COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Citrusy and fruit-forward hops soar over a smooth malt body. Flipside finds the perfect balance between hops and malt in this easy-drinking red IPA. It features just enough smooth and slightly sweet malt body to support huge citrusy and tropical fruit-forward hop flavors from the use of Simcoe, Citra, and Centennial hops.

LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours a deep, clear amber with a large, creamy off-white head. Strong IPA aroma. Flavors of pine and some caramel. Full bodied. Nice change of pace IPA.

Dark amber color with absolute clarity. A dense, soapy offwhite head rests on top. Some toasted grain with a caramel touch are the backdrop for a very dry and dank pine forrest that leaves the pallet dried out and wanting more.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle @home (rating backlog). Pours amber almost brown, white head. Nose is citrus fruits, toffee, slight pine. Taste is oranges, toffee, again slight resinous pine, bitter finish.

Svesse (8921) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2017
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of orange marmalade, apricots, toast, treacle-toffee, honey, pink grapefruit, caramel and floral hops. Fruity, malty taste with orange marmalade, apricots, grapefruit, honey, caramel, toast, toffee and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, fairly dry. Tasty and well balanced. Nice one.

mice (1095) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
2014 vuoden versio. Kuparinruskea, ehkä hieman punertava ja melko kirkas olut, joka vaahtoaa runsaalla kädellä. Beige vaahto on höttöistä ja reilusti pitsiä jättävää. Tuoksu mäntyinen/havuinen sekä kivasti pihkainen. Maku on kevyesti mäntyinen, pihkainen ja aavistuksen verran greippisen katkera. Myös karamellista makeutta tästä löytyy. Melkoinen hiilihappoisuus tuntuu hyökkäävän alussa, mutta hiilihappoisuus katoaa nopeasti. Suutuntuma keskitäyteläinen ja melko öljyinen. Jälkimaussa puumaista katkeroa. Paras terä tästä on varmaan jo taittunut, mutta toisaalta maistuu omaan suuhun hyvin näinkin oletettavasti hieman pehmeämpänä ja karamellimaisemman makeana. Tai sitten tämä on alunperinkin hieman pehmeämpi ja makeampi ipa.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2016
Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste.

4.1
Fules (1422) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 6, 2016
Közepes, nagyon tartós hab, rézvörösbe hajló barna szín. Illata citrusos, határozott narancs és mandarin héjas dominanciával. Íze ipás, gyanta nélkül. Markáns, határozott keserűvel indít, ami mellé végig édes-savanyú, intenzív gyümölcsösség társul, mandarinos, narancsos vezetéssel. Utóíze hosszú, markáns keserűvel, határozott gyümölcsösséggel. Nagyszerű, közepesen testes, kiválóan csúszó, kifejezetten frissítő nedű.

3.2
gpekar (497) - 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

3.2
Listigovers (1383) - 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.

3.2
IslandHaole (1301) - Misawa, JAPAN - 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!

2.3
Scrumpy369 (986) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 28, 2015
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...
