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.

12oz brown bottle with pry-off cap with no freshness date. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a clear, maroon amber with 2 fingers of head and good lacing

Smell: Citrus hops and pine needles

Taste: A lot of citrus and pine notes up front that bitters in the middle then rounds out with malt with a balanced finish

Mouthfeel: Creamy up front but not too much with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice red ale with a lot of hop flavor upfront. There isn't as much malt as I would of expected but it is still well balanced. This beer just downright looks perfect. A beautiful color with crystal clarity. I really need to do a side-by-side with Founders Red Rye since this is pretty close for a red IPA.
