Green Flash Hop Head Red IPA pours to a reddish- orange color with a nose that is floral and a little fruity with some biscuit notes. The head of foam looks nice and solid and it holds its own for a while, leaving some decent lacing as you drink.
This IPA offers a complex taste with flavors of caramel malt, toasted malt, bread, hop resins, fruit, and some pine. Down a few more sips and you can taste some toffee and a little bit of pepper in the finish. The taste of alcohol is also evident and the medium to full body is richer than the typical beer, including most other American IPA.
Green Flash makes some big, hoppy brews and this product is no exception. It offers a bigger, fuller flavor than most other beers and its memorable qualities extend from the malty beginnings to the hop- accented finish. The taste may be a little too hoppy for some and I admit that I don’t consider this an every- day type of brew. It is best consumed when the need for the taste of hops hits hard and won’t let go.
I like this beer, I really do. But considering the high price, packaging with only four bottles, and heavier taste, I will likely stick with it only for special occasions.

A: deep amber brown with red-orange highlights; few fingers of tan head slimmed to a persistent foam cap
S: floral orange citrus, subtler resin and caramel malt; some suggestions of pith and pine
T: sweet caramel malts push through the citrus and flower of the hops, and some spicy and herbal elements appear
M: medium-weight and fuzzy smooth, mild chewiness, rustic and hearty
O: a nice ale, combining a red with an IPA and using Amarillo, Warrior and Nugget hops. Possibly more attractive to fans of red/amber ales than to fans of pale ales.
