Dark copper color with great clarity. There is a half inch of off white head on top. Well there was. Now a fingernail thin layer doesn't quite fully cover the top. Light Brussels lacing. Intense aroma of galaxy hops with a pineapple like scent. The hops are much more subdued than expected after that aroma. It's well balanced with light malt. The mouth is a bit thin but the hops definitely prickle the tongue.

Nice, clear golden amber, with minimal head.
Aroma is funky. Bready and spicy somehow.
Taste is weird and off. Tinge of bitterness. Heavy body but I can't get past the overwhelming gym shorts and perspiration aroma. Revolting.
Maybe this bottle was old or stored in a heated warehouse too long? Will pick up another bottle if I see one to compare.

Zekes is a decent pale ale for sessioning. The beer poured a lighter clear copper with no head and no lace. The scent was slightly malty with some bitter hop flare. The taste is a decent balanced pale ale...sweet malt with bitter hop. Themouthfeel is lighter in body with good so so carbonation. Overall its a good beer....not one for the ages....but good.

12 oz bottle dated 1/30/14 poured into a chalice/pint kinda glass that I dk the name of.
A - pours a nice looking pale orange with moderate head. Decent lacing as you drink.
S - I really don't get anything in the nose. Maybe some mild straw and a touch of sweetness. Some lemon. Nothing too exciting, but nothing off-putting either - which is probably what they're going for.
T - So much more pleasant than the nose. You get a little bit of everything. Some moderate grassy/piney notes finishing with a lemony sweetness. Finishes very abruptly and dry, which I'm not too crazy about. But definitely leaves you wanting more.
M - Mild carbonation and a very solid mouthfeel. Some nice body to it.
O - There's definitely some room for improvement, but I'm a fan. I could see myself drinking quite a few of these in the summer.

Zeke's Pale ale pours like any other American pale ale a bright orange yellow color with just a 1/4 inch of head. Smell is surprisingly hoppy with a toffee like malt sweetness and some gram cracker. Taste was very balanced with just enough hops to keep it interesting but not to leave a lingering bitterness on the tounge. Body was light to medium.
Overall it drank quite well so it was well crafted. I would get it again.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.
No idea who this Zeke character is (please tell me he's a homicidal plumber...), but I guess I'm trying his namesake beer anyway. It pours a clear amber-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises mild orange zest, grapefruit rind, a pinch of powdered pine bark, and a bit of toffee. The taste focuses on the rinds of the aforementioned fruits, with the toffee washing through meekly, all waiting to be finished by a brusque pine-laden suplex. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, an okay pale ale, nothing special, but something that's drinkable enough to get by.
