Pint at Capones, hazy red pour with lasting foamy head, and awesome lacing. Super fresh. Notes of pine, grass, lemons, and tangy hops. Usually donít like red ipas but this is so Fresh and has a great hop lineup. Enjoyable

Bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit, mango, very floral and citrusy. The taste is lightly bitter, very citrus kicked.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely copper color, clear body, and two finger thick foamy head made the pour look good in a mug. The aroma was not as hoppy as expected, which did have the benefit of some nutty, caramel malts show through. The taste was also a good deal sweeter than a typical IPA at first, with syrupy first impression. Upon staying longer in the mouth, the beer suddenly seemed to start to get citric, and the finish was quite bitter, with a drawn-out aftertaste. Quite a bit more complex than the first impression, but let down a little by a watery feel.

Got this at the 16th St. Albertsons this evening... Pours with a 2 finger lite tan head.. the brew is clear red/amber... splotchy
Nose shows big American hops... citrus and pine are unapologetic... Hops are big and fresh and sorta pummel the caramel/dark toasty malty notes.
Flavor is not as good as the aroma IMO... seems a bit watered down compared to the big nose... light toasty elements hit a good piney/grapefruit hoppy bite.
Body is lighter than expected... carbonation is good... Despite my above negatives, this is a well done beer.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is metallic, mineral rich, toffee, citrus, resin, earthy beer. I thought it was okay but it definitely had the Sierra Nevada character that I do not really care for.

Bottle from Proof. Deep ruby pour with a small bubbly tan head. Resiny, citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, blood orange with a light malt backbone. Loads if tropical fruits and citrus throughout the flavor, mild malt mid palate with a bitter dry finish. Sticky, resiny, delicious. Good stuff.

Pours copper red with a large khaki head. Smells of tropical fruits and pine. Taste is bitter, woody, with subtle tropical fruits and citrus notes. Medium-bodied with slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Sierra Nevada Flipside Red IPA finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Off-white head. Beautiful reddish body. Nice hop content which isnít simply pine resin for a change. Bitterness lingers on the back of the tongue in the aftertaste. Body isnít too heavy. Good job Ken G!!
