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.

Sierra Nevada Flipside Red IPA
12 oz. custom brown glass bottle

Notes: Clear chestnut-ruby body. The frothy light tan head drops to become creamy. Very good retention and lacing. Aroma: citrusy over sweet malt that's a little like dark cake. The flavor follows with the malt acting as the base for the hop flavors: bright citrus (pineapple, grapefruit), and berries (possibly from the yeast, or a combination of things). Solid bitterness. Interesting maltiness: very darkly caramelish with a sugary-bread and toast component ~ as stated, kind of like dark cake. Medium bodied, gently effervescent/crisp carbonation. Dry, lingering finish with residual bitterness and hop flavors.
