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.

4.45/5  rDev +17.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bought a 24 pack at Costco,

Appearance-A nice reddish hue almost on the verge of being brown. 1/2" head fluffy

Smell-Great citrus hop notes followed with a little malt and grain hidden in the background.

Taste-Great complexity as this resembles a Amber and an IPA mixed together but in a good way. There is the first bite of bitter hop and then on to the smooth Amber flavor. It finished with a clean finish and back to the IPA on the verge of a little to much carbonation.

Overall great beer gets a really good complex flavor of Amber and Ipa in my opinion and should be tried by lovers of both.
