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.

I have a preceding bias against this beer because it seems to have replaced Tumbler as Sierra Nevada's fall beer. But it's not bad. It's not quite the malty, smoky brown that Tumbler is, but it's a good hoppy amber. And it does feel like a fall beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Red IPA. White IPA. Rye IPA. Session IPA.... Doesn’t anyone want to brew a new regular ol’ IPA anymore?!?
This ale has a handsome pour, a clear deep amber body with a sustained, creamy ecru head. Nice lacework. And a nice aroma - citrus and zest blended with mango and mayhaps a hit of pineapple. In the flavor, the malt comes across as a light caramel sweetness. The hop tastes fairly accurately reflect the nose and have a respectable level of zesty bitterness. This is a good drink.

Clear red with a thick head. Aroma of cedar and rosemary. Mildly bitter, and a tiny bit astringent, but overall this is very drinkable.

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 tap at Bulldog downtown pours a murky reddish brown with thin white head. aroma of bright citrus hops and caramel toffee malts. Malt forward and fruity but with a solid hop bitterness. Nice!

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.
