Notes/Commercial Description:
In 2011 the recipe was altered to bump the IBU’s from 55 to 70; ABV also increased from 6.4% to 7.0%. In 2014 the ABV increased to 8.1%.

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.

First red ale!

I bought what appears to be a vintage 22oz bottle of the Hop Head Red at a Total Wine in Charlotte, NC. It was labeled as 7.0% APV instead of 8.1% as it should. No Freshness date found.

Poured into a snifter, it is reddish brown in color with a tan long lasting head. Smell is mostly floral. Had a nice lingering pine and caramel flavor along with a little citrus tang. Overall a very enjoyable beer!
