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.

Pours a dark transparent red, about what you would expect from a red ipa.

The smell is earthy, piny, english hops with a little sweet maltiness.

The taste is malty up front, earthy with a piny bitter finish.

The feel is medium bodied, with medium carbonation.

A decent enough ale, very earthy and dirty tasting. The bitterness is lingering.

Very well balanced. Not too citrusy as I thought it was going to be. Still a good hoppy flavor as with most Sierra Nevada beers.
