[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.

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.
