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!

750ml bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton. Poured a deep amber with a thin head into a snifter at home. Aroma of pine, citrus, and fresh meadow. The taste was a malt and hop bomb. Citrus and pine resin with the hops and malt/caramel balance. No notes were over the top. Nice DIPA overall profile. Medium body and carb. Overall good stuff.

Not as strong as some double IPAs, but truly is delicious. Generally speaking, I'm a huge fan of Left Hand beers. This is another good one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (5965) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized creamy-soapy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with notes of toffee, honey and pine. The flavor was sweet and tangy with a honey note then turned bitter with sour caramel, pine and a bit of earthy hops. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

[8013-20151227] 1pt6floz bottle. Fragrant fleshy fruity malt aroma. Clear, golden orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter leafy green malt and sweet heavy toffee flavour. Full body has a boozy base. Good. (8/3/7/3/15) 3.6

planky84 (2644) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2015
When I first looked at the label I thought this was a homage beer to that bloody awful poodle rock band from the 80s. Anyway, bottle from Oddbins Beer Shop, Blackheath. Copper coloured pour with a white head.Honey, marmalade and sweet citrus aroma and taste. Boozy mouthfeel. Bitter fruit finish. Tasty.

Bulk_Carrier (3156) - 1st Republic, Vermont, USA - NOV 4, 2015
This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt amber color with a one finger foamy head that dissipates pretty quickly. A tight filmy coat of lacing clings to the glass nicely and eventually slides into the beer. The smell started off with some dried sweet and bitter pine. Light citrusy tones slide in underneath. Light caramel malt rides in even slighter than the citrusy tones. The taste was mainly bitter dry arranging the sweet citrusy fruits in with the caramel malts. There’s a slight dry citrusy aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation feels fairly low allowing the dryness to really hit my tongue. Overall, its an okay DIPA, probably not one to seek out again, but definitely do-able.

bookman10 (806) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Pours a clear, dark, golden-amber, with good-sized head that dissipates rapidly. Aroma is quite muted: some floral notes, some hops, some sugar/candy smells. Flavor is rather sweet, with a lot of hop bitterness, some grassiness, some citrus, even a touch of anise. Almost verging closer to a barley wine, actually.
