Pick of the Weekend: Firkin Friday

This Friday October 28 Cafe D’Alsace and BeerSomm kick off the first Firkin Friday of the season, a series of nights that celebrate cask beer. This week’s firkin is Green Flash Hop Head Red. Here is how they described the beer on their website:

Resinous hop characteristics emerge from an enormous hopping with Columbus, Nugget and Amarillo overtaking the rich caramel malt base. To add luscious
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.
ALC. BY VOL. 7.0% | IBUS: 70

The hop forward American beer from San Diego will be followed up next week by Mahrs Bräu “Bock-Bier” Heller from Bamberg Germany. German beers on cask are hard to find so it will be worth checking this out.
