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.

A very well balance IPA, hops are nicely balance. Hints of coffee in the aroma, nice body with a slightly bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Bottles and draught from debut onwards, most recently 2010.
Copper-amber body is clear and topped by a medium-sized, beige head with moderate to moderately low retention.
Specialty malts and fruity hops are joined by a touch of pine and lots of pepper. Just enough caramel-like sweetness balances the beer gently and the alcohol is well-concealed. This used to be an amazing beer at the start of the brewery, as did most of their other beers. I assume it went downhill and is pretty mediocre now. Lots of fresh, juicy, fruity hops. Almost NE IPA juice levels, though with a stronger pine/grapefruit bitterness. Crunchy/hard specialty malts and light woodiness, with light yeastiness lingering and ample, engaging carbonation.

PhillyCraft (6301) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Backlog, bottle pours a amber golden with 2 finger white head. Smell and taste are ashy and bitter hops, sticky malt, pine resin and dry wood. Medium bodied. I could drink one of these but would get tired of it after that.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2016
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.

ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2015
From NOTES. A: pine up front with a superb combination of citrus and hops in the background. Some light maltiness does come out slightly. A: Pours a murky amber red with a nice 1finger offwhite head. Fair amount of lacing and retention. T: Follows the nose with a bit of the fruit, but dominated by biting hops. Not the balance I was hoping for. P: Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation.

dafozz69 (9) - Sanford, Maine, USA - JUL 24, 2015 does not count
Pours a amber red with white head that lingers to lace. Aroma of floral and caramel. Moderate mouth feel and carb. Well balanced malt and hop profile. Finishes crisp with slight bitter after taste. Not a lot of complexity but a nice drinking IPA.

jamaty (1989) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Jntese una belga tipo dubbel o similar y una IPA americana y el resultado es esto. Si lo haces bien, claro. Color marrn muy bonito. Espuma poco marcada. Aroma de IPA, claramente lupulado, resinoso, frutal. En boca estamos ante una cerveza diferente. Inicialmente se aprecia claramente una rica base acaramelada, tostada, dulce. Pero progresivamente se va envolviendo en una explosin lupulada que te lleva a pensar que ests tomando una IPA americana. Y de gran calidad. Porque realmente mezcla con efectividad dos mundos. Aunque gana por goleada el de IPA. Muy amarga, floral, frutal. Gran experimento nuevo estilo?

Duchammer (186) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle poured read with a white head The aroma had herbal and floral notes with light Carmel notes. Taste had caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it wasnt a hop blast! The palate is invigorating. I didn’t find it to be too complex, but it’s still decent.

tricksta_p (3749) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2015
Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus, fruits, resin, hops. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. Very dry. Wish I could have tasted a fresher sample, but even aged it was damn fine, even though it has probably lost its hoppy edge.

The aroma has hops that are herbal and floral. As I sip, I also taste caramel malt. The predominant taste is bitter, but it isnt overwhelming. The palate is invigorating. I didnt find it to be too complex, but its still good.
