Green Flash Hop Head Red AleGreen Flash Hop Head Red Ale

Brewed by:
Green Flash Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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
