Green Flash Hop Head Red Ale
Ratebeer 3.73 98th percentile
Beer Advocate A-
I have never met a Green Flash that I didn't like; no, make that love. The dry hopping of Amarillo gives a big citrus, sweet and slightly fruity nose. This brew wastes no time and instantly delivers the hop punch: astringent, floral, resins, citrus and tangy. Normally all these hops flavour mix together and get lost. Not with this brew; they all line up and present themselves in an orderly fashion. The malts are a true caramel but barely peek through the hop smack. For those keeping score there were 45IBU's.
The alcohol warmth nicely supported the long lingering floral hops. It was not an astringent lingering but it was a tongue coater.
Alcohol Content +1 6.4%
Definitely hop head approved. It was very much like the Three Beavers, but slightly better.
Ingame Enhancement +1
This is going for a perfect 10, so why stand in its way. Lets see... I drank this glorious beer after saving a kitten from a burning building while it was snowing.
This is a hophead delight. The big hop nose and tastes are off the charts, yet not intimidating. If you care about the malts, the caramel goodness will surely please. I look forward to getting this one again.
