I had a goblet of The Sister at the UBG on May 31, 2013 and another later that night, from a fresh growler fill, at a pal's house.

Appearance: The Sister pours orange/amber with lots of fluffy white foam and very good lacing.

Aroma: The aroma is probably the best single aspect of the beer. The nose is wet wood, citrus, tropical fruits, and aggressive pine. There is also a sweet smelling malt element present behind the hops at all times.

Taste: The taste is similar to the aroma but very heavy on the pine and bitterness. There is a slight roughness to the bitterness but the finish is very crisp.

Mouthfeel: The Sister is well carbonated. It is definitely more astringent and boozey than I'd expected.

Overall: This is a very good imperial IPA. I think The Brother is much better.

brewpub draft

a: small chalice serving, light amber in color, nicely retained off-white head

s: pale malts structure with a light-moderate dose of caramel sugars, the hops really shine - mostly tropical with a dose of fresh, young evergreen - tangerine, pine, grapefruit, and passionfruit included, sweet and juicy...

m: carbonation light-moderate, light-medium body

t: cleaner pale malts comprise the bulk of the body with a light dosing of more complex sugars, big fruit hops - a combo of tangerine, grapefruit bitterness, young pine, pineapple - richly hopped, bitterness big, balancing without overpowering, quite enjoyable

o: a high-quality dipa that tends more towards the hop side with only a balance of malts, my favored kind
