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.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Catch you on the Sierra Nevada red IPA. No panache. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise cherrywood topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light pine sap, caramel, mild maple syrup, and a touch of grass. The taste brings in more of the same, the caramel and maple boldly defending against the massive onslaught of pine and citrus, though entirely in vain. Yeah, this means there's a bit of clash to the flavors, but it's not all that strident. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a nice "red IPA". 'Nuff said, really.
