I think the hoppy red ales are getting me more into malts than I have been previously. The Hop Head Red is my newest encounter with this style, and is one of the better ones I've tried.
It pours a more red color than simply an amber. The head is a thick cream color with a little pinkish tint and a lot of lacing around the glass. The smell is a lot of citrus, with a bit of the roasted malt in the background.
Most of the hoppy red ales I've had usually hit you first with the malt, then the hops come into play. This one seems to be the opposite. The citrus hops come in, with a lot of grapefruit, and it is followed up very lightly by the malt. I'd say the malt in this red is a lot less pronounced than many in this style. It's a good, hoppy, beer that leaves the grapefruit taste in your mouth for a while.
