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.

Nice, cherry red color. Exceptional head retention. Pine and grapefruit aroma. Big rye flavor complimented with an assertive herbal, pine-like hop spice. Medium bodied. High level of carbonation. Somewhat grainy texture with a dry finish. A slight twist on the American ipa. Tastes a lot like a RyePA. Not half bad.
