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.

Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber with airy but stable off-white head. Intense, hoppy flavour with notes of grass. Bitter, hoppy flavour with citric notes and a little grainy finish. OK.

Pours a nice, clear amber color with a thick light beige head. Aroma is floral, spruce, citrus, caramel and nuts. Taste is floral, mango, pine, with a faint malt sweetness. This stuff is really easy drinking and tasty.

Pours as "red" as a beer can be. Excellent head retention with sticky lacing. Aroma is Citra-heavy with caramel malts. Flavor is not as caramelly as the color would suggest. Nice toasty note. Fairly drinkable beer, but there’s a sharpness to the finish that keeps it from greatness.

monk191 (1084) - California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
A decent beer, more of a pale ale then an IPA. Pours a very nice slightly cloudy red. Smells awesome, like tropical fruit with a bit of hops. Taste has pineapple upfront, and a strange lemony fizziness in the finish. Not much bitterness, which is good. Taste does not hold up to smell though. Had in the bottle at Nantucket in Crockett. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Very frustrating for a brewer, especially one I respect as much as I do SN, to name two different beers the same name (red IPA & double IPA). Forced me to go dumpster diving to get the bottle out to check which one it was, compromising my bad back in the process. Stunningly beautiful darker red body with a thin layer of light tan head. Although it’s clear that hops are evident, they are subdued considerably by the amber malt. What remains is a different kind of balance. When I think balanced IPA i think of a beer that is strongly hoppy but balanced by malt sweetness. This beer is balanced in that is neither overly hoppy nor overly malty. Smooth and enjoyable, perhaps similar to a goose island honkers ale on roids. As unremarkable as this beer seems upon first sip, it still scores well in the aesthetic categories.

Moderate floral and citrus hop aroma. Clear red color with a large tan head. Sweet beginning with a bitter finish.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2013
The aroma is subtle with hints of tropical fruit being predominate. Pours a dark amber with a white ring and sparce lacing. The taste is fruity up front, followed by biscuit and grain, ending in a moderate, but long lasting bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonatin. Overall, a well crafted IPA…but so are a whole bunch of others.

This was gift bottle from my friend John Auble, who doubles as my financial advisor. From the 12 oz bottle this pours dark copper with a creamy beige head and a lot of lacing. Nose is strongly citrus and tropical fruit. Full body. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor of roasted malts, but hops balance it perfectly with a earthy and bitter finish. Very nice beer.

I really enjoyed this. Lots of hops and malts throughout with a great hop flavor. I may start drinking this over the Torpedo.

Wittales (646) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Appearance was clear root beerish with lasting creamy tan 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are sweet rye, pale, crystal malts with loads of tropical and citrus fruits, no alcohol. Taste are slight sweet malt backbone then the hops come to play of pinnapple, mango, lemon, orange, hints of pine are the stars. Palate are smooth soft CO2 with lasting fruity and dryish finish. Love it, but a smoother not so dry yeasts would be better.
