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!

ekstedt (5433) - Göteborg, - DEC 6, 2008
Hazy golden, medium white head. Earthy potatoe aroma with strong piney and apricot hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Dry with a frim but never overwhelming bitterness. The best Left Hand brew for me this far.

Hazy light amber, rim head, spots of lace. Taste is strong caramel malt with a vanilla cake taste in the palate that is soon joined by assertive hops. Both sides are strong and assertive, making for a big mouthfeel and a substantial finish that lingers for a long while.

Riktigt fin bira. Köpte 3-4 stycken när dr begav sig. Hade mer än gärna provat den igen ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler. Pours golden orange with a white head. Earthy hops, light sweet malts, some crystal malts, light candy fruitiness, and a moderate bitter finish. Not awful, but not that good either.

alexsdad06 (5408) - Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
22 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have resiny and citrus hops, pine, caramel, toffee, grass, decent bitterness that does not overwhelm, solid malt base, I personally enjoy more bitterness in my DIPAs, but this is pretty good.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Burnt orange in color with a disappearing white foam. Combination of tropical fruits and citrus with resin in there too. Medium body with a heavy hop flavor and bitterness. An underachiever for Left Hand but still respectable.

Bomber into Le Sniferette - bitter is the first impression. Somewhat dry. Grapefruit.

Espo1 (35) - - MAY 9, 2014
22 oz bottle. Appearance is a dark Cooper with a white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is tropical fruits with hint of sweetness. Taste is tropical fruits and finishes a tad sweet with a little bitterness. Overall good beer that masks the alcohol very well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewje41 (431) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2014
22 oz bottle. Thanks D! Pours a soft copper. Quick disappearing head. Aroma is floral and fresh fruit. Initially bitter hoppy flavors with an eventual sweet finish. This is not what I expect from a double IPA, but it was a nice surprise. Well hidden alcohol. Smooth. Delicious.

tomekk1978 (465) - POLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Barwa: jasny bursztyn, na początku klarowne, potem lekko mętne (dolna cześć butelki). Piana biała, średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca, oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: zdecydowanie słodowy, karmelowy, wyczuwalne cytrusy i białe owoce pochodzące chmielu. Bardzo przyjemny. Delikatnie alkoholowy. Smak: gorzki przechodzący w słodki, owocowy, bardzo przyjemny posmak. Mimo sporej mocy mało wyczuwalny alkohol. Konkretny imperial z wyrazistym aromatem i smakiem jak przystało na ten gatunek. Wszystko zgodnie arkanami sztuki. Warto spróbować, choć stosunek ceny do jakości mógłby być lepszy, ale trzeba wziąć pod uwagę długą drogę transportu z kraju pochodzenia.
