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.

Truly enjoyed this one, nice body, sweet on the finish and not a dry beer. Glad it was recommended and would definitely get it again. ---BEARFN

gpekar (484) - 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 (618) - 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 (1178) - 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!

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...

obguthr (5095) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Mild aroma of dried leaves, clay, and vinegar. Clear tea, thick sticky yellow head. Astringent lemon zest, clay, and dried leaves. Soapy tea finish. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Kosmokrator (761) - 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.

scarletfire65 (1242) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle at home. Deep amber pour. Off white head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is toasty malt and pine. Tastes of piney hops, orange zest, a christmasy spice palate with hints of cinnamon, and a resinous, sticky finish.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, dark copper color with golden amber edges and a half finger off-white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Sweet, slightly spicy malt aroma with a subtle resinous hop character. Some earthy, grassy hops with a touch of citrus but the nose is dominated by caramel malt, rye, bread and toffee. Really weak hop presence. Disappointing for an IPA. Thankfully there’s much more of a hop presence in the flavor. On the fuller end of medium bodied with a blast of dry, bitter hops that linger over the sweet and spicy malt notes into a sticky, dry finish. Dank and resinous with grass and pine needle flavor as well as some subtle grapefruit and citrus rind. This is countered by a sweet malt backbone that has a strong caramel flavor. There’s also some toffee, bread, faint dark fruit sweetness and. a spicy rye component that nicely compliments the hop profile. Well balanced and easy to drink. A nice hoppy beer for the fall season.

Sigmund (6118) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2015
355 ml bottle, in Nevada City. Reddish brown colour. Has the typical West Coast hop aroma and flavour, with notes of citrus and pine, but also some nice nutty notes from the malts, which contributes to a lovely balance. Another good beer from Sierra Nevada!
