Default ever tried Left Hand Brew Co. Twin Sisters?

My friends and I have a weekly beer tasting. My girlfriend bought me 4 beer flights and 4 bombers for our 'anniversary'. Last night I used them and one of those beers was the left hand brew co. Twin Sisters.

It was amazing. A very different double ipa. I got toffee and tea flavors out of it. Well balanced! A little spicy...

What are your opinions?

I NEED to brew this beer. Can anyone help with a clone?
