Dark copper, clear, topped with a nice white head and sticky lacing. Doesn't smell like a whole lot, is Zeus primarily a bittering hop? just might be. The taste is a little more representative of the style, bitter and fruity, slightly sweet. I think this purpose of this series of beers is to showcase the hop while not making a deliberately well rounded beer. A better than average IPA, I love the concept of showcasing hop varieties, be it good or bad.

4.13/5  rDev +13.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into one of my pint glasses. This beer pours a clear, deep amber, copper color with lots of little bubbles rising to the beer's surface. Has a nice, fluffy white head that is a good 1/2 inc when first poured. Excellent head retention here. Excellent lacing here too. Aromas of piney, floral, resinous hops with hints of spice along with slightly tasted caramel malt. Taste is pretty much the same, with nice piney, floral, spicey, resinous hop bitterness upfront followed by slightly toasted caramel malt sweetness. The ho flavor is big and bold and certainly dominates the flavor profile but unlike some other hop flavor dominating IPAs it is not overly bitter. Has a slightly crisp and chewy, really smooth. medium bodied mouthfeel with light to moderate carbonation. A very good and well balanced IPA with superb drinkability.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH IPA glass.

A: Golden-amber clear, with a fine white head and gentle effervescence.

S: Dry-spicy hops. Floral and pleasantly aromatic. Very nice!

T: Mm. I see why Sam Adams saved this for last. Definitely the most hoppy -- and delicious -- one of the set. Who knew I liked CTZ so much? Aftertaste is long, lingering, citrusy, and bitter.

M: Lacking the caramel stickiness of its brethren, this might be why I like it so.

O: Highly recommended. By far the best of the batch, if the thinnest and most astringently bitter.
