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.

Amber, small white head. Smells funny, stinky. Smooth and bland like a red ale. This beer must have been castrated... or was it that Stone Gotterdamnblabble I just drank?

Deep red pour. Sweetish start, lots of malt (not so much rye). Simcoe and Citra hops really come through. Creamy body, bitter finish. Good.

puboflyons (2117) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 17, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is amber red with a lingering off-white head. Floral and citrus aromas on the nose. The body is about medium. The taste also has a solid floral hop flavor with a thinner but notable malty character. A fine IPA but not quite as good as their Torpedo IPA.

copper with a medium off-white head, decent retention and a lot of lacing. typical sierra nevada hop aromas with citrus and spruce, some toffee and bread. medium bitter, light sweet. medium body, slick feel. blends in with most other hoppy sierra nevada beers for me.

CampesinoTino (757) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a coppery amber color with a layer of beige foam. Aroma is citrus peel, cannabis and pine resin with a little bit of caramel malt in the background. The flavor is grapefruit, pine and orange rind upfront followed by some caramel and tropical fruit toward the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a bitter, herbal finish. Overall, an enjoyable Amber/Red Ale/IPA blend of flavors.

floydslip (168) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Deep reddish-brown beer with a medium tan head of variable bubbles. Nose of light citrus hops, sweet malt, and slight doughy yeast. Flavor has a light citrus hop bite initially, which is not particularly strong for an IPA, especially when it is followed up with a mellow nutty sweetness reminiscent of a brown ale. The beer has a pleasant balance, but no flavor is really strong, making the overall experience less than it could be. Still, this is a good beer and unusual for the style. Worth a try.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Clear crimson color with sticky off white lacing. Nutty toffee aroma. Very well balanced beer with a pleasent malt feel up front with a fair amount of pine on the finish. Excellent little IPA.

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Brown with red highlights and thick, light tan head. Huge pine tar aroma. Lots of malt up front, followed by long, resinous, bitter finish. This will be hop heads happy for a long time.

PorterPounder (5454) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Circle K - N. Thomasville Rd (thanks for the tip Aurelius!) - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium bright, sparkling copper with a light off-white head. Aroma has a pleasant spruce essence to it, a hint of mango-like fruitiness. Flavor is full bodied and fresh with some nice citrus bitterness, some nuttiness, a hint of caramel sweetness and some mango-like fruitiness. Solidly thick mouthfeel. Another solid effort from the folks at Sierra Nevada.
