Big DIPA's are not usually my fist choice. However, Zeus is an exceptional beer. Very well balanced and clean (even with massive hop additions). Very little alcohol warmth and dry finish is enough to trick me into believing that it is a much smaller beer. I usually stick with one tho.

A: deep golden to copper color, thin but creamy head

S: sweet grain, nectarine, light carmel

T: malty sweetness, low bitterness, citrus rind

M: starts moderately viscous but finishes clean and dry with slight alcohol warmth

O: Great beer from Lengthwise, they continue to improve and evolve.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass (carefully, of course, as not to disturb the yeast sediment). I hadn't checked the bottled on date, drinking this 9.4% DIPA almost 2 months after bottling. Last time I had it was on tap at the brewery. This should be interesting.

A - Deep golden hazy color with barely a half finger of off-white head. Retention is very short, but a constant stream of carbonation is always rising from the bottom of the glass. Lots of thick lacing.

S - Very earthy hop aroma. Still smells like a DIPA.

T - The 2 months on the shelf is much more apparent in the taste than the smell. Hop bitterness is still there, but not much hop flavor. Malt sweetness is coming through up front. Finishes with a definite caramel sweetness.

M - Feels pretty thick at first, almost syrupy, but finishes clean and dry. No shortage of carbonation in this bottle conditioned brew.

O - I was expecting to be let down once I realized how long it had been sitting, but I was still very satisfied. A great DIPA from Lengthwise that balances sweetness and bitterness.

Went by Lengthwise Brewing company because I started hearing a major Buzz about This new beer, Zeus Imperial IPA. I was so impressed. This beer is very unique in the fact that, for an Imperial IPA, it has an amazing flavor and there is no huge alcohol aroma to the nose or palate, that you normally get with 10% beers. Very nice, full body and a wonderful hop flavor, nice mild citrus flavor. In my opinion, this is a perfect Imperial IPA! Well Done Lengthwise Brewing Company!!

Was in Bakersfield visiting family and friends and I had the amazing opportunity to try Lengthwise's Zeus IPA. IPA's are my beer and I have to honestly say that the Zeus was the best IPA I can recall ever having. If you have the opportunity, and enjoy a hoppy beer, then I highly recommend the Zeus. I promise you won't regret it.
