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.

The pourr looks promising. First taste has Pale Ale notes. Then it goes downhill, flat, metallic, dry. Finishes sour and leaves you wishing you had $15.99 back. Wasn't for me.

An interesting combination this darker IPA is a great transition out of summer. Definitely a different breed than your usual flowery piney IPA with complex amber and fruity flavor
