Red Means Green Flash

27 Nov

During our San Diego beercation, stopping at Green Flash was a must. Known for their hop additions – in the boil early, late and in the secondary and of course dry – Green Flash beers are all about hops and their Hop Head Red Ale is appropriately named.

If you’re a fan of Amarillo hops this one is for you! The in-your-face spice that these hops bring out in a beer is on overload with this one while the Caramel malt fights hard to be noticed, it remains in the background through much of your pint. Be prepared for loads of aroma and to be fooled that this one only has 45 IBUs. Oh, we should warn you that it’s 6.4% ABV, so sit, sip and enjoy.
