my first 5. Got this beer at evergreen liquors in lou., KY. pours a true pale (actually almost more towards a golden) with a tight white head. aroma is floral, citrusy, and slightly malty. The citrus and floral characteristics come forward in the taste in the beginning, but the balance is pretty delicate for a IIPA with this much "hoppiness." The malt holds its own until the dry hop finish takes charge. Almost no detectable burn going down. Is this beer really 9.4%?? outstanding

Bottle. I actually reallly like this one. Smooth, crisp, piney and floral hop flavors without any bitter bite. Very nice.

Thanks to Honkeybra for this one. Crushed with Jakebra. Not as huge of a beer as I expected. Very smooth with some nice bitter hop presence, but I wanted to be knocked on my ass by it.

has a yellow/light gold color. Smells of intense sweet hops. A nice weed smell to this one. Tastes of hops with a little bit of a sweetish undertone. Has a nice bite in the end that makes this an overall pleasant experience.

I bought a single bottle instead of the normal 4 pack. I kind of wish I had bought the 4 pack, but this was a damn good Double IPA. Pours clear gold, with a thin white head. Awesome aroma of citrus hops. Nice bitter flavor. I liked it. Well done.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2012 Quite bitter. Somewhat piney maybe. Fairly dry, especially in the finish. ABV is hidden. It’s a really nice brew overall.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2009
February Houston Tasting. I think this is from kp, but I could be wrong...was pretty hammered at this point of the tasting. Hazy yellow pour with thin head. Hops, flowers and citrus on the nose....much the same on the flavor, with some decent bitterness on the finish. Easy to drink DIPA.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle, courtesy Tampa crew. Pale hazy yellow pour, thin white lacing, smallish head. Big on hops in the nose, very bitter, some herbal tropical notes. Thick oily hops in the flavor, with a dry graininess, some slight greasy salty meat, and some bready notes. Nice and full-bodied, very textured and unique.

Pours light golden with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of orange, wood, pine, and flowers. Taste is lightly resinous with notes of orange and resin, crackery malt. Mouthfeel is full bodied with lush carbonation and moderate resins.

Pours a transparent golden-orange with a small soapy white head. The aroma was of pine nose with a little resin and a heavy dose of exoticism (mango, guava, grapefruit, and orange) from the heavenly hop side. The flavour was strong with an upfront pine bite, followed by subtle grapefruit and strong pineapple finish. The pineapple lends a sweeter brew as a result. The alcohol is very well hidden. Overall,, exceptional beer!
