A luscious beauty, Hop Head Red® exudes resinous hoppy qualities from Amarillo, Warrior and Nugget to overtake the full-bodied depths of a caramel malt base. Captivating and seductive floral aromas and alluring hop flavors are the result of dry hopping with mountains of Amarillo. The blissful union of Double India Pale and Red Ale make Hop Head Red an unforgettable obsession. Experience love at first sip. Every time.

12 0z bottle & on tap at the Yardhouse.Let me Explain.I had this beer at the Yardhouse about 3 weeks ago and I liked it so much I wanted to wait and drink it again before I wrote a review.Well I got to say that this is a great Hoppy red ale.At 8.1ABV it will get the job gone in more ways than one.Very Hoppy beer with a hint of flowers and citrus. I was listening to some Pink Floyd and drinking this and I`ve got to say this is a very good Red ale.Not quite as good as a Lagunitas Imperial red ale but still very good.Go buy you a 4 pack and you will see what i mean.Hoppy beers rock,Motley.

Pours dark amber with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and citrusy hops. Taste is resinous hops upfront that fade into some sweet caramel malt notes. Aftertaste is lingering bitter citrus hops. Palate is medium and somewhat sticky. Overall nice balance with some sweet maltiness playing well with the big hop punch.
