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.

Pours out a reddish brown with sticky tan head. Smells like juicy grapefruit, pine and some tropical whiffs. Tastes like grapefruit, ripe melon, pine and some tropical fruit and pepper. Mouthfeel is rich and full. Overall fills a nice gap between tumbler and celebration ale. Brilliant market expansion Sierra Nevada.... ---Rated via my tastebuds and my brain.

Pours a burnt siena brown with highlights of red. Finger breadth of nice foamy eggshell colored head. Citrus and floral hops (mostly grapefruit/tangerine) abound in the nose. Molasses tinged malts with subtle hints of burnt sugar and sweet breads. Pretty dry red IPA with a chewy mouthfeel and lingering bitterness. Light, clean metallic after taste. Nice beer in a crowded space, but won’t knock your socks off.

Nice amber color with low head. The smell is minor and is quickly taken over by the strong flavor, but is slightly spoiled by the stinging aftertaste.

Draft at the Cincy Brew Ha Ha. Couldn’t believe I’d never tried this before after passing it up so many times. Anyway, pours a nice amber color with an off-white head that lasts. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits, spices, grass, straw, toast, pine, caramel, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a soft, resinous, malty, spicy mouthfeel. Really nice red IPA.

Weak aroma. I taste alcohol and a little hops in the background. A lot of bitterness with no character.

Bottle pour. Clear amber color with a large foamy beige head. Roasted malts aroma with light citrus. Medium body. Light flavor for a red. Light roasted malts with a slight hoppy bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted on 8/23/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours clear dark amber with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to sticky lace with an average collar. The nose is really nice citrus, tropical fruit, , a touch dank, and plenty of pine resin hops, with some dark bread malt. The flavor is the same diverse, very balanced hops profile with a bit more of a toasty bread malt presence. The body is medium with just above average, stinging carbonation, and a long toasted malt and bitter resin and citrus peel hops finish.

Weak aroma of citrus, hops and grapefruit rind. Pours and amber color with no head and weak carbonation. Balanced taste of citrus zest. Watery feel with a bitter chalky finish.
