Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Brought this at 2nd Houston Tasting. Cloudy lemony yellow color, much like a hefe, with a bubbly white head. Fresh citrus hops with floral as well. Crisp flavor with softer hops than the nose. Nice bite on the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2008 bottle at 2nd Houston Tasting, thanks to Zinister. Pours a cloudy yellow with a half-finger white head. Aroma of grapefruit. Taste is definitely grapefruit and maybe orange rind. Mouthfeel is medium, fresh-hop feel with harshness in the bitterness. Not one of my favorite IPAs.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle at 2nd Houston Tasting. Pours a cloudy light yellow with an aroma of melon, factory plastic, and sweet grapefruit. Flavor is a blend of grapefruit and orange that leaves a bitter, but pleasing, film on the tongue. Great mouthfeel; flavors are distributed throughout the sip. A surpisingly light IPA that is nonetheless refreshing and delicious.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Light gold color with a white head leaving good lacing and has pretty good retention. Aroma is mostly of pine, but there are some floral, earthy aromas as well and a bit of grapefruit. Some citrus flavors, but I seem to get a fairly large amount of earthy flavors. Lighter than medium carbonation with a medium body. Flavor wasn’t quite an 8 for me, so it gets bumped down an overall point. Pretty good stuff.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Clear yellow/apricot color. Hoppy citrus aroma with skunk mixed in. The taste was mainly citrus with light malt, mango, and apricot flavors. Bitter medium skunky finish.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Cottony white head on a shimmering gold body with a substantial load of hop particles. Fruity mango and grapefruit, plus fresh resinous hop cones and light pale malt sweetness underneath. Nicely rendered hop bitterness. Assertive, but not coarse or rough. Very skillfully crafted IPA. I’ve been having a major hop craving lately and this beer was extremely satisfying.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Explosion of tropical fruit hop aromas. Litchi and mango. Not at all overpowering on the palate. Nice lasting clean, piney finish.

emacgee (4148) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours a hazy gold with no head. The aroma is very fruity, sweet, hoppy, mandarin oranges, grapefruit, citrus. The flavor is citrusy, grapefruit, mandarin oranges, a little waxy and bitter. Overall a very fruity hoppy aroma and flavor with a waxy bitter palate and lasting finish.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2008
From memory. Hazy and pale gold with a fluffy white head. Tropical fruit hop aroma. Organic, full soft resinous hop grapefruit and lime flavor with balancing malt and body. Gentile and lingering hop finish. Really an exceptional and even sensuous ale.

theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 7, 2008
22 oz. bottle from Zinister. Pour is cloudy cheddar cheese orange [TM] / yellow with visible floating sediment and a nice fluffy, 2 inch white head. Aroma of resinous hops, some citrus (orange) and some pine. Taste is really resiny and earthy hop, initial bitterness is fairly muted and gives way to a very bitter orange peel finish. Nice IPA.
