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.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 I had high hopes for this but something with sierra Nevada has gone wrong. Individual hop flavors get lost in a spicy bitterness. its overwhelming with the citra simcoe and centennial flavors struggling to break through. I started noticing this issue in all their IPA with last years celebration release. Thats just about when i noticed torpedo lost its floral citrus finish to just bitterness. Flipside gets better as it warms but I really like citra and simcoe hops and this beer isn’t the finest example of their use.

mice (816) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
2014 vuoden versio. Kuparinruskea, ehkä hieman punertava ja melko kirkas olut, joka vaahtoaa runsaalla kädellä. Beige vaahto on höttöistä ja reilusti pitsiä jättävää. Tuoksu mäntyinen/havuinen sekä kivasti pihkainen. Maku on kevyesti mäntyinen, pihkainen ja aavistuksen verran greippisen katkera. Myös karamellista makeutta tästä löytyy. Melkoinen hiilihappoisuus tuntuu hyökkäävän alussa, mutta hiilihappoisuus katoaa nopeasti. Suutuntuma keskitäyteläinen ja melko öljyinen. Jälkimaussa puumaista katkeroa. Paras terä tästä on varmaan jo taittunut, mutta toisaalta maistuu omaan suuhun hyvin näinkin oletettavasti hieman pehmeämpänä ja karamellimaisemman makeana. Tai sitten tämä on alunperinkin hieman pehmeämpi ja makeampi ipa.

Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

Fules (826) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 6, 2016
Közepes, nagyon tartós hab, rézvörösbe hajló barna szín. Illata citrusos, határozott narancs és mandarin héjas dominanciával. Íze ipás, gyanta nélkül. Markáns, határozott keserűvel indít, ami mellé végig édes-savanyú, intenzív gyümölcsösség társul, mandarinos, narancsos vezetéssel. Utóíze hosszú, markáns keserűvel, határozott gyümölcsösséggel. Nagyszerű, közepesen testes, kiválóan csúszó, kifejezetten frissítő nedű.

gpekar (494) - Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured a slightly hazy, dark chestnut brown with nice orange highlights. There was initially about a 2 finger slightly creamy tan head. The aroma was mild with floral, citrus and some earthy peat scents. The flavor was mild was well. Initially there was some light citrus followed by an earthiness. The finish was slightly on the hoppy side with just a hint of a bite along with more of the earthy taste

Listigovers (913) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2016
Dark brown pour, puffy tan head. Smells caramel, some earthy hops. Palate is sparkling, medium bodied. Tastes sweet at the start with some maltiness, finishes slightly dry... It’s alright.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Dark caramel color with reddish edges, small beige head. Mostly grapefruit peel has some light sweetness similar to golden brown sugar. Citrus hops up front with a bitter middle, some residual sweetness and a bitter aftertaste. Not bad at all!

Scrumpy369 (504) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle at csakajo. Light brown-copper colour with a stiff white head. Nose is slight citrus(?). Taste is slightly nutty. This is the same what i also think about black ipas/saisons etc. Mediocre beer sold by its colour. As it get warmer gets slightly better but still meh...

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - DEC 2, 2015
Alla spina. IPA rossastra e schiumosa, dal profumo amarognolo e resinoso. Al palato è setosa, erbacea e mediamente amara; l’ho trovata però poco persistente ed un poco scipita. Mi aspettavo più luppolo o più caramello, mancano entrambi.
