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

Pours a dark red with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is floral with some fruity hops, lightly resiny and generally not overly aromatic, but nice... as it warms it kicks out a little bit more pine aroma.

The Flavor is pretty much like a double IPA, blindfolded I would be able to tell that this was a dark red beer. The bitterness level is moderate to high, but not unpleasant in any way, the hops are piney with a touch of citrus rind and some nice grapefruit. This isn’t overly boozy or sweet at all. Fairly low on malt character but what’s there is dry and almost dusty. Fishes nicely dry.

Red ale with a dirty tan head. Stinky danky aroma. What is it with these new mosaic hops? The taste is very sweet and bitter and floral from all those danky hops. Some would say citrusy taste and piny finish. Some. A bad ass ale, I’m just not used ti that aroma, but its getting there.

Draught in a flight. Pours an amber color with some reddish tinges to it. Nose is pretty hop forward with some nice floral elements. Taste is bitter and smooth, with just a hint of the rye coming through. Very drinkable.

DrSilverworm (6478) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Pint on tap at Fries. Moderately spicy hop, some tropical fruity hop aroma. Some chocolate. Mostly clear dark red color. Minimal off-white head. Couple loose dots of lace. A bit maltier than I expected. A lot of sweet, dark fruit flavors to it. Moderate / stronger sweet taste, light spicy flavor, little bitter. Bigger body. Lighter carbonation. Much sweeter, maltier than expected, lots of caramel malt.

Reynolds314 (2334) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Nice lightly malted amber DIPA. Heavy citrus characteristics in a crisp and smooth finish. Really doesnt taste like 8.5% at all but quite good with the mosaic hops shining.

Pours red-amber with a medium light tan head. Aroma is rye and hops. Taste is a beautiful blend of rye, pine, tangerine, and a little malt. Well balanced & smooth with a clean bitter finish.
