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.

Pours hazy amber, red tint and off white head that dissipates quickly. Very floral/citrusy nose with caramel malts. Grassy/pine grapefruit up front, resinous pine throughout. Medium heavy body, a little spicy taste fades to sticky hop resin in the aftertaste.

A decent brew, but in my opinion, more of an IPA than a red ale.
