COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Family always comes first. Just when you thought that your poor tongue couldn’t stand any more humulus lupulus, The Sister comes home to prove you wrong. Using the same unbreakable malt backbone of The Brother to balance out a truckload of Calypso and Bravo hops, The Sister weighs in at approximately a billion IBUs.

Down & Dirty: 2-Row, Wheat, Vienna & Dextrapils malts with Amarillo, Columbus, Cascade, Chinook, Calypso & Bravo hops. 8.5% ABV

ACHops (672) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2014
On tap @ the brewery. Pours dark orange golden with thin white head. Aroma is light sweet malt and citrusy floral hops. Taste is clean caramel malt followed by a sharp bite of bitter hops. Notes of pine and grapefruit on the hops. Easy to drink, though the sweet malt body hints at the 8.5% abv here. Heavy bitter hops kinda dominate, otherwise very likeable.

fletchfighters (1063) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2013
at Fremont Brewing Hazy amber orange color, white head. Basically a big pine bomb. Lots of pine in the nose and taste. Solid malt backbone but the bitterness really carries this and does it well. Well balanced and hides the ABV well

TimE (3143) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2013
hazy amber color. Huge piney hoppy nose. The mouth is very hoppy, but solid backbone with lots of pale malts, excellent balance, excellent execution. Superb IIPA on draft at the brewery.

pushkinwow (1997) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Amber with an off white head. Fresh citrus and tropical hops with hints of pint, very little caramel malt presence. Balanced bitterness, moderate body and carbonation, becomes quite dry, and overall delicious.

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Pours clear yellow, finger white head. Smell big grassy hops. Taste bittersweet, dirty grassy hops with a decent malt backbone. Smooth, mid body Very good, a lot like double jack but less sticky.

Travlr (11078) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Draft at the source courtesy of ajax25g, thanks! Clear golden amber color, bright white head. Aroma of fruity straw. Taste is bitter straw, fruit, scallions.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Fremont. Cloudy deep amber with a small beige head. Aroma of pine resin, citrus, caramel and flowers. Flavor is sweet and malty with a medium hop bitterness and some alcohol warming. Medium body a dryish mouth feel. Pretty good IIPA that is very resiny and slightly sweet.

Prufrockstar (918) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Tap at Fremont. Aroma is pine, backed up by weed, citrus and bread. Amber, fine white bubbles on the surface, lacing. Nice bitterness right away, mostly pine but with some citrus working its way in there, just a hint of sweetness but pretty dry otherwise. Smooth, creamy texture, light carbonation. Abv extremely well hidden - dangerously smooth. Also, delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Very much like The Brother, which I think I prefer - this one takes away the big punch of citrus hops in flavor of (ha) a more floral / piney / dry approach. Same great fullness in the flavor and body - these guys don’t skimp on ingredients! Really nice.

BrewDad (4922) - Olympia, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice big hops aroma and flavor. Earthy with a light fruit flavor. This was a very nice Imperial IPA. Big alcohol finish and dry this was super tasty.
