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.

Hop foward, mostly citrus, herbal, spicy, a little mint. Deep malt backbone, sweet bread, toasted, caramel, bread crust. There some roasted mango towards the end. Finish is bitter and dry, yet pretty crisp. Body is full, a little oily, crisp, refreshing, dry.
