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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a deep amber with off white head and good lacing

Aroma- some faint tropical fruit, toast, caramel, cinnamon(as it warms), grain

Taste- not incredibly vibrant, but lots of flavor. Tropical and citrus hop notes, a touch of stone fruit, toffee and caramel malt, some spice, finishes toasty with caramel malt and some spicy and fruity hop zest

Feel- very nice medium bodied, balanced, subtle carbonation

This is a great beer, I'm glad SN added it to the fleet, it's a nice variation on their standard hoppy goodness. I do wish that this was a little... brasher, this is is a great tasty drinkable beer. I am a fan of Tumbler, but with some caramel malt toastiness and hops, this is another great welcome fall offering- a great hoppy alternative to the plethora of Oktoberfest and pumpkin blah.
