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 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 that’s great not the palate. Great red IPA, heavy and complex.

fraternie (885) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4486) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
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: It’s red, it’s bitter. I was fine with it.

rodenbach99 (3461) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
Bouteille de 12oz. Vintage 2013. Bière à la fine couleur noisette avec une mousse beige. Un nez qui ne surprend pas avec des notes de caramel et de houblon. Un bouche robuste avec des notes de caramel sucré. Rien de spécial mais très bien faite dans la tradition de Sierra Nevada. Merci Patrick.

stoutgap (43) - Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle to glass, light brown color with one finger off white head that laced nicely.Aroma of citrus and pine, that followes in the mouth. Thin but it is a summer beer. Would make a good summer session beer, even with the 6.2 alc.

Pours a robust reddish amber, healthy amount of off-white head. Aroma is a bit subdued, mostly malty. Taste is nicely balanced, piney and citrus hops with caramel malt. Pretty drinkable.
