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.

Aroma is very nice sweet candy smell. Nice sweet malty flavor with big hop finish. A ton oh hops and ton if sweet malt. A lot better than the beer camp red ipa.

tillmac62 (313) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Pours a dark amber coupled with a red hue resulting in a full off white head. Excellent lacing. Nice hoppy nose - pine and citrus. Light medium body. Prominent hop flavor without being overly bitter. Finishes with a great hop flavor rather than a kick in your teeth bitterness, such as SN Torpedo. This is one of SN’s best beers. It is well balanced with malt and hop flavor. A very nice citrus / pine flavor at the finish that lingers as slightly bitter grapefruit.

On tap. Pours a dark mahogany with medium head. Aromas of grapefruit and brown sugar. Flavours of pine, resin, grapefruit and roasted malts. Long bitter finish.

A red IPA that actually tastes like an IPA with notes of a red ale instead of like a red ale that’s had a label change. ;) Maybe I’m reviewing on a bit of a curve here that accounts for some really bad Red IPAs, but I liked this one. Though I love Octoberfests and don’t mind the occasional Pumpkin Ale, it is nice to see a full fledged seasonal fall IPA join the mix instead of yet another variant of two styles that are well covered this time of year. Nice label with a tree with fallen leaves. Definitely seems to be an autumn seasonal despite being categorized as a summer seasonal on the site (I’ll drop the admins an e-mail and inquire). Assuming that’ this is indeed intended for fall, Sierra Nevada now has a fall and a winter IPA. Maybe they could get a year round seasonal IPA lineup going? I’d love to see a really good summer IPA to give me a seasonal alternative to the shandies and so forth that a lot of brewers put out during summer instead of just more or less skipping that season’s seasonal beers entirely.

hershiser2 (1285) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle. Reddish-brown, 1" of off-white head. Smells of sweet dark fruits and citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops, finishing with a nice tangy bite.

BrewDad (5085) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. A light amount of hops in the aroma. this was a disappointing beer. I was hoping for more hops nose and flavor. Just the flavoring of the malt came through.

Bulk_Carrier (2354) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Poured into a regular pint glass; the appearance was a hazy amber/red colored body with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dies within a minute, lacing is fairly thick and sporadic but spiderwebs at a good pace; the aroma has an earthy caramel malts coming through in a grainy yet floral sort of way, slight spice underneath; the taste is bittersweet and displays a bit of pine in the flavoring, no aftertaste and no finish; the palate is about a medium, somewhat sessionable but has a certain fill to it, carbonation seems to be pretty smooth and is good for the style and for me overall, hey not bad, so I’ll look for this next fall, good beer

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Darker amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is pine, citrus, grapefruit, thick caramel, light earth. Medium bodied, moderate sweetness, moderate to low bitterness. Very fruity.

mkgrenwel (596) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Very dark red pour. Brown ale opaqueness, but with significantly more red to it. Head is light colored, fluffy. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Strawberry, pineapple, hard candy. First thought is this has a lot of malt character. Tons of crystal. Almost nutty in its rich maltiness. Sweet but not overly. Hops are strong. Which is important because they have lots of heavy lifting to do. They feel quite masked by he malt though. Bright red fruits predominate. The tropical a from the citra want to show up, but the malt base really alters them. Big chewy palate with a silky smoothness to it. Carbonation feels a bit muted. Tasty, different take on the IPA. Might be better suited as a hoppy amber.
