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

Oly (61) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Clear gold with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is some sweetness, pine, and melon. The taste is a nice balance of mellow malty, tropical fruit sweetness and bitter hops. The finish is bitter and long lasting, a bit too much for my liking. It tastes a bit boozier than the 8.5%, but not much. Overall, very drinkable IIPA, especially for the price.

ttoadee (1236) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Clear light gold pour, nice white head that is followed with steady lacing. Nose is alcohol and ripe fruit. Bitter. Middle is mango and apricot on a bed of sweet, slightly caramelized, malt. Finish leans bitter, alcohol showing. A big beer, but very drinkable.

tightslice (848) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is tropical fruits, some pine. Taste is tropical sweet, maybe pineapple, with some nice clean bitterness. Long and smooth in the transitions. Awesome IIPA.

teamsale (136) - Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle pours a clear amber with strong off-white head and massive lacing. Smells of grapefruit, pine, and a hint of melon. Taste is strong, pine, grapefruit, very hoppy, medicine, alcohol. Bitterness is strong but not overpowering, it hits late in the aftertaste and does stick around a bit too long.

slowrunner77 (9640) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Big grapefruit and earthy hop nose. Flavor is moderately bitter with a good dose of hops and a nice caramel backbone. Not a standout, but good.

robforbes (2168) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Pours a semi clear amber with a medium size white head, and very good lacing. Smell is of hops, caramel, earth, and malt. Taste is of hops up front, a tad sweet, caramel, dandelion, malt, and a little citrus. Ends dry and bitter.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Big clean grapefruit on the nose, then it picks up that green onion note that all four of their other hoppy beers have had so far. Medium bodied, big and sweet, more green onion hop juice coming through. Warming alcohol, but not boozy, just present. Slow grapefruit on the finish.

onceblind (6917) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Hazy golden with a large Rocky white head. Big, huge piney butter and pithy aroma full of gentle melon and perhaps kiwi as well. Big hoppy flavor with a big green and leafy hop tone with tropical tones of kiwi and pineapple and melon, but also earthy and bitter piney and dry. A bit bitter and leafy for my taste but somewhat different and leafy.

BelgianBeerGal (3716) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Can from Full Throttle Bottles. Nice clear copper color with a foamy white head. Pleasant aroma of sweet malt, citrus hops and a hint of dank earth. Big resiny flavor but also a kick of booze. Fairly well balanced for being big. Pleasant.

IndianaRed (3675) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 25, 2016
Can hazy light straw color. Thick soapy white head lots of piney hop flavors and aroma. Very big and fresh. Rather sturdy body esp fornthe light color. Not so much malty or caramel malts. A serious ipa
