Beer Wednesday – Hop Head Red

Happy Beer Wednesday! This week, I’m happy to bring you a review of Green Flash Brewery’s Hop Head Red Red IPA.

This tasty, tasty beer falls perfectly into my desire to only drink Summer beers until the temperature climbs, and it seems to be working, The high just last week was in the 80s, and I expect to see it get a bit higher each day.

The Hop Head Red had a really nice head, with some bright nose, and rich under layers. Pine? Strawberry? The usual suspects of citrus were present, but maybe more orange than grapefruit. The flavor was rich, but not overpoweringly hoppy, which was good, because I paired it with jambalaya for dinner.

The red IPA has a 7.0% ABV, and 70 IBUs makes it rich, but not too heavy, and it has good bite, but it has little to no harshness in it. Overall, as Ambers go, this one is really, really good. I’d give it a 4/5, if not a little bit better. . .

Someday, I’ll come up with a better rating system. . .
