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.

badwhale (383) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle to glass shaker. Pours a reddish orange with a nice tan head. Good lacing. Has a great nose of citrus hops. Nice crisp mouthfeel, and good hop bite. On the more bitter side. Well done.

MichaelAwesome (4744) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
Nice one with classic hops and citrus in the fist nose. After that it offers some unusual malt and toffee moments which were a nice surprise. No rocket science but a decent and easy going piwo.

mikedevilsfan (203) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2015
nice ruby color with fluffy white head. Nice head. aroma is lacking and grain dominated. Taste is much better with some caramel mixed with some citrus. Not as good as I thought it would be, but good.

Bottled 08/26/14 - Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee, citrus, some hints of hops, fruits and grass. Taste is smooth, malty and caramely with notes of citrus, fruits and toffee. Finish is smooth and sweetish with some malty notes and hints of aged floral and grassy hops.

[Bottle] Bright copper pour with a nice pillow of white head on top. Sweet and hoppy aroma. Pine sap and orange peel come out most prominently. Flavors of citrus, sticky caramel malts, lighter pine, grapefruit and rye malts. Lingering dry and bitter hoppy finish. Great balance. A solid IPA.

Pepinis (65) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 18, 2015
Cerveza de color ambar profundo, limpia. Buena formación de espuma y estabilidad. Aromas afrutados y cítricos en primer plano provenientes de los lúpulos que recuerdan a pomelo, en segundo plano presencia de galleta y leve caramelo. En boca buena correspondencia con el aroma. Amargor de intensidad media y persistente. Cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación. Retrogusto levemente astringente y con marcada presencia maltosa pero en equilibrio ya que la sensación de amargor en boca es persistente. También deja un leve y agradable picor final.
