Most comments about Ale Ya mirror my comments about Zeus.

Better than theur Zeus offering. Not special but better than Zeus. Again Enjoy By is a betterm beer, not sure who got jerked off at BA to give such a review. Decent beer, Worthy of a 92 maybe, but 97 is way to high (313 characters)

Tulip glass: this 9.0 bomber pours exquisitely. Balanced scent between sweet to floral . taste delivers smoothly rich flavor s . overall a true contender. Cali is Bakersfield too. (179 characters)

Poured from a bomber bottle into a globe glass.

L - Medium gold color with orange highlights. Slightly hazy. Off white head is thick, sticky and persistent. Lots of lacing on glass.

S - Aroma is dominated by hops, which are grapefruity and earthy. Not much malt aroma, but there is a nose-tickling alcohol presence that implies high ABV.

T - The taste of fresh, grassy and grapefruity hops infuse the beer. There is a small earthy note to the hops, but not as apparent as in the smell. There is some low bready malt behind the hops. The finish is dry and hop-infused. Alcohol doesn't contribute to the flavors.

F - Medium body with smooth, moderate carbonation. Super high hops bitterness. Strong alcohol burn.

O - This is a strongly-flavored and aroma-ed beer that is all about fresh, citrusy hops. I personally would like a little more malt in a Double IPA, but it's tough to find fault in a beer this good. (925 characters)

Above average double IPA. Good citrus tones, that malt that is there is subdued and makes a nice subtle contribution. My go-to when I want lengthwise. (150 characters)

Overall run of the mill beer. Mildly enjoyable taste with a lightness up front, but a strong alcohol burn on the nose and harsh aftertaste. Some pluses and some minuses make an overall average beer. (200 characters)

Very fruity on the nose and tongue. Easy drinker for the high abv. Does leave an intense alcohol taste in your mouth after a while. Glad to see Lengthwise stepping up their game! (178 characters)

Their best beer in my opinion, very bright citrus flavors and aroma yielding to very little bitterness. Dangerously drinkable for being such a big beer. (152 characters)

As the brewer told me, this is the product of a messed up batch of Zeus. Not much of the Zeus flavor remains, I even think they tweaked the malt a bit. The mosaic adds a characteristic that makes it stand out from all of Lengthwises other IPAs.
First sip is an earthy yet citrusy hoppy adventure. And on the back end you get a slight malt, not so much as to put you off, but enough to let you know this beer has a body.
All in all, I drink this at least weekly, spoiled by having a local brewery who really knows their IPAs. (524 characters)

This seasonal brew straight out of Bako Cali is for the serious craft brew enthusiast. With a big-britches ABV of 9%, the unfiltered deliciousness will sneak up on any daily brew sipper.
Give it a try, then review it for yourself... Just remember to bring your sober driver like all respectable drinkers do. (307 characters)
