Same peripherals as the others, so I'll focus on the differences.
The nose is a bit muted, and the malt seems to muddy it more (and the more of these I try, I begin to wonder why they didn't go with a drier malt profile). The Zeus brings pine needles, hay bales, and lime rinds.
Same sweetish, caramel-bready malt base. Zeus brings a profound (for the series) bitterness wrought of pine sap, citrus peels, grapefruit juice, and spearmint. Resinous on the finish, with a good amount of lingering bitterness.
This is a nice showcase for the Zeus hop, aside from a mediocre aroma, it's a hop that can carry an IPA.
