Notes/Commercial Description:
A super hopped American pale lager brewed exclusively with Zeus hops. The wet green dank aroma of the Zeus hops pour out of this beer with sweet hints of orange. Pleasant resiny hop essence dominate the flavor profile transitioning quickly to a bold bitterness that seems amplified due to the light clean lager finish

Pours a hazy dark gold with a bug foamy white head that lingers. Citrus aroma, of orange zest, hops, and a hint of grapefruit. Taste is bitter and smooth, starts a bit floral and orangey, then picks up a big hoppy bitterness and bready yeast, with some creamier malt and sugar. Lingering bitterness. Nice IPA.
