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.

$6.50 for the 16 oz. serving ordered at the Grog last Wednesday evening. Juicy, but not overwhelmingly so. Candied citrus, spearmint, and Carared on the forefront, followed by pine bark, grapefruit zest, honey, and salted caramel. Medium bodied, with a thin layer of retention. It could be better; it be worse.

WesleyA (4) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 16, 2013 does not count
A different take on an IPA. quite dry and strong hop flavor. Plenty of sweet citrus on the nose. Malt character a little too much for my personal preference on IPAs. But overall a good beer and quite surprised but the very pleasant aroma.

Draft. Nose full of hops and honey sweetness. Slightly bitter. Very forgettable.

Nero55 (637) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle. Deep amber with medium khaki head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus (grapefruit) and some malt sweetness. Medium body with notes of citrus hop bitterness and not very balance with the malt body.

jb (2146) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Clear red color. Floral and malty hops in the nose. Palate indicates this one might be a bit stale. I won’t hold that against the rating.

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Deep amber color with a sticky off white head. Fresh hop cone nose. Citrus hop flavors with some ripe fruit, red grapefruit, tropical fruit, and a juicy orange in the finish. Nice ipa variant.

johnnnniee (2150) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 8, 2013
On tap at Murphy’s Comes to the table a crystal clear medium reddish brown with a fair off white head. Aromas of bready malt, hints of spice, and lots of citrus and pine. Flavor follows the aroma, a bit skewed to the malt side but flavorful enough. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick almost sweet mouthfeel. Nice easy drinking flavorful ale.

Reminds me of a cross between a malty Oktoberfest and a IPA. Great malt/hop flavor. Nice dark amber color. Very enjoyable, will purchase again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just looked this up and realized I forgot to rate it. I liked this new seasonal from Sierra. Less abrasive hop notes than celebration, torpedo, or even snpa. Nicely tropical and citrusy and perfect balance.
