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.

12oz bottle into snifter.

A: Pours a deep clear mahogany color with a greasy off white head that faded to a minimal film.
S: Grapefruit and citrus hops dominate. Very hoppy. Smells like a standard ipa without the red.
T: Follows the nose with tons of citrus hops and balancing caramel. Bready malt, juicy tropical fruit hops, a hint of mint come through. The finish is sweet, and I get caramel lightly bitter aftertaste. Slight bubblegum as well, and fresh greasy hop oil.
M: Medium full body, oily fresh greasy slick mouthfeel, normal smooth carbonation.
O: Excellent red ipa. Super hoppy and not overly malty. Very good hop profile.
