So I had this beer the other weekend when I went to a Stanford Football game. I’m a big fan of Sierra Nevada and what they brew. My love for them continues with their Flipside Red IPA. The aroma is Sierra Nevada’s trademark pine and citrus, and taste is a big dose of citrus, a little caramel, malty, coppery, and with the bitterness you expect from a good IPA.

The Flipside Red IPA gets a rating of 4 out of 5 baby sea otters.

Seeing all the support for equality from this and red equal logos on Facebook make for a very encouraging sight.
