Had this one at their Tap Room yesterday. It was dry hopped with Cascade.

A: A nice deep orange color with a mild white head. Came from a pump so the head was small.

S: Very strong citrus smell from the dry hopping with a mild touch of malt. The hops very very strong, stayed throughout the entire beer.

T: A huge hit of hops from the beginning followed by a caramel malt flavor that followed the hops perfectly. A nice finish, not to overpowering on alcohol.

M: Nice bitter flavor medium bodied with not to much carbonation.

O: I love the regular Sisters, so having the dry hopped was a good change of pace. This is a very enjoyable beer a good easy drink er nothing to rant about but a good beer.

12oz bottle poured into SNevada pint glass. Bottled on 12/12/11.

A: Hazy yellow orange color. About a half finger of bright white head. Nice carbonation on this one. Leaves some sticky lacing bits on the glass.

S: I get some sweet and fruity hops, along with some bready malt backbone lurking behind it.

T: You can tell that they are using whole cone hops ala SN Torpedo. You get a nice hop bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Lots of pine (actually) more so than the fruit that I initially smelled. I get a bitter mouth coat from those hops leading to a crisp bitter finish.

M: Medium bodied.

O: It's a solid little IPA. Nothing mind blowing, but definitely sessionable. A solid B beer in my book.

Aroma is more yeasty than hoppy, but still inviting. It pours a clear golden, average, but the fluffy white head is quite thick and persistent and leaves quite a bit of lacing. Flavor is fairly hoppy, somewhat bitter, with subtle fruity and yeasty notes. Firm-bodied texture is quite fizzy and lively - you feel this one when it goes down the pipes. Overall, about average for an IPA but still worthy of a try, especially if you are an IPA fan.

12 ounce bottle received from woolyb in a recent BIF. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy golden-orange color with a creamy thick bubbly white head. Thin patchy cap with just a bit of lacing on the glass. Not the best looking IPA, but there's nothing really wrong with it.

S: Good citrus notes up-front, bitter orange oils, mango and some sweet caramel malt. Not too much else going on, it's not a blast of hops nor malt and seems a bit reserved. The citrus qualities are certainly there, not so much in the way of earthy hops though.

T: Caramel malts with a hint of sweetness is immediate, closely followed by some citrus hop flavors. Orange and lemon peels, oils and some floral elements. There's some odd flavor in the finish and linger that I can't quite place, but it's not good at all. Nothing disgusting but still.

M: Lower carbonation, medium-bodied and certainly lots of bubbles giving it a smooth feel. Dry and such an odd flavor in the linger.

Well this was okay. It's not my favorite American IPA but not my least favorite. Middle of the road to the back end, but if offered again I'd take it.
