Notes/Commercial Description:
Just when it feels like the dog days will never end, suddenly, the switch is flipped, the air gets cooler and it’s clear that autumn is on the way. Featuring a ruby-red hue and abundant tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors, Flipside Red IPA is the perfect beer for the final flash of summer.

So I guess Sierra Nevada was like the hell with having just a summer and a fall seasonal, let's make a late summer/early fall seasonal. I found out about this beer on their website last night, and thanks to their beerfinder, I tracked it down at Target today, and am now enjoying.

Great pour with a nice, thick off-white head; dark, dark honey-colored quaff. Great looking beer. Aroma is citrus, hops, yeast, and like a little smoke (or is that my grill?). Very nice. Flavor's got some spice to it, nicely hopped, barely sweet, malt, and excellent mouthfeel. Well carbonated and structured but not heavy.

I'd say this one is definitely right for this time of year. Nice job to Sierra Nevada for concocting this gem.
