Beer added by: ChainGangGuy on 04-22-2012

As our flagship ale, Zeke (thatʼs what we can it), is a text book example of the word “Bad Ass”. A grainy malty yet wonderfully hoppy ale. Loud and mysterious, Zeke is a wheel that is well rounded and perfect for any drinking conspiracy.

3.5/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Deep straw coloe, white lace that recedes quickly to the rim of the glass

S - Grainy malt dominates with balanced (if slightly underwhelming) hop aroma with general citrus characteristics

T - Again, grainy malt hits first. There seems to be a slight astringency, possibly from grain, but feels more like alcohol, maybe a hotness... Hops really seem present just to balance the beer and not necessarily to play. A little sweet, but balanced but firm bitterness.

M - reminds me of SNPA, god weight, although can become heavy and slightly sticky. Again, there's a slight astringency that persists

O - decent pale ale, fairly clean other than slight, very slight astringency/alcohol heat issues. I would prefer more hops, but this is certainly appropriate for style.

The beer comes in a rich strawberry color, a dark reddish amber.

The aroma hits of sweet citrus, pine, spicy resinous, some sweet floral, and a caramel sweetness. A touch of tropical.

The flavor follows with a big general theme of spicy resinous pine. Then onto lots of grapefruit, orange peel. Almost an orange candy with its touch of sugary sweetness.

A beer that reminds me of Three Floyds, Pipeworks, and La Cumbre's hoppy.

4.53/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 1/20/15 enjoyed 2/2/15

Appearance: Clear orange, white head that leaves nice blotches of lacing.

Aroma: Huge citrus notes. Grapefruit juice, orange peel.

Flavor: Dominant hop flavor of citrus juice. Hop bitterness is very smooth, practically no astringency. Grain bill comes through as a great mix of light breads.

Mouthfeel: Medium-low carbonation, but still a dissipating and refreshing finish with no lingering astringency.

Overall: As good as or better than any APA on the BA top list I've had. PsuedoSue ain't got shit on Zeke.

On tap at the open house on 2/16.

Appearance: Pours a clear orange color with a huge pillowy white head. Looks clean.

Smell: Smells of grass, pine, and hops.

Taste - Taste is clean hops and a bready backbone.

Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation. Light mouthfeel and easy to drink.

Overall: Good pale ale.

16oz growler, kegged November 28, 2012. Served at around 45F.

Pours slightly hazy amber with a two finger white head that leaves impressive rings of clumpy lacing and holds a good cap.

Aroma is mandarin oranges, melons, fruity, citrus, a bit of banana, belgian yeast character, unique. Very good strength.

Flavor is more mandarin orange, citrus, belgian yeast, banana, melons, bready malt with a bit of caramel, mild alcohol, moderate sweetness, moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little sticky, somewhat creamy, good carbonation.

Very nice Pale Ale, very unique. Is this fermented with Belgian yeast or just a very fruity example of the style? Dunno, but it’s good.

4.15/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Yellow-orange body, delicately hazed, with a moderately-sized, white head.

Smell: Faintly toasted white bread slices gently soaked in citrus juices with supporting notes of grain, caramel, and flowers.

Taste: Opens with bready pale malted barley with a thin glaze of sweet caramel. Floral, citrusy hops yielding tones of lemon, tangerine. Medium degree of hop bitterness. Drying and endearingly fruity on the back half and through the near-crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Reasonably malty, fruity hop profile, refreshing and nicely carbonated. If the Burnt Hickory Brewery was a country its chief export would be smiles.
