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 most disappointing Sierra Nevada offering I've had yet...and I enjoy their Pale Ale several times a week (and I enjoy red ales a lot).

Pretty much just no taste...well no taste that is good or reminiscent of a red ale/red IPA anyways. Tastes like your most basic beer.
I am not ashamed to say I drank about half and then drain poured the rest of the bottle. Luckily I only picked up one bottle out of a mix-a-six.
