Golden amber color with an enthusiastic head in the tall Blanche de Chambly glass. Tangy and spritzy mouthfeel. Flowery, gardenia scent.

Sweet, crazy hoppy. It's like a tangerine float with hoppy Seven-Up. Moderately bitter but overflowing with hop flavors and aromatics. Warm malt, sweet yet zingy. Enough acid to balance the orange marmalade taste. A candy-like flavor-- what are those things-- Cotlets? Except without the powdered sugar, but very deeply fruity.

A thoroughly pleasing big IPA that is quite sippable in the style of a liqueur. From the 12 oz can purchased at the tasting room in Fremont, Seattle.

I don't have a lot to add to other reviews, but I can't resist quoting from the text on The Brother 12 ounce can:

"The Brother is the first of our Imperial Series and is inspired by our desire to thank Brothers everywhere. Without our Brothers, we would have taken the blame for everything as children, wouldn't have know the inside of an ambulance, and never understood the fear a good ghost story can cause a young child. This Brother is appropriately big, intimidating, and unbalanced with unrestrained quantities of hops for a head slap of beery ferociousness. ... Because Brothers Matter.

IBUs: 1 billion"

Lovely beer.
