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.

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.

On tap.
Excellent head over a lightly hazy copper-amber body that is topped by a durable off-white head.
This has a very earthy-hop mix that is not my cup of tea.
Moderate+ bitterness for style.

absolutely terrible. from the reviews here, it would seem that i just got a bad bottle, but who knows. this tastes like straight vodka. huge alcohol burn / taste. same for the nose. only a faint bit of tropical hops.

Reviewed 5-25-15. Dogfish head tulip. Bomber dated 1-20-15.

Appearance: Pours a bright copper with 2+ fingers of fluffy sandy colored, thick head. Very active carbonation. Obscure lacing.

Aroma: Super tropical. Resiny. This is a pale ale? (My allergies are acting up, but this is VERY aromatic). Sweet. A little alcohol. Still, not as aromatic as other reviews would make it out to be.

Taste: Malty, bitter arrival, slightly sweet and fruity middle turning to an extremely bitter and lingering finish. Really bitter taste lingers.

Mouthfeel: Pretty hefty. Heavier side of midweight; less carbonated than the appearance lets on.

Overall: Too hoppy for a pale ale, a bit malty for an IPA. Don't know that I'd buy this again. Alcohol on the aroma was very mild, but all told, I still like the Boston Ale, SNPA, and Columbus Pale better.
