11-4-07 on tap at Uncle Billy’s. Soapy hops smell with a nice sweetness to it. Translucent golden amber with nice head and lacing. Strong "kick you in the ass" bitterness. Surprising for a local beer.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 Tap at Flying Saucer. Typical IPA color. Typical IPA nose. Typical IPA taste. Untypical IPA for Texas...which is very good indeed. On Cask at Beavers (07_12_08). Mouthfeel is a bit creamy with tiny bubble that makes for a wonderful IPA. Nose was huge hops with some nice floral (hibiscus) aromas and piney notes as well. Flavor was very hoppy, but well integrated into the malts, more so than the draft version. 8/5/8/4/17 = 4.2

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with an average white head. Aroma of toasted cereal, honey, citrus, peach and light florals. Flavor of citrusy hops, caramel, nuts, and some pine.

Clear golden colored pour with an off-white head. Nose is certainly hop forward, nice and piney. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Flavor dominated by the hops.

(Tap @ FS HOU): Pours a golden color, clearish. Average head, whitish creamy color. Hoppy aroma, real malty. Sweet malty, balanced taste. Not hoppy except a bitter aftertaste. Bitter early taste, smooth mid-taste and bitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2008 On draught at Draught House in Austin. Poured a clear gold into the glass with a thin white head. Aroma was very piney and full of resin. The flavor is nice and bitter with a sharp, dry finish. 2008s batch seems a bit more balanced to me

NOT a fan of this IPA. At first smell I thought this would be a decent IPA. It had a piny aroma with hints of citrus. Once I tasted it though I sang a different tune. Much too bitter for my tastes. Everything seemed ok about this beer except for the taste.

DaMenace123 (253) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Tap at Ginger Man, Houston. Strong piney hop aroma, flavor is the same, strong pine, citrus hops. Fairly bitter. A bit too much I thought.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 On draft at the Gingerman. Poured a medium to dark golden pour, with a quickly fading head and nice lacing. Smell is outstanding, and permeates as I’m carrying the pint back to my seat from the bar. A big whif of intense hops, along with hints of pine and cedary goodness. Taste is very nice, with a good sweet malt background that gives way to a piney, sappy, hoppiness. Nice bitterness up front, but finishes pretty smooth with a lighter nice bitterness and some luscious grapefruit-iness in the mix too. Overall an awesome IPA, and I wish they’d bottle this stuff!
