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.

Not as hoppy as torpedo more like red pale ale went well with brisket.

Nice Amber ale, not overly hoppy or fruity but just enough to know you are enjoying a red IPA, perfect for a crisp, cool fall evening.
