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.

12 ounce bottle -> World market tulip glass

A - pours up a hazy reddish amber with a foamy one inch head that stays around for awhile and leaves behind lots and lots of spotty lacing.

S - beady smell with some citrus and pine.

T - pretty hop forward with the malts being a bit subservient. A grapefruit flavor is definitely there.

M - lots of carbonation, bit of an aftertaste

O - enjoyable amber ale, easily drinkable, if unspectacular.
