I love this. It's sweet, hoppy, bitter. Love the can design too.

I prefer this over the Brother personally.

From a 12oz can.

A - golden amber, translucent, ~.5" white head
S - hops - tropical fruit, mango, grapefruit. Some sweet bready notes and caramel as well
T - Begins with some bready malts mixed with tropical fruit, hops and bitterness build a bit throughout, notes of pine crop up towards the finish. Medium bitterness in the finish.
M - medium bodied
O - really look forward to this beer every summer, delicious albeit a tad boozy. Can't drink many of these but am happy to sit down with 2 or 3.

This is a very fruity and delicious IIPA. Fremont is easily one of Seattle's top breweries and this IPA every bit as tasty as the Brother, being a little sweeter with more of that musky Chinook flavor. The aroma is more mild compared to the taste, the hops shine bright over a light malty cushion. A sixer for $10.99 makes this one a winner, easily holds its own in a sea of world class IIPAs even though this one is a sleeper here on BA

Pours a golden honey color. with a one inch dense white head. Aroma is fantastic, hops forward, full of citrus and melons and a little bit of pine. Taste is aggressive and very bitter, drowning out the fruit notes at first but they remain subtly in the background as the bitterness clears. Mouthfeel is oily yet clean, again the bite of the hops clears the palate nicely. This is a very good brew, assuming you enjoy big hops.

Fresh 2016 batch, from a 12oz can.

A- slightly hazy amber with ~3/4" of foam.
S - Tropical fruit with a hint of pine and some caramel
T - What you'd expect from the nose, rounded up front with some bitterness in the back. Boozier than The Brother.
M - Medium/full body
O - a great IPA from Fremont, a bit more balanced than The Brother (which I tend to prefer).
