An IPA a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
Hop Head Red [Red IPA] (Green Flash Brewery)
This is a not very good picture because it was very impromptu. As soon as I poured the beer I realized it was my last one and that I was supposed to be saving that bottle for this series. Oops!
Pours cloudy and red. They seem to bottle condition based on the fact that from a previous bottle, I didn’t pour the last quarter inch into the glass and it was very clear. Off white head with pockmarked lacing.
Grapefruit aroma from the Amarillo hops mingle with the caramel malt. Tastes like it smells. Caramel, grapefruit, subtle citrus. This isn’t a hop bomb but the bitterness and hop aroma/taste is definitely there. A very good beer from a very good brewery. Get it if you can.
