Green Flash Brewing Co.
California, United States

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 oz custom bottle with cool raised logo in the glass. no date

cloudy red in color, with fluffy white head, good retention. aroma is definitely hop dominated. citrus & pine.

taste is also hop forward, but not overly so. tastes like a hopped up amber. medium body, higher carbonation.

overall, a solid beer.

I had out of a bottle at the Burger Shoppe in Downtown Manhattan.
A. It's color is a very nice dark red. It is hazy with a good tan head and lots of lacing. Some bubbles.
S. Very nice Bold, nutty hop scent.
T. There is a very crisp oak taste. It's very clean. Some nice malt mixed with hops. Well blended. Mild sweetness.
M. There's an interesting caramel aftertaste.
O. This is probably the best Red Ale I've ever had.
