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.

052914 on the label. I assume this is a bottled on date. or at least I hope it is that rather than a best before. mailed to me from a trading partner in CA. bomber into tulip.

A: pours a fairly hay reddish hue. head is slightly off-white and frothy. good retention and lacing.

S: this is busy and right on the verge of boozy as you can get without actually being boozy. hop citrus and hop pine are right on edge of all the malt caramel aroma I get in there too.

T: a sweet syrup-like flavor starts things off. big. some boozy characteristics work with some resinous pine flavors. however the hop flavors are seriously muddied by the booze and body. finish is a mix of boozy heat and malty lingering unfermentables. not getting my residual bitterness.

M: moderate carb on a very full body. very full.

D: more similar to an American strong ale or American barleywine than a DIPA. too much heat, too much malt, too rough. I am a little confused that this beer is getting 5 after 5 on its reviews and I am that far off the norm. meh, I mean what I say and this brew needs some tuning up.

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.
