Hop Head Red is what Green Flash Brewing Co. of San Diego, Ca calls Red IPA. The head is light and fluffy, and the scent is deceptively sweet, with pine and some caramel. I say deceptively, because the flavor is massively bitter, heavy with pine resin in the middle, and some citrus in the finish. This is definitely has a bit more richness and depth than their standard IPA which lends nicely to the red ale character, but I’d have liked it better if they’d toned down the bite a bit.
I give it a 3.2 out of 5.
