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.

Seems predominantly earthy and piney - surprising since it notes the citrus characteristics on the bottle. Well balanced, but I wanted this to be more aggressive in terms of hop presence, and more like the label indicated.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Deep amber/red body with a large off-white head. Big aroma of pine, citrus, floral hops, toasted grain and hints of fruit, especially pineapple and grapefruit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/slick texture, lively carbonation. Note of vitamin B in the finish. Taste of citrus, pine and resin, but thankfully the resin is not dominant. Nice IPA.

Beermack (684) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Copper pour, thin white head. Lots of tropical sherbet notes on the nose - plenty of sweet orange - sweet caramel and pine resin too. Zingy grapefruit and orange in the taste, big slab of pine resin, light red berry. Decent caramel to balance, but not overpower. Lingering sherbet fruitiness and resiny pine. Solid bitterness. This is good stuff.

Pours dark red with a white foam. Immediate aroma of pine. Initial taste of pine needles. The pine continues after swallowing. And stays on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is an amber color with a thin-ish beige head. Aroma is wonderful tropical and citrus hops: grapefruit, mango, pine, etc. Just beautiful. Taste is a bit more piney than the aroma, but heavy on the citrus hops. However, while the taste is mostly hops, they are hardly overwhelming. Just a wonderful all-around IPA. Delicious and easy to drink.

Draft beer at Bar-Ly in Philadelphia, PA. Really nice offering from Sierra Nevada. Graey hop flavor with a nice smooth opening and hoppy bite at the finish. Really easy drinking beer. --you've been Dubbed.

Pint, BJs San Bruno, CA, 02/11/13. Very lacy clear jelly red. Good, slightly catty, musky hop nose with berries and pine. Dry grapefruit and berries flavour with forest floor conifer and underpinning nut. Pleasing if not quite optimal pre-flight refreshment.
