COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flipside Red IPA is a rebuttal to the mild-mannered beers of summer. Tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors from the use of whole-cone Citra, Simcoe and Centennial hops are the perfect notes for this in-between season.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Copper with a large slowly fading taupe tauper. Aroma is a nice balance of citrus and floral hops with toffee and sweet bread underneath. Taste of toffee, bready malt, citrus and a mild dry and semi-bitter finale.

Clear amber color with lasting ivory head. Spicy, pine, ganja bud, dry bread aromas. Medium body with average co2. Nice pine, ganja, spicy hop flavors with a solid caramel base brew___tasty.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Draft at Proletariat - NYC. Solid Sierra Nevada offering. Doesn’t blow my socks off but I could drink this all day. Nice pine and ripe citrus character, some bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Well balanced finish, just enough resin to make your lips smack but not so much you wish the beer would calm down. Loved it.

Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Draft. Poured a deep coppery amber with red highlights, nice lasting head. Aroma of piney hops, light citrus, faint nuttiness. Flavor is the same - mostly pine hops and slightly nutty malts. Not bad, but just didn’t do much for me.

halfonit (1156) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at Battleship. Pours a deep amber color with a an off white head. Aroma is of hops, malts, citrus, and grain. Flavor is similar. Citrus hop with some ripe fruit and malts in the finish. Decent IPA here, but it seems pretty consistent with the beers that they but out. Nothing to WOW about it.

Capa (1969) - Manama, BAHRAIN - DEC 30, 2013
Deep amber with a tan head. Aroma is tropical and citrus hops, lightly sweet malts. Medium to full body. Flavor is full of citrus hops, tropical fruit, sweet brown sugar malt, mango. A nice drying bitter finish. Very nice. Made it to Bahrain three months after bottling and still tastes fine.

gkeh (185) - Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Dark red/amber pour. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and citrus hops. Taste is mild sweetness from the malts and a citrusy, bitter hop presence. Home run by Sierra Nevada!

BBOTMC. Pours red hazy with a huge beige head, aroma of orange, mango, tangerine, flavor is bitter and dry with some crisp pomelo tones and citrus, medium bodied, tasty

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 23, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a red-mahogany color with a very large, long lasting, off-white head. Hop dominated aroma is more herbal than flowery or fruity. Taste starts with a bit of tropical fruits and sweetness followed by some citrus and bitterness. Goes into some earthiness and herbal hoppiness. Finishes with a lingering bitterness and hop character. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

The description of this beer is interesting because the "flip-side" of summery beers is celebration. This beer is more the flip-side of SN’s usual offerings. It was overly strong on the hops but light on the alcohol content. I wouldn’t ask for my money back because I finished the 12pk, but it’s usually easier to drink a beer like this when it’s boozier.
