COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beard of Zeus is a super hoppy India style Pale Lager. We heavily hopped the final runnings of a Peaches and Créme batch with Zeus hops and then lagered it. Small amounts of bitter orange peel was added to provide subtle sweet flavors to the beer and enhance the aromas of the Zeus hops.

One of the very last beers sampled at GABF 2012 with Andrew and Moreau. Notes of pine, citrus, fresh hop. Nice IPA and one of my fav shorts offerings at the festival.

Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy gold with some creamy head. Hoppy nose, some malt sweetness, a little sugary, a little yeasty, clean. Sweet, malty flavor, honey, pine, orange, lemon. Medium bodied, zesty finish. Nose could be better, but otherwise this is nice.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, pineapple, pine, and grapefruit. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and tropical fruits. The finish has moderate pine and a touch of grapefruit. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a really nice IPA.

GABF 2012. Yellow. Bright hop aroma with a fresh hop aroma, like a wet-hop ipa, with a floral character. One of the better IPAs I had at GABF.

markwise (4601) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2012
On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is a nice light malt with a bit of citrus and a big punch of Zythos bitterness and grassiness. Flavor is similar with citrus up front and a big hop punch. The finish is somewhat abrasive, but the initial flavor is nice. Medium in body and interesting at first.

jkwood04 (4426) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 19, 2013
12oz bottle in a stemless bulb. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of floral and citrusy hops plus light orange and a nice caramel/pale maltiness. Flavor really good with a nice citrus component. Average texture. A good beer.

burg326 (4298) - Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Poured a light cloudy orange color with aromas of bread malts, light coriander, some orange peel and light citrus. Flavors are bread and oranges, light hop presence, bitter aftertaste, not the best ipl on the market but decent.

joeneugs (3815) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
12 oz bottle. It pours a lightly hazed pale gold color with a fizzy white head. The aroma is oranges and grass with some green onion and light florals. The flavor is the same. The orange is thankfully kept to a minimum with more dank onion and grass. A decent amount of citrus bitterness with hints of orange sweetness. Very flavorful for a low gravity lager. A bit messy, but interesting.

HonkeyBra (3638) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2013
On draft at the GTMW2013 preparty. Pours a pale hazed yellow with a small white head. Orange peel and zest on the aroma, with notes of pine, tropical fruit, some floral notes as well. Flavor is bitter, focused on resin and pine hops. It’s light, dry, with maybe a touch of bready sweetness. Light bodied, spritzy carbonation. Finishes dry. Nice.

DiarmaidBHK (3616) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle from Siciliano’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. A bit of orange on the nose. There’s a hint of floral on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but nothing spectacular.
