Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
Sierra Nevada Flipside Red IPA
Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 355ml Bottle
Flipside Red IPA is a rebuttal to the mild-mannered beers of summer. Tropical fruit and citrus hop flavours from the use of whole-cone Citra, Simcoe and Centennial hops are the perfect notes for this in-between season.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Not their best
This brew is the latest from such an iconic craft brewery out of the states. Has a very subdued nose despite the bold statements on the back of the bottle..” This red. IPA is a rebuttal to mild mannered beers…”. Can get some fruit hops. We have had pale ales with more nose though , especially when using citra and simcoe hops. There is a deep amber hue to the body with definitely carbonation in the mouth. Little head and mild lacing on the glass. We definitely get the bitterness of the hops but we are slightly disappointed at the mildness of the hops. We thought this beer’s flavours were “robust”. Far from it. It is definitely a smooth IPA though. We get mild tropical fruit but very little pine. Sitting at 6.2% alc vol, it’s a standard yet mild IPA , and we think that there are better brews from this fabulous brewery. Not bad, not wonderful. Average IPA.
