Notes / Commercial Description:
As our flagship ale, Zeke (thatʼs what we can it), is a text book example of the word “Bad Ass”. A grainy malty yet wonderfully hoppy ale. Loud and mysterious, Zeke is a wheel that is well rounded and perfect for any drinking conspiracy.

absolutely terrible. from the reviews here, it would seem that i just got a bad bottle, but who knows. this tastes like straight vodka. huge alcohol burn / taste. same for the nose. only a faint bit of tropical hops.

A - Deep straw coloe, white lace that recedes quickly to the rim of the glass

S - Grainy malt dominates with balanced (if slightly underwhelming) hop aroma with general citrus characteristics

T - Again, grainy malt hits first. There seems to be a slight astringency, possibly from grain, but feels more like alcohol, maybe a hotness... Hops really seem present just to balance the beer and not necessarily to play. A little sweet, but balanced but firm bitterness.

M - reminds me of SNPA, god weight, although can become heavy and slightly sticky. Again, there's a slight astringency that persists

O - decent pale ale, fairly clean other than slight, very slight astringency/alcohol heat issues. I would prefer more hops, but this is certainly appropriate for style.

Reviewed 5-25-15. Dogfish head tulip. Bomber dated 1-20-15.

Appearance: Pours a bright copper with 2+ fingers of fluffy sandy colored, thick head. Very active carbonation. Obscure lacing.

Aroma: Super tropical. Resiny. This is a pale ale? (My allergies are acting up, but this is VERY aromatic). Sweet. A little alcohol. Still, not as aromatic as other reviews would make it out to be.

Taste: Malty, bitter arrival, slightly sweet and fruity middle turning to an extremely bitter and lingering finish. Really bitter taste lingers.

Mouthfeel: Pretty hefty. Heavier side of midweight; less carbonated than the appearance lets on.

Overall: Too hoppy for a pale ale, a bit malty for an IPA. Don't know that I'd buy this again. Alcohol on the aroma was very mild, but all told, I still like the Boston Ale, SNPA, and Columbus Pale better.

On tap.
Excellent head over a lightly hazy copper-amber body that is topped by a durable off-white head.
This has a very earthy-hop mix that is not my cup of tea.
Moderate+ bitterness for style.

On tap at the open house on 2/16.

Appearance: Pours a clear orange color with a huge pillowy white head. Looks clean.

Smell: Smells of grass, pine, and hops.

Taste - Taste is clean hops and a bready backbone.

Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation. Light mouthfeel and easy to drink.

Overall: Good pale ale.
