3.9/5 rDev -1.5%
12 oz. bottle, with best before date 11/08/2014 printed on the label. This is somehow my first review of a beer from Green Flash Brewing Co., as I haven't had any of their beers in quite some time.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a nice amber color; appears a dark reddish orange in the glass with about a finger of creamy khaki tan head. Leaves behind some thin spotty lacing. Looks pretty good. 4
S - The smell is fairly neutral, but pleasant enough. Mostly creamy caramel / amber malt forward. Lightly floral & herbal, but I'm not pulling out a lot of distinctive hop qualities from this one aside from that. 3.5
T - Taste on the other hand is very nice - creamy caramel / toffee malts, herbal tea leaves, and resinous pine. Fairly simple in it's approach, but I'd say it hits it's mark. 4
M - The feel is smooth and creamy. Only mildly bitter and resinous on the finish. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. 4.
Overall, a nice take on the red IPA from Green Flash, but it doesn't venture into any new or exciting territory. A solid example of the style, and one I would surely go back to again.
Green Flash Hop Head Red -----4/5.

4/5 rDev +1%
A: pours a deep red with a finger of dense light tan head that is slow to fade and leaves good lacing
S: smells of pine oil, citrus, and caramel
T: taste is citrus, pine, caramel, and toasted malt while the swallow is oily pine resin with some citrus with some tropical fruit
M: medium on the palate with light and soft carbonation. this beer finishes on the refreshing side with oily hop goodness coating the mouth
O: I don't mean to call a brewery out for this but it seems like they took West Coast IPA(phenomenal beer btw) and added some specialty malts with the same hop bill. Either way it's really good if you like your American Ambers on the hoppy side
