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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Yellow-orange body, delicately hazed, with a moderately-sized, white head.

Smell: Faintly toasted white bread slices gently soaked in citrus juices with supporting notes of grain, caramel, and flowers.

Taste: Opens with bready pale malted barley with a thin glaze of sweet caramel. Floral, citrusy hops yielding tones of lemon, tangerine. Medium degree of hop bitterness. Drying and endearingly fruity on the back half and through the near-crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Reasonably malty, fruity hop profile, refreshing and nicely carbonated. If the Burnt Hickory Brewery was a country its chief export would be smiles.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a hazy orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, malts. Taste is citrus, tropical fruits, some malts, light bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a tasty and highly refreshing beer.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.

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.

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.
