Can from Total Wine, Lynnwood, WA, tagged 04/04/17, nearly 4 months old
Hazy light amber color. Nice aroma of bready malts and mildly dank hop. Moderately sweet, good malt base, quite strong, cereals, followed by resiny hops.
Not the freshest, but still quite good.

Small can shared at Alex’s. Canned on 2017-04-04. Pours a hazy golden with a white hear. First nose is candied citruses, second is more herbally with some dirty notes. Same taste. Quite good.

A very nice double IPA. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Smells great, citrus, pear, hops. Taste is dry, with lots of citrus, and a spicy, hoppy finish. Had on tap at Fireside Grill. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden slightly hazy colour. Small white head. Fruit cocktail in the nose combined with earthy spicy notes. Same in taste. Malty sweet backbone with balancing bitterness. Moderate feeling of alc. The nose is most interesting. Taste is good average DIPA.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a real nice citrus and maybe some pineapple fruitiness. Flavor is again a nice citrus rind fruit with bitterness for days. Grapefruit and orange peel. The bitterness will pull the enamel off your teeth. No sweet malt to get in the way of the hops, this thing is tasty and a IBU assault.

12oz can much thanks to andrewje41! Pours a chill hazed dark orange color with a small frothy white head. Aroma of orange marmalade, grapefruit, citrus skins, sweet malts, and hints of pine. Taste of bitter pine, old oranges, caramel malt, aspirin, and loads of citrus pith. Aroma is the winner here

commonmac (1285) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2017
Tap from the source in Seattle. Sitting on the patio while a shower passes through. Quintessential Seattle. Golden orange hue with about a quarter finger white head. Nose is citrus...almost a citrus oil characteristic. Taste is big and assertive with aggressive citrus rind bitterness. A bit of tropical fruit. Oily mouthfeel...resin. Not a lot of sweetness or balance. Basically trying to be a hoppy imperial IPA without interest in appealing to the masses. This sister isn’t a sibling I’m very proud of...like she joined a religious cult and turned a little crazy but you still love her because she’s your sister. Look for other Fremont options.

Pours golden, with a nice white head. Aroma of hops, taste is rich and complex, with a very nice alcohol kick.. Thumbs up.

ajnepple (6824) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2017
On tap at Hops & Pie. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Aroma of zesty hops, grains, tropical fruit and light citrus. Similar flavor, adding medium to heavy hop bitterness and minimal malt sweetness with a dry, lingering finish. Nice.
