COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editors note: If you had the 8.1% abv version marketed since 2014 as a Double Red India Pale Ale, this is the wrong beer page. Please rate under Green Flash Hop Head Red Double IPA (2014 -). 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.

blankboy (7595) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with lots of sediment and an average to large size lasting foamy off-white head. Hmmm, all the other ratings say theirs is clear, I wonder if I got an old bottle? I thought this was a pretty new beer? Oh well, no date on the bottle so who knows. Nice aroma of sweet malt and a resiny hop medley (grassy, piney and citrusy) along with some grain and fruit. Flavour follows the aroma with sweet malt and resiny hops, nicely balanced, and with a long dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Carbonations just right for the style. Great stuff, easy to drink and no sign at all of this being past its due, Im glad I have more!

On tap at The Red in Santa Cruz. Poured into a nonic. Dark copper but not too dark to see that it’s perfectly clear. Light tan head leaves ample lacing. Aroma is on the hoppy side, with a rather herbal quality coming through more so than the typical grapefruit. Flavor is similar. Lots of dry leafy hops with a touch of citrus, and only a bare minimum malt profile. Lack of malt makes this beer thinnish.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Thanks to stefanje for this beer. Pours a very dark red tea with nice head that leaves some artistic lacing. Hop nose is very fresh and ripe...grapefruit and some honey. Flavor is pretty much and amber with a huge amount of hops...which is fine by me. Big, bitter and tasty. Finish is simply pithy flavors. Considering I like hops...I love this beer. Thanks stefan!

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2009 Bottle. Like the dscription says, possibly better thought of as a Red IPA. With that said, since I love hops, Id drink this "amber"over any other one that Ive tried so far. Aroma is intense, with strong hop resin...very inviting. Nice refreshing finish. I really enjoyed this one and will definitely return.

ketchepillar (1195) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 14, 2008
This is one of those "ambers" that just have a lot of hops and then have a bunch of caramel malts=Amber ale on crack. That being said, hops are tasty, this was tasty.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle from Kegs & Barels in Plano. Pours a hazy red amber with nice dark beige head. Aroma is of nice hoppy grapefruit. Has a great fresh hop flavor with caramel malts with a high hop bitter that is refreshing. Has medium heavy mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Over all a great IPA.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Pours a nice dark amber, tan head that lasts and laces up nice. Hops dominate the aroma and the palate with a hint of malt in the backround. Mellows a little as it warms. very good

for an amber ale, it’s awefully Ipa-ish! Which is a good thing. Deep dark orange-RED color. huge faomy light tan head that laces like a banshee. Mostly hops on the aroma though i picked up a little malt sweetness too. taste is lots of hops with good amounts of sweet malts poking through, really nice beer. Finish is grapefruity hoppiness with nice malts mixing in. Finish seems to last a while and transfer to mostly a bitter dry grapefruit! Great beer!
