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.

12 ounce bottle shared by maniac at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a clear dark bronze color with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of sticky resin and pine hops, earthy notes and toffee malts. The taste is toffee malts, caramel, bitter resin, pine hops. Medium bodied. Solid.

The aroma is like mango and grapefruit had a baby. It pours a reddish amber color with thin head. The taste is quite hoppy but the heavier malt really rounds it out to give it a lightly sweet caramel like sweetness. Body is light to medium with an oily mouthfeel. Overall I’d say it’s a pretty good seasonal offering definitely worth trying.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Pint glass From: VONS in Big Bear City, Calif. Price: $8.99 w/ VONS membership card Purchased: Sept. 13, 2013 Consumed: Sept. 13, 2013 Misc.: Best by Nov. 23, 2013 (I think); Beer Advocate says Amber/Red Ale, Sierra Nevada has IPA in the title so SN wins and I rated it accordingly. Poured a caramel reddish semi-clear color with three fingers of frothy off-white head. Lots of bubbles initially coming up from the bottom. Healthy amount of fairly even foamy lacing on the sides of the glass on the way down. Very good retention on the top all the way down. Tons of hops in the nose. First got skunky resin hops, but that was replaced by floral hops and some citrus hops. A touch of grapefruit and mild tropical hops as well. Tasted like a mild-mannered version of the smell. Floral hops really come up roses (get it?) here, followed by Simcoe hops, citrus hops and still some resin hops. Also mild tropical hops and rye hops. A mix of grapefruit and lemon as well. Light-to-medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Rather abrupt, but bitter finish. Just another good beer from Sierra Nevada. No surprise here. This was even better than the same kind I had on Labor Day that I did not rate. Would try it again.

12 oz bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a deep amber/reddish brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have some background citrus and mild tropical fruit, grass, caramel, toasted malts, mild to moderate bitterness to the finish. Good, but not as fruity as I was expecting.

joeneugs (3241) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 13, 2013
12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark amber color with a dense off white head. The aroma is pretty potent with citrus and pine hops, dark red berries and dry dark maltiness. The flavor has pine, tropical fruit medley, citrus and a good malty backbone, yet dry. Nice bitter finish. Really nice beer.

This IPA jumps on the citra bandwagon. Great hop flavor, mild bitterness, and pairs well with Asian food. I find it the perfect compliment to sriracha hot sauce! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle, pours a reddish brown. Lots of pine and citrus hop aromas, mixed with malt. Hop forward followed by sweet malts with bold bitterness. Overall a full flavored IPA, with some burn in the finish.
