Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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

As with many Short's beers, an adventurous flavor profile. Neat and clean, with strong hints of cigar and pine with a hint of orange. It lingers with a pleasant aftertaste. Not big flavor but lots of subtle overtones.
