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.

A: super dark reddish brown, a little cloudy, finger and half worth of head
S: Amarillo hops are what come through most, caramel
T. Sweet with Amarillo hops, very balanced. Amarillo stands out but bot overly prevalent to where it is just a hop bomb. Malt is very sweet and carmel tasting
M: very nice
O: I love Amarillo hop flavor, this is a great intro beer into the flavor without being overly hoppy and in your face Amarillo

Hop Head Red pours a diarrhea brown color, with a nice large lacing tan head. There is a strong earthy aroma with some hop notes. The taste has a stronger malt flavor, with some notes of hops, very earthy notes. Full flavors good body. Overall its a good red ale, but its strongly hoppy and strongly malty, not sure what was going on .
