Thanks for purchasing another offering in our series of "Big Mo" Beers. For as long as people have inhabited Colorado’s Front Range, the Twin Sisters have had a strong impact on Colorado residents. The views from atop the 11,428’ peaks are breathtaking and afford sweeping views of the entirety of Rocky Mountain National Park. As an expression of admiration we have crafted an ale that exhibits a profound impact all its own. At 11428 IBU’s (just kidding), Twin Sisters is a mountainous testament to hops, and that they bring. A feeling of ease and relaxation become apparent for all whom would dare to climb it. So for all that enjoy summiting ales with copious hops additions to achieve a felling of contentment and awe, we offer Twin Sisters Double IPA. Enjoy!

Draught at TNT. Dark amber pour with almost no head. Aroma has more sweet caramel notes than hops. Same with the flavour, though there is decent bitterness. Needs more hops.

Aroma is malty and you get the usual apricot, citrus and exotic references. Taste is kinda balanced out, really good Imperial IPA - but streamlined in a way. You don’t get that overwhelming sensations. Sure, there’s hoppy bitterness with grapefruit accentuations and caramelly sugars. Floral and a nice malt profile. In the end, it’s a good solid double IPA, but nothing that makes you rip of your clothes and run down the street reciting power ballad lyrics.

Tap at Marciero. Amber-orange, a bit hazy, low lace. Rich malt nose, resin, citrus, mineral. Flavor is caramel, earth, minerals, pine, grapefruit. Too sweet and malty as usual for the style.

Garrold (2882) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bomber. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, old gold. Film of sticky, bubbly, white head. Really nice, albeit subdued, fresh, pineapple core hop. Sticky, slightly vinous malts. Tinned strawberry and the like. Bit of spice in there. It’s not in your face, but I can’t stop smelling it. Taste is also sweet. Quickly turns juicy, pithy bitter. Tad of chew on the palate. Nice bit of tooth rot. Finishes oozy, resinous bitter, just in time to cancel out some of that sweetness. Really drinkable, and by my reckoning this a little over seven weeks since bottling, which is pretty decently fresh. Could do another...

Peter_L (1191) - SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2015
Flaska från SB. Mörkt gyllengul med drag av röd ton. Maltig, lätt sädig arom som nästan fullständigt övermannas av grape, citrus, honung och ananas. Bra beska som domineras av tropiska frukter. Stor maltkropp som rundas av med en lätt släng fänkål.

Axile (47) - SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2015
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad med ett skum i en mörkare beige nyans. Ganska maltig doft med inslag av citrus, honung och karamel. Söt smak med toner av karamell, grapefrukt och torkade aprikoser.

@ Agards väg 5/9-15. Bottle from Systembolaget. Hoppy and fruity with grapefruit, caramel and pine needles. Body is medium, the finish is dry and bitter with pine needles.

Tasting @ gaultier. Bottle from systembolaget. Fruity, piney, bitter notes with honts of caramel in both aroma and taste. Dry finish

euniceradio (243) - Colton, California, USA - AUG 24, 2015
22 bomber to cervoise. Pours clear gold-amber, white frothy head. Aroma of crystal malts, grapefruit juice, caramel and rye malts. Taste of buttered biscuit, pear, raisin, oak. Big on the malts. Bitter finish is more herbs and spice than citrus and pine. Unbalanced towards the malts for a DIPA. For the label stating that it?s loaded with hop flavor, they got it wrong. Call it what it is...Malty RyePA.

harrisoni (15665) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle from gbbf 2015 and drunk at home. Clear amber colour. It’s a competent dipa for sure. Sweet but not cloying hoppy but not overly pungent. Flowery yet bitter . Some harsh bitter carbonic acid finish solid competent very drinkable but lacks a touch of soul and individuality. Good though.
