One of three Green Flash beers I purchased at Bier Cellar in recent weeks. Love the color and thick head on this one. Also leaves great lacing on the glass.
Certainly a bit darker than most IPAs but that is to be expected from a Red IPA. Aroma is middle of the road on this one, not overpowering but some hops, malts and a bit of fruitiness. Taste follows with plenty of hops and some sweetness to balance things out. Nothing too special but certainly enjoyable.
Pros: Well balanced
Alcohol Content: 7.0% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 70
Brewers Website: Green Flash
Brewers Description: Resinous hop characteristics emerge from an enormous hopping with Columbus, Nugget and Amarillo overtaking the rich caramel malt base. To add luscious hop flavors and enticingly floral hop aromas, we dry-hop the brew with bucket loads of Amarillo hops. Welcome to the world of Red IPA.
