Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: sleazo on 03-06-2007

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.

Deeply hoppy, complexed by the lightly carameled barley. I've had beer with a higher abu's not taste as hoppy as this beaut. Hoops are not incredibly citric or piney. It's a perfect balance in the bitterness profile.

Pours a lovely orange red with a good off white head. Big hop nose. Lots of floral notes with a faint fir note as well. Big hop bitterness from the very beginning. Lives up to every one of the 70 IBU's. A hint of caramel from the malt but not a lot. Finishes bitter and I agree with a previous reviewer's comment of an "iron-like" finish.
