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.

Easy drinking Sierra Nevada brew. Solid SN quality but I expected more from a red IPA. More like an amber pale ale IMHO, not necessarily a bad thing. This would be a good gateway beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into a pint glass: Pours brown / red with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, tropical fruit, and resin. Taste is a caramel, slight nutty, nice balance between the sweetness of the malt and the resin and tropical hop notes. Medium body, strong carbonation, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Tasty.

On draught at the North Fork Craft Beer Festival at Peconic Bay Vineyard. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of pine along with some malt and caramel. The flavor begins with malt and a bit of caramel followed by pine with some mild resin. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

Finger length head; doesn’t stay around much, but there is tons of stringy lacing that does stay for quite awhile. Aroma is massively piney at first, which concerned me, but then it becomes more subdued with citrus and popcorn grains dominating. Flavor is rich bready malt with hop resin and wood. Also a little hot, herbal, spicy. I can always trust Sierra Nevada for a well-balanced, high quality IPA. A fine red.

Solid tropical red ipa. Pours reddish brown. Very fresh tropical hop aroma. Heavy malt back bone with lots of tropical and spicy presence. Medium mouthfeel.

Tap at old Chicago, powers, COS. Hoppy aroma with notes of citrus. Pours amber colored with a thin off-white head and a touch of lacing. Starts out refreshing with notes of citrus and hops. Finishes very dry with a sharp bitter finish. Decent, but not their best.
