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.

pineypower (2516) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nice, almost reddish/orange color with a two finger off white head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee, citrus hops and some light pine. Taste is much the same, a solid balance of sweet caramelly malts and pine/citrus hops, nice different touch to an IPA.

Fantomasus (204) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2013
It’s good... Pours amber w/ a decent head that dissipates to film. Aromas: caramel, cereal, nuts, spruce, and dough. Taste is pleasant although off balance (weighted to the bitter). Finish is more lingering bitter. It’s good enough to drink again but would not seek it out... meh.

drjay44 (2647) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, cream colored, head, with some lacing, over a clear dark amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is light cereal, hints toffee/caramel from the toasted and crystal malts, citrus peel, pine from the hops, minimal esters.....taste is light toasted malts, with hints of toffee sweetness, strong pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops finishing with a lingering bitterness......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, carbonation low with a clean acid finish. This is a very typical iteration of an American IPA, with strong American hops dominating in both aroma and flavor. As such, while good, it is almost trite. BJCP 8/3/16/4/7

EithCubes (4939) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle. Nose bursting with hops and it’s all three in equally strong measure: Citra, Simcoe, Centennial. There is a strong green note reminiscent of a homebrewer’s dry hopping bag pulled out of a still-boozy fermenter. Pours dark amber with a sudsy tan beige/head. Soapy feel on the medium body, medium bitterness and dries out considerably, light papery scratchiness/astringency from the Simcoe, juicy hop oils, low-level caramel and light earthenware fumbling around below the citrus. The biggest issue here is the recipe, unfortunately -- it’s a mashed mess. Would muuuuch prefer a Tumbler.

Butters (3775) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Clear brown pour with reddish highlights and fair khaki head. You can definitely pick out the citra which plays rather nicely with the simcoe but not quite as well with the underlying maltiness. I appreciated the different spin on the style, but it’s nothing I would seek out again.

Reynolds314 (2334) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Sierra Nevada continues to crush it with their regular offerings. Just great rich maltyness balanced with bright sharp citrus and background pineyness.

swanmann (604) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 30, 2013
from the bottle: dark and clear red/amber with ample, sticky tan head resting on top; potent aromas of pine and caramel; nice mellow, but solid, semi-sweet caramel backbone with dry, bitter finish. Delicious, not as intense as the flagship pale ale, in my opinion.

BroSpud (1698) - , Massachusetts, USA - SEP 30, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours red with a nice white head that lingers. Easy drinking IPA with nice malty flavors to go along with a decent hoppiness. Another solid brew from SN.
