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.

From a tap in a 20oz souvenir mug at o.co coliseum - home of the Oakland A’s (who swept the TB Devil Rays 9.1.13, my daughter got a used game ball). Dark red, clear with a nice thick white head. Smelled like a red IPA, hoppy with citrus notes. Taste is just what you’d expect from a SN brew - hoppy. Palate is medium body with good, light carbonation. I really liked this one (stood out after a Pliny in the parking lot which is saying something) but I am on a Red IPA/IIPA kick right now. Just behind Hoptimum, Celebration and Torpedo. Recommended.

12 oz bottle from Sprouts. Pours a brown-amber color with a small beige head that has good retention. The aroma features citrus, grains and a bit of cat piss. The taste bitter hops forward with grapefruit, pine and something spicy. The malt base is very aggressive and complex with malts that are every bit as assertive as the hops: I get caramel, toffee, rye bread, nuts and earthiness. The palate seems a bit light but it really works well with this concoction. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Top quality stuff,and the first red IPA that have really liked. This went down easy at the end of a 100 degree workday. Also, it was a good value at 6.99 a six pack.

Pours a dark amber color. Hops aren’t as prevalent in the aroma as I expected. Hop bitterness is fairly tame to my palate but the malt is the star of the show and it has a splendid set of flavors.

Bottle: copper pour with medium-sized beige head. Aroma is citrus tropical, toasty grain, malt, and caramel. Flavor has a sweet caramel, toast, malt, bread, and hoppy mango and citrus . Nice smooth easy drinking, nice balance of hops with malt and toast. I will be drinking more.

Shit, where did this come from? Reddish pour,white head. Citrus, mango, malts all present. Bitter, refreshing quality. Easy to drink, like torpedo on,y better. Perhaps the fall version of celebration? Jesus his is a good beer.

bhensonb (10748) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods in Folsom, CA. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy dark beige head. Lots of citrus and some trop fruits in the nose. Near full bodied. Firm roast "red" malt. Lots of fruit, but it also gets a bit earthy. Very hoppy drink, and the hop burn is light. Nicely done.

RedSox2004 (1210) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Clear deep red/amber with an off-white head and nice lace. Modest earthy hop aromas with generous bready malts and hints of peppery spice. Flavors come on a bit stronger, with earthy and citrus hops poking through a solid toasted malt foundation. Wonderful balance with a whisper of alcohol. Medium body, generous carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a rich malty finish.

Great aroma and reddish tint. The taste of grapefruit shines through. A nice summer IPA.
