Pours darkish reddish coppery. Nice little foamy head. Great smell! Pine and maybe some malt. Usually don't love red ales but this is an exception. Maybe because it also has some ipa taste in there. You can taste the alcohol and hops. Outstanding beer. Try it if you get the chance.
Wife's Review: "Looks like tea, doesn't smell like tea. Pretty good."

12oz bottle. Pours dark tawny with a glorious creamy foam head that's seemingly everlasting with it's sticky lacing. Fruity, resiny, piney, malty nose. Creamy and viscous. Big hop bite of citrus rind, with herbal flavors, and a dry grassy bitterness. A bit astringent, but not overwhelming. Malty, caramel, overripe orange, a bit jammy, with a biscuity malt finish that lingers with resiny, pine, and herbal flavors that are locked into an oiliness on the palate. A bit of booziness on the breath, and especially as the beer warms.
Quite the hop bomb and kick to the palate.

Poured a very attractive dark reddish copper color with a 2F head in a Spiegalgau glass with lacing.
I could smell the aroma when opening the bottle: melon, citrus, vanilla, and pine.
The mouth feel is pleasantly carbonated.
The aroma transitions well to the taste: stronger pine and citrus.
The finish is a clean hoppy bitterness.
Overall, another excellent beer from Green Flash.

12 oz. bottle, with best before date 11/08/2014 printed on the label. This is somehow my first review of a beer from Green Flash Brewing Co., as I haven't had any of their beers in quite some time.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a nice amber color; appears a dark reddish orange in the glass with about a finger of creamy khaki tan head. Leaves behind some thin spotty lacing. Looks pretty good. 4
S - The smell is fairly neutral, but pleasant enough. Mostly creamy caramel / amber malt forward. Lightly floral & herbal, but I'm not pulling out a lot of distinctive hop qualities from this one aside from that. 3.5
T - Taste on the other hand is very nice - creamy caramel / toffee malts, herbal tea leaves, and resinous pine. Fairly simple in it's approach, but I'd say it hits it's mark. 4
M - The feel is smooth and creamy. Only mildly bitter and resinous on the finish. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. 4.
Overall, a nice take on the red IPA from Green Flash, but it doesn't venture into any new or exciting territory. A solid example of the style, and one I would surely go back to again.
