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.

This has got to the be one of the most underrated beers on here, 86? Are you kidding me?

Absolutely love the very floral and herbal taste, and the hops are very good. I love the intensity that Torpedo IPA brings, but I also like that this one is not quite as intense, and gives you more of that earthy flavor, this beer is very very good and I will look forward to it every single year.
