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!

Beer pours with an off white rapidly diminishing head with some lacing. Nice malt backbone with well balanced and aromatic hops. Not as good as DF 90 but will do in a pinch

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.

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 (775) - 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.

Bomber bottle, pours golden brown, small white head. Sweet, sticky malts, grapefruit, papaya, light spice, piney, sticky and resiny, finish is lightly bitter. Tasty IIPA

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle split at GBBF ’15, day 3, 13/08/15. Clear golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is caramel malt, bitter orange, toasted malt, citric pith, light spice. Taste comprises earthy hops, caramel malt, bitter orange, straw, bready notes. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a touch of boose. Ok but ultimately fails to deliver the flavour that the ABV warrants.

Draught at Ibrew Wired. Grapefruit, orange, pine, apricot marmalade, caramel, bittersweet finish. Decent stuff without being brilliant, have yet to be impressed by this brewery.

GenkiGonzo (775) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 10, 2015
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.

Hopmaestro (848) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2015
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.
