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 a medium red/amber with a foamy off-white head and lacing. It has an aroma of citrus and tropical fruit hops and some amber malt as well. The flavor is fruity hops up front with a malty backbone and bitter finish over a medium body.

Feels a bit formulaic (torpedo plus írednessí), but sierra nevada has a good formula so im not complaining. Subtle caramel toffee, then passionfruit, and grapefruit/pine bite on finish. Like a very distant younger relative of surly furious, pick it up if the price is right...

Ughsmash (7266) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium orange with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up toasted nutty and biscuity malts with fresh pine and peppery accents. The flavor found bitter pine, black pepper, and grapefruit zest upfront, with biscuity malts following.. orange zest, pineapple, and peppery notes over supportive biscuit and graham cracker sweetness on the finish. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. a touch grainy.. overall a very good feel and flow. Nice one.

This red IPA is one of my favorite IPAs. The head lasts long. A very well balanced display of flavors. It has just the right amount of hoppop. Great end to the summer and start to the fall drink. I highly recommend this brew to any IPA lover.

Not a bad beer. The aroma is pretty mild but is full of citrus and pine. Taste is crisp and refreshing, but not as noticeable as I would like, very easy drinking though.

Beerandhockey8 (239) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - OCT 26, 2013
From 12oz bottle to tulip glass. Pour is a deep ruby, thick khaki head. Nose is heavy hop, citrus, pine. Taste is medium bodied, mostly dominated by bitter but sweetness from the citrus coming through. Malty finish, heavy texture thatís great not the palate. Great red IPA, heavy and complex.

fraternie (884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Massive frothy head was somewhat of a surprise, and rusty amber colored body was exactly what I was hoping for when I bought it. Strong aromas of pine cone, rye bread and subtle citrus. Malty with sweet caramel mingling with its citrusy undertones of grapefruit and orange peel, with the slighest hint of cocoa creeping in before it gives way to a fresh, piney hops. A nice red IPA for the autumn.

Bottle; dark auburn color with a khaki colored frothy. Aroma of citrus, fruit, grapefruit, and earth. Nice aroma. A solid and enjoyable aroma; easy to drink with some good complexity. Fruity and earthy; tropical and citrus. Palate was pleasant. Some bitterness/earthiness in the finish.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a tawny, rust-toned body with a smallish, near white head. Light haze. Little lacing.

Smell: Predominately hoppy, notes of grapefruit, additional oily citrus and even a sliver of mango. Rather grassy with pine-hinting resins. Underneath, a little basic toast and grain.

Taste: Toasted breadcrusts, touches of grain and a low, brief caramel-esque sweetness. Very, very faint unsweetened chocolate powder. Sharp, citric grapefruit and orangy kicks with a leisurely bitterness. Moderately resinous, grassy. Pulls up on the grassy, resiny tones at the tail end and into the bitter, drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Itís red, itís bitter. I was fine with it.
