An extremely well balanced Pale Ale. Some may call it an IPA, and it could easily be put into that category. This is my go to beer whenever it's available!

I have had this several times from bottle and draft. It is always tasty but the newer version really rock. They changed the hop schedule and it still has a great flavor and aroma but less bitterness. Much more like a big, bad, pale ale.

The nose on this beer is amazing. This is apparently the first batch of their new brewhouse....absolutely delicious. Tropical hops with note of mango and pineapple. Wozers

Bottled 1/20/15 enjoyed 2/2/15

Appearance: Clear orange, white head that leaves nice blotches of lacing.

Aroma: Huge citrus notes. Grapefruit juice, orange peel.

Flavor: Dominant hop flavor of citrus juice. Hop bitterness is very smooth, practically no astringency. Grain bill comes through as a great mix of light breads.

Mouthfeel: Medium-low carbonation, but still a dissipating and refreshing finish with no lingering astringency.

Overall: As good as or better than any APA on the BA top list I've had. PsuedoSue ain't got shit on Zeke.

The beer comes in a rich strawberry color, a dark reddish amber.

The aroma hits of sweet citrus, pine, spicy resinous, some sweet floral, and a caramel sweetness. A touch of tropical.

The flavor follows with a big general theme of spicy resinous pine. Then onto lots of grapefruit, orange peel. Almost an orange candy with its touch of sugary sweetness.

A beer that reminds me of Three Floyds, Pipeworks, and La Cumbre's hoppy.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy amber brown with a large white head. The aroma is full of hops and malt. The taste is hoppy and is well balanced. A real good beer.

From a keg brewed on Nov 9, 2015 and purchased Dec 10, 2015. This is one of my favs! I picked up a 6-pack a few months ago and was very impressed so I tried a keg. Every beer I have had from this brewery has been outstanding! This is a clean, crisp, full bodied pale ale with expressive hoppiness and rich, round maltiness. This is a IPA lovers beer. Fantastic
