what is the name of an upside down flick?

standard 2 finger FH (flick) grip

but the disc is upside down?

thrown flat rather than 'vertical' like a hammer

usually used situationally to get out of trouble or around obstacles

Not to nit-pick, but a scoober is a hammer/tomahawk thrown with your feet in a backhand position. (right foot across, making your shoulder lead instead of your chest instead of being squared forward with is the typical fh positioning in ultimate.)

The shot the OP is describing sounds like a fh grenade, though I've never really heard a special name for it.

A scoober is a backhand tomahawk in Ultimate, but I have heard it used for a low thrown thumber that is meant to hit the ground and slide. The grenade is similar, but is thrown at an angle and is meant to skip up and drop in on a fade to a guarded pin position. I think at this point, most disc golfers have adopted the term Scoober, or Scooby to be a thumber thrown to slide across the ground. Does it really matter?

The grenade was explained to me as a backhand thrown with the disc upside down, which makes it hyzer very sharply and early, used mostly as a get out of trouble shot.
