Green Flash Hop Head Red Reviewed

The Hop Head Red comes from Green Flash Brewing of San Diego CA. BeerAdvocate lists its style as an amber ale but according to the label and the ABV it reads more like a big American India Pale Ale. The HHR is Amarillo dry hopped and logs in at 7% ABV and 70 IBUs.

Some tasting notes.
Appearance: Copper colored with cream colored head.
Aroma: not a big hoppy nose as you might expect.
Flavor: big spicey hop with dry finish.
Mouthfeel: medium body, good effervescence.
After-taste: Amarillo dry hops sticks with you all the way down and then for some time after that.

Final word, I am not familar with Green Flash Brewing only having a few samples as part of a flight. This beer is a very nice IPA, with good spice and hop flavor. I had it with a spicey spaghetti with red sauce and it complimented the meal very well.

Definately recommended.
