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.

mrhopsbeertalk (159) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2014 2014 - Very different aroma and flavor profile. The aroma is much more pine and earthy with subtle notes of grapefruit. The flavor has lost nearly all the fruit and caramel notes and seems dominated by what’s most likely the substitution or addition of chocolate or black malt. The hop flavor seems less exotic and lacking, one dimensional. 2013 - Starts bitter, flips to fruity, then finishes bitter. The aroma is mild, floral, citrus and caramel. Nicely blended flavors carry the same idea with a strong punch of fruity hops. Could use a bit more body and dry hopping.

It pours amber with a slightly off white head that produces a fair amount of lacing. It smells citrus with a piney influence. It tastes piney with citrus notes and maybe a bit of hay. It is not bitter like most IPA’s. There are some tropical favors as well.
