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.

4.04/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

surprised this was so good--I'm a fan of SN beers but wasn't expecting anything exceptional from this one.

appearance is great, dark amber/red and 1+ finger head that holds well

smells very appealing and strong hop smell but not overpowering like many current IPAs

tastes distinctively like SNs other beers but with a little more going for it, deeper mix of hop and malt compared to somewhat thin tasting SN pale ale; just a touch more alcohol burn that I usually like, slightly burnt at the end

feels much richer than the typical SN; not too heavy but more substantial than a typical fridge six pack; smooth, rich, good bite

overall feels like a shade above a 4; more of a treat that a typical standby
