GREEN FLASH BREWING HOP HEAD RED IPA

Green Flash Brewing Hop Head Red IPA. This is my second visit of this American red IPA. It has a caramel malt base and is hopped with Columbus, Nugget and Amarillo. They labour the point on the label its “Amarillo Dry Hopped”.

It pours a dark reddy / amber and has a sudsy head that screams hop oils. It’s got a bready and earthy red ale malt flavour followed by a relatively strong citrus / stonefruit hop flavour.

Whilst the hop flavours are strong, the earthy flavour (or “dirt” as I prefer to call it) dominates. The Amarillo hops impart an orange and tobacco flavour that seems to take over.

 

There is some astringency possibly as a result of going overboard on the dry hopping.  I prefer the Green Flash’s West Coast IPA over this one.

 

7/10
