Sierra Nevada Flipside Red IPA
Flipside will reach the whole market and will be 6 pack, 12 pack and draft. It’s a brand new brew, although we did use a name we love that’s floated around here before. We envision Tumbler peeling off a bit earlier this year and passing the baton to Flipside for September–October before Celebration emerges again.
Sierra Nevada DevESTATEion Black IPA
Farming’s never easy but Mother Nature got the best of us this year and we lost our entire estate barley harvest to strong winds and California drought. Luckily, our homegrown hops are as good as ever, so we’re honoring the memory of the barley that wasn’t by bringing you this new Black IPA.
It’s a shame when good barley goes bad, but instead of crying in our beer – or lack thereof – we decided to do one better and make something new. Featuring organic malts and our estate-grown wet hops, this black IPA is the evil twin of our legendary Estate Ale. Black in color with a mild roasty flavor and moderate body, this beer has a bold citrusy and earthy hop flavor and aroma from the use of our own wet hops. We’d never let one bad harvest get in the way of a great beer, so join us in a toast to the memory of our devastating season.
