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.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Amber body with a bone color head that had great retention and nice lace. Aroma had a heavy grapefruit hop note some floral hops and a mild caramel malt note. Flavor was similar, although the caramel malts seemed to come through a little more. Some added bitterness from the hops. Finish was nice and smooth. Very easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (10324) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 28, 2015
355ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Very deep red, large but brief head, settles to just scum. Pungently hopped, some treacly caramel too. Fairly light palate, pleasant carbonation. Tastes first of the caramel, then some burntness, then the pungent hops, and then the treaclyness again. After you’ve swallowed it all, there’s a huge drying bitter finish, resiny and dirty in the mouth, quite a tingle. Not as sticky as your typical red, which is a good thing. No sign of any alcohol. Pretty decent. Too bitter for glugging, but I don’t think a whole bottle will be a problem.

Vighals (1816) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2015
Orangebrun noe tåkete med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter mørke frukter, karamell og grapefrukt. Fruktig start med medium bitterhet. Bitterheten sitter godt i avslutningen.

DrGD (103) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Clear copper colour with small white foam. Aromas of hops and fruits, also malty and caramel notes. Taste has hops, a mango sweet hint, a bit watery. Soapy mouthfeel. No real depth in flavour. I love Sierra Nevada beers and was expecting more from this one.

SarkyNorthener (2807) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge wines. Dark copper beer with large foam head. Aroma is malts, red berry and a hint of spice. Taste is malts, some spice and light caramel. Decent enough, but was hoping for better.

Keg at ushers. It’s red right enough. Citrus and caramel. Nicely balanced between malt and hops.

TheBear11D (361) - Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Flipside pours a mostly clear strawberry orange with a decent creamy beige head that lasts a fair while. The aroma is pine, floral, biscuit and honey. The flavor is floral, pine and biscuit. The body is medium with light carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer.

Turboninja (179) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
Light/medium aroma with bit sweeter dark fruits. Deep reddish orange color with small natural white head. Clear liquid. Medium/strong, quite dry taste with dark fruits, some malty notes and bit bitter feeling. Balanced. Medium taste spectrum and long bit sweet fruity and hoppy aftertaste. Medium/light body with medium carbonation. Overall quite stylish and balanced product, but too dry and dark for me.

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle. Deep amber in color with an off-white head. Ripe garden fruityness, sweet tea leafs and slightly burnt brown sugar in aroma. Citrus fruityness, some bitterness and green herbalness in taste. Sweet notes as well. Probably better as fresh, enjoyed on the premises, and not aired overnight.
