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.

I like amber IPA's, and this is a real nice offering. Great balance of citrus-tasting hops (citra, simcoe and centennial) and a nice carmel malt presence. You get a slight bit of hop bitterness in the finish - not overpowering but present. If you like that you will love this. Either way it is a quality brew that tastes real good. This was a great autumn pickup for me.

Aroma of malt and piney/citrusy hops.

I get a little chocolate and coffee on the tongue; nice clean acidity throughout.

The piney hops continue also.

Actually picked up a little pleasant sweetness on the tongue after I swallowed.

Beautiful balance between all the different qualities.

Tastes really hoppy but has a slight lager taste. But I love the fall spices.
