12oz bottle dated 12/14/11.

Pours hazy copper with an inch-plus head of white. Plenty of tattered lacing and a solid skim coat on the surface for the duration.

Aromatics are a blend of biscuity malt and a hint of pine. Hops are quite subdued for an IPA.

Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel.

Plump and husky malt lead off the palate with some pine bark following through. A decent amount of bitterness but hop flavors are muted.

Finishes with sweet malt, lingering bitterness, and pine bark.

This beer needs more hops in the nose and on the palate. The malt base is also hinting at some wet cardboard already.

Purchased a loose bottle from Whole Foods in Raleigh. Poured into a Sam glass on a hot Sunday afternoon.

A: Somewhere between straw and a copper. Thin, lacey head.

S: Smell is sweet with only a suggestion of any hop content. Didn't expect that from an IPA. Sneak attack?

T: Well-balanced, tasty IPA, although pretty light on hops for what people consider an IPA in these heady days.

M: Thin, but not overly so. Just thick enough to give it a nice body.

O: Not a bad beer at all. It doesn't exist solely to showcase its hops like many IPAs, but instead comes off as a well-balanced beer for a lazy Sunday afternoon that exists in that spectrum of IPAs that aren't too far removed from their Pale Ale and APA brethren.

Fills a tulip glass with a honey amber that becomes murky at the end of the pour. The quarter inch head is creamy, off-white, and long lasting. A fair amount of webbing is left behind.

This one has an odd, light cantaloupe and soapy aroma, that, while mild, is off-putting. The hop aromas are far too subtle for an IPA.

Bitterness is quite high with tangerine flavors. The tangerine returns late and sweet in the finish, which progresses back to a mild bitterness and lingers.
A full body, dry, with soft cotton texture, fizzy carbonation and a quick, sharp bite.

Enjoyable in the afternoon, however, while sharpness adds interest, it does detract from overall drinkability.

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

The pour was a cloudy golden amber with a slight yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, receding to a large collar and large cap of foam thus creating some good sticky lacing.

The aroma was mild and had a slight fruitiness to it with straw malts, a floral hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).

The taste was ever so lightly sweet and a tad bitter with a hint of caramel at first, and then progressed into this extremely bitter flavor that was also a bit sour and had a note of grapefruit with a mildly sweet orange taste at the end. The flavor lingered for an average duration with the sweetly hoppy fruity flavor settling nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a good dry texture and a lively carbonation.

Overall a very well balanced IPA that had the mix of fruit and hops blending extremely well...

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.
