Default Brand new Sierra Nevada Flipside red IPA

I just picked up a sixer of the new Sierra Nevada Flipside red IPA and I have to tell you guys that it is the best beer I've tried in recent months. If Flipside is a replacement for SN's Tumbler autumn beer I am happy cuz it's a lot better than their Tumbler ale aand better than Torpedo or Celebration IMO. Here's a pic for ya

I'll definitely have to grab some. I see on the website they say they used Magnum, Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial. That's an excellent selection!

Better than Torpedo and Celebration? That's a bold statement. I haven't seen this yet, but it sounds good. I'll keep a look out.

It's def not a replacement for Tumbler. I've seen plenty of Tumbler around in stores lately (stock is increasing every day). My understanding is that this is 8-8.5% ABV (at least from what I saw on BeerAdvocate).

OP, what's your location? Something tells me west coast.

6.2% per the SN website. Standard IPA level.

Yeah, I had to go do some digging. They released Flipside last year as a 1-off IIPA @ 8.4%, from BeerAdvocate searches. Regardless, it's not replacing Tumbler, that's for sure, unless they're phasing it out with a transition simultaneous release.

Right. 6.2% which is on the light side by IPA standards, making it very easy drinking.

Bought this while on vacation in FL - went to grocery store one day around 8/23, no flipside, went back the next day - Flipside cases everywhere in said store. Case date was marked 8/14/13 - awesome bitter dry beer with a seemingly huge(er) SN house bready character than I usually pick up from SN.
