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.

This is an interesting beer. The aroma is very powerful and full of Pacific Northwest hop varietals. It is an attractive beer. There is something to the malt I can’t quite identify but like. Overall, good but a tad more citrus than my favorites.

Wow, SN nails it again with a beer that is very similar in taste to their Celebration beer. Nice blend of hops and bite. Solid IPA.

Darker IPA but, with beautiful thick rocky head. Some mildly bitter hoppiness, but not too tart. Smooth with a little dry hoppiness lingering. Gorgeous to look at, and too bad to drink either.

Drank from bottle Nose of grapefruit, citrus fruits and pine. Flavor of grapefruit and caramel malts at the end. Not extremely bitter like a normal IPA, a little dry. Overall an okay beer

Poured into an IPA glass. Reddish-brown with a fluffy, brown head. Aromas of lemon, orange and even some berries and mango, with just a touch of pine. Really complex blend of hops that is very assertive up front with a bit of bubble gum in the middle. My only complaint about this beer is that the flavor doesn’t fade, it vanishes. Really interesting beer that I wish had more body to last.

Clear brown copper red color nice tan head. Lemon, citrus grass nose with caramel malt flavor. Slight bitterness throughout, nice lighter caramel and molasses flavors. Pine on the finish which lingers with some sweet Woody malt flavors.

Bottle, pours a nice deep ruddy brown, thin head, not much lacing. Nose is malt, hops, bread dough. Mild malt taste backed up by hops and smooth dry finish.

Love the nose on this bursting with citrus hops, hints of berries and tropical fruits (pineapple), a little baked bread behind it. Flavor similar, more toward the tropical fruit side, with a mango pineapple sweetness. Bready finish. A spiciness emerges in the nose, a touch of rye grain and pepper. Finish hints at a piney resin, moderate bitterness but balanced with the chewy bready malts. Once upon a time I might have loved this more, like one of the old east coast IPAs I used to love, but I have grown more to prefer the drier ones. This is still an excellent example of the style and a great combo of hops. Copper color, modest head, fair lacing.

An India not-so-pale ale. Pretty reddish brown with a thick beige head. Awesome nose melding caramel, orange, mango and resinous pine. Nice spicy hop flavors zing the tongue but are followed quickly by building malts. Finally a quick wash of carbonation carries away residual bitterness lending a mellow finish of malt and hop fruitiness. Excellent.
