Flipside Red IPA prominently features tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors from the use of whole- cone Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops. These hops are used both as finishing additions and in the Hop Torpedo, a proprietary Sierra Nevada device that captures more hop aroma and flavor, but not bitterness, during the fermentation process. The interplay of pale, caramel, and chocolate malts firmly roots Flipside Red IPA and supplies its rich color. With just the right gusto–6.2 percent ABV and 60 IBU–this seasonal beer is perfect for the final flash of summer.
Sierra Nevada Celebration will follow Flipside Red IPA in late fall, 2013
