Bottled. Ambery brown colour with a mediumsized white shining head,which leaves some lace. Aroma is resin, spruce, some fruity and mild floral notes along with some grains,alcohol as well as toffee. Flavour is slight alcohol with sweet malts, some slight spicy and fruity notes. Surprisingly easy to drink, and makes you long for more.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe coffee. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy as hell.

Hazelnut pour with thin head and moderate fine carbonation. Rich malty flavor and texture. Hops come gently in but build to a pleasant melange of citrus and spice. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mahogany pour with a dark tan head. Aroma is caramel malt and fruity hops. Taste is a caramel malt base surrounded or encircled by hop flavor. Fruity, a little resinous. Caramel malt in aftertaste still melding with hops. So tasty. Nice lacing.

De nuevo Green Flash "Hop Head Red" una Imperial Red India Pale Ale estilo poco empleado mas parecido a la American Brown Ale pero con algo de mayor intensidad en el lpulo. Visualmente una cerveza bastante filtrada con una corona de espuma mediana ligeramente teida hacia el marfil, de color cobrizo el liquido a marrn claro. Se puede detectar dulzor de maltas caramelo, algo especiada a clavo, un pequeo toque a tostado y un gran olor imperante a ctricos, guayaba y pinceos secos. Tiene un cuerpo Mediano que ya alcanza a impregnar las paredes del recipiente donde se toma. El sabor abre con un dulzor bastante rico, nunca excesivo, acompaado de un toque tostado muy ligero, ya despus se planta el amargor con los toques a ctricos algo resinoso no imperante, sabor a pasas y cascara de toronja, sierra de nuevo el amargor causando una sensacin de sequedad que se hace mas marcado con la nota tostada que se vuelve a percibir. Los 8.1 de esta imperial son imperceptibles debido al equilibrio del sabor y la tarea de resaltar el lpulo, esta marca gringa es la Reyna de las IPAs
