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.

6 pack from local liqueur store for $9
Poured into SF giants pint glass

A: Deep amber with egg shell white head Nice lacing on this one!

S: Citrus loads the senses! I'm getting Orange, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, and a hint of pine at the end!

T: Slight sweet malt and pine on the attack gets blown away by a bouquet of citrusy hoppy goodness! Hints of sweet malt longer on the end espically as it warms!

M: Well carbonated and the hops dance on the tongue! Dry finish that leaves you wanting another sip! It's medium bodied but thins out some what as it finishes.

O: Outstanding beer! Excellent for the cooling weather or for a hop head looking for a different take! Only complaint is how thin it get as it finishes but it doesn't detract much. Makes it even more dangerously drinkable! Definitely needs to be experienced and enjoyed!
