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.

Pours dark red with a white foam. Immediate aroma of pine. Initial taste of pine needles. The pine continues after swallowing. And stays on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is an amber color with a thin-ish beige head. Aroma is wonderful tropical and citrus hops: grapefruit, mango, pine, etc. Just beautiful. Taste is a bit more piney than the aroma, but heavy on the citrus hops. However, while the taste is mostly hops, they are hardly overwhelming. Just a wonderful all-around IPA. Delicious and easy to drink.

Draft beer at Bar-Ly in Philadelphia, PA. Really nice offering from Sierra Nevada. Graey hop flavor with a nice smooth opening and hoppy bite at the finish. Really easy drinking beer. --you've been Dubbed.

Pint, BJs San Bruno, CA, 02/11/13. Very lacy clear jelly red. Good, slightly catty, musky hop nose with berries and pine. Dry grapefruit and berries flavour with forest floor conifer and underpinning nut. Pleasing if not quite optimal pre-flight refreshment.

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Solid sugary malt aroma, but even more resinous hops. Deep copper color, fine haze. My is it chalked out with bitterness, yet finish has a nice sweet ring to it as well. Crisp, snapping body. Not sure if these ’red hoppy’ beers will get their own category soon. This one is a very bitter amber.

Reddish amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is light hops with a touch of caramel. Flavor is slightly fruity hops, very bright with a bit of toasted caramel. A bit nutty in the finish. Wife: 3.75

Bottle. Pours the color of the attempted India Red Ale I tried to make... more a slightly reddish brown than a pure red... so that is comforting to me. Head is decent, frothy and tan. Aromas are a nice mix of tropical and resiny hops with just a hint of earthy spice peeking through. While I thought I was picking up the Citra tropical fruit notes in the nose, the flavor is overwhelmed by resin, pine and a dank edginess. I like it, but wonder if a little more of that tropical flavor were present what this would be like. To me it is kind of like Torpedo in that it seems to promise Citra and then take it away once the beer hits the palate. It has a decent balance between a kind of grainy malt presence and the hops. Good beer!
