A very solid, though now familiar tasting pale ale. Pleasant citrus hop aroma that various over to the even feel of the taste. Would pin this as an IPA if I didn't know any better.

The big winner of this beer is it's name and label, highlighting Des Moines' Blank Park Zoo's weekly summer event, Zoo Brew. Great job all around, and another well-brewed and tasty addition to Exile's lineup.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Hazy, pale-golden colored pour, with a thick long-lasting white head that left tons of sticky lacing. Nicely balanced in both aroma and flavor, with a solid malt structure and a big citrusy and resiny hop bite. Medium mouthfeel, with a dry finish and lots of zesty bitterness lingering on the tongue. Another excellent offering from Exile. Well done!

L (4.25) - Nice light amber color. Fairly fluffy head on top
S (4.25) - I get a nice little hop aroma from this. Not especially strong, or citrusy or piney or anything, but just 'hops.'
T (4.25) - I think this is a solid pale ale. No, it's not an IPA. But it is a proper balance of hop/malt. The malt flavor is good, and complemented by the hop aftertaste.
F (4) - Nice texture and easy to drink. Carb level maybe a little low, but not offensive.
O (4.25) - I like pale ales, and this is a good example of that style. It's not a hop bomb and shouldn’t be. I don't really like Exile's core offerings, but I'm digging this latest offerings from them.
