing with lots of white pepper and hints of stale bread. Mouthfeel is not as full as expected. The remarkably distinctive hop profile makes this a very enjoyable brew.
