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.

Pours a nice copper with light tan head. Head disappears relatively quickly but lacing remains very strong. Smells very earthy like cool wet soil on a hot summer day, lighter on the hoppiness. Very interesting and nice. The taste has a delicate bitterness and hoppiness up front but fades quickly to fruit punch on the finish (like Hawaiian punch - really cool). Has a very sophisticated feel for what I consider a sessionable beer. The complexity of a great IPA with a drinkability that is all its own. Overall fantastic and well worth the money. This and Celebration Ale have really impressed me and have been two of my favorites here at the end of 2014. Kudos Sierra Nevada!
