Green Flash Brewing Co. Hop Head Red

2015 April 7

It’s a red IPA! Woohoo! I don’t think I’ve had too many of these in my time – maybe one or two – and I do like the idea of them. The Hop Head Red comes from the Green Flash Brewing Co in San Diego. It has a bunch of suspended solids in it that after standing for a while sort of stratify, giving you the impression of a dense, flavourful beer. The nose is more malty than hoppy, and the taste is more hoppy than malty and I would rather have it around the other way – probably just my current mood though. The sweetness stays out of the way until the aftertaste and it’s fairly subtle. The Amarillo hops are plenty ‘there’ and as far as an IPA goes it hits the mark. Maaaaaybe a touch too carbonated. 7.0%

Sorry about the non photo…phone died.
