COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Aroma contains lots of mango and star fruit. Very pretty color with a tiny ring of white foam. Taste is a punch of citrus hops up front with some pine. The malt sweetness takes over after that, leaving a nice and mildly hoppy aftertaste. This was good. Will buy if I ever see it in the St. Louis area. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours copper with a lasting cream head. Aroma is very strong pine, some grassy and citrus notes, but they are subtle and faraway. Taste is better, with a nice citrus/mango upfront and then fades to the nice, bitter bite. Recommended, especially if you’re more into the IPAs than the APAs.

thomat (2525) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle from SB. Amber with a medium off white head. Fruity and hoppy tones. Fruit, malt, caramel, hops and bitterness. Full body with a nice balanced finish.

dodskenta (91) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
Poured into a teku. Color is dark amber with a small and sticky white head. The aroma is resinous pine, flowers, cantaloupe, cheesy hops, and sweet caramel malts. Flavour does not stray far away, pine, grapefruit, sweet malts, caramel. Pretty bitter and medium carbonation, medium to full mouthfeel. Nice balance, would personally like to have more tropical fruits.

deyholla (8120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Sampled from the tap at the Oklahoma Craft Beer Fest. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of pine, grain and a hint of sweetness. Flavor is full of pine with a bit of resin backed by sweet grains.

jmohno (1256) - Iowa, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Low aroma/ fartspray. Clear light copper. Heady. Lace. Neutral malty double ipa. Ive had this before and remember loving it, yet this is pretty average. Sweet. Kind of feeling pissed I paid $10 for a bomber. Oh well, this may be near its time. I know this is better. Rated as is.

SinH4 (1081) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Dark orange-copper color with small white head. Floral, resinous, maybe honey, not so fruity aroma. Taste is a bit boozy, heavy body, slight bitterness. Feels almost like a wine. Low carbonation.
