Hop Head Red – The Girl U Want

I’m a fan of redheads… and red IPAs too. So for this pairing, I suggest Hop Head Red, The Girl U Want!

The Beer

Green Flash Brewing – Hop Head Red

Red India Pale Ale – 7% ABV – 70 IBU

hop flavors and enticingly floral hop aromas, we dry-hop the brew with bucket loads of Amarillo hops. Welcome to the world of Red IPA.

The Music

Devo – Girl U Want – (ukulele version)

Try them together and see if you agree.

Cheers to craft beer!
