4/5 rDev +1%
Served on tap at the Saucer into a snifter on 3/23/13. Pours a deep, solid reddish-amber like well polished cherry furnitures. The head is full bubbles of dark off white stacking about 3cm with incredible lacing. The smell is full of resinous hops and sweet cane sugar. There is vibrant tropical fruits and malty sweetness, pineapple core, and pine cone resin. Great smell overall. The taste is heavy of malt with very good hop backbone. The taste is a little hefty on the sweet overall, which just slightly calls detriment to the overall tast. The mouthfeel is very full, thick with oily hops. Overall, this is another beer that wins much on draft that it lacked in the bottle. It's a truly good beer overall, especially fresh.

Green Flash Brewing Co. - Green Flash Hop Head Red - Red IPA - 1pt 6fl oz bottle
Look - Pours like an unfiltered hazy dark reddish orange meal with a small soapy head that sits and takes a load off. Lacing abound.
Smell - Smells caramel, malty sweet with floral/resiny hop overtones.
Taste - Maltier than expected followed by smooth and red with a nice hop finish.
Mouthfeel - Smooth as butter with a hop kick, but fades rather sticky/oily. Decent but not great drinkability.
Overall - Not bad, good blend, worth a try. I can understand what they were going for here but not quite a bull's eye.

Green flash hop head red
Pours a deep orange red with a seemingly tobacco-stained white head
Its got a biscuity/malty front and raisiny overtones to go with the delicate hop earthiness from the nose.
The bubbles are now slow and precise with a thin layer being all that's left of that head which now ramps up the Guldin Draak tulip that i poured it in. What seems to be bubbles just float, but we can be sure this is sediment.
It strikes me as very balanced as far as its hop to malt profile.
The mouth feel is light to medium with the carbonation being mellow.
Overall This beer might also be classified as an exceptionally well hopped and dryish Irish Red. It is can be the litmus for future "Red IPAs"

12 oz bottl into a duvel tulip
pours a reddish brown with a 1/2 inch head.
right away you're hit with the citrus smell. tastes of grapefruit and the hops are very present. carbonation is present but not at all overpowering
haven't had a bad green flash beer yet, and this one certainly is good.
