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.

Had this on tap at Ramsi's. Color was a dark, deep reddish, brown. The taste was unique, plenty of hops and malt, great smokiness too. Very rich mouthfeel. Soft head. Really liked this one, good early spring beer.

This beer was a treat! I thought it was hoppy and sweet.. But not a malt bomb sweet.. More of a Caramel or raisin sweet! I'll be buying more.

A good red ale, but not as crisp and hoppy as expected.

Great reddish amber. Big frothy head. Big citrus smell with a dash of pungency. Big bitter bite of citrus rind and pine. Lots of pine. This is great. I'd get it again.

Beautiful red body and a sudsy sticky off-white head.

I like how the dry hop is mentioned and it isn't that pungent.
Caramel malt, piney and grapefruit.

Medium bodied and bittered.
