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.

3.66/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bottled August 16, 2013. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear burnt amber/red body with two fingers of light tan foam. Really great lacing and retention.

S - Pine, grass and a bit of tropical fruit. Some dankness follows it. Predominantly floral and piney though.

T - Bitter resinous pine, caramel malt, light spice, and some citrus/mango. The flavors are very balanced with nothing really taking the spotlight. Certainly tasty, but nothing too exciting. Mouth feel is medium bodied and lightly creamy. Very easy drinking.

O - Its departs from the Cascade signature that makes up their Pale Ale, but the Citra/Simcoe/Centennial additions really don't amount to much more then just light notes from each hop variety. It's less tropical then the description indicates and has a sort of Ruthless Rye malty profile but minus the actual rye spice that makes that beer so great. Overall, just a solid hoppy SN beer.
