Fremont Brewing // The Sister Imperial IPA // Seattle, WA // 8.5% ABV MYOB IBU
Color: Golden, light for a IIPA
Smell: Grapefruit, pines by the sea, fresh air, spring awakening
Taste: A light body (for the style) with citrus juiciness that doesn't lose the refreshing quality. Hops play the balancing part and never overact - they remain in their places: an enticing aroma, solid body and consistency with a pleasantly bitter and plump ending.
Overall: Perhaps the brightest IIPA you've ever had. An attractive and complex personality that draws you in quick and leads to a slyly strong buzz.
