Green Flash Hop Head Red

Green Flash Hop Head Red

This Red Ale is brewed out of San Diego County CA at the Green Flash Brewery, and it has a 6.4% ABV. They also stated on the bottle that it is dry hopped with Amarillo hops.

This beer pours out a nice dark amber color with a nice off white head that laces on the glass. The aroma is rather inviting as I found some sweet caramel malts, as well as some piney hops. When tasting this Red Ale I found the sweet caramel malt to shine through first before having a slightly bitter dry hoppy finish while carrying a great balance.

I found this beer to be very nice and would recommend it. It is full of flavor and really the only knock I would have on it would be the bitter finish. I think that it could be too much for a beginning beer drinker.

Cheers!
