This pale ale presents an attractive orangish-amber hue in the glass, topped by a large cap of persistent foam that drops plenty of lace as it slowly recedes. The nose on this is quite resinous, indeed; look for a big central note of candied orange peel that’s wrapped up in plenty of herbal pine resin. That citric-piney dynamic carries on to the palate, as well, where we get that bold hop character riding atop a satisfying malty core offering a good dose of moderate caramelization. Perceived hop bitterness is nicely firm, and the overall feel of this medium-bodied pale ale is quite close to IPA territory, as it delivers waves of bold hoppy goodness. For pairing options, we’d embrace spicy fare like chicken tikka masala. Most fried foods will match well, too, as will fattier fare which the bold hops should be able to cut through. Duck à l’Orange could be an adventurous choice. Cheers!

Zipline Brewing Company in Lincoln, Nebraska first started production back in 2012, focused on making high-quality beers and building up a sustainable community around those beers that the brewery would be able to support. While the brewery started with just one of their three brewery founders, Marcus Powers, as the company’s lone employee, in just a few years Zipline grew to about 40 employees.

After their opening, the brewery quickly grew to the full capacity of their production system, and they decided to respond to that constraint by focusing on their nearby markets and adding retail locations. Zipline’s first taproom opened up in 2013 adjacent to their brewery in Lincoln, and they opened the Zipline Beer Hall in November 2016, the latter also in Lincoln, but focusing more on a beer-garden vibe. The brewery’s third taproom opened in summer 2017, in northern downtown Omaha, with more of an urban industrial vibe, and Zipline opened their Culture Lab facility (focusing on mixed-fermentation beers and wild projects) there in February of 2019. For good measure, Zipline’s fourth taproom, the Zipline Beer Lounge, opened in Omaha in summer of 2019.

Currently, Zipline produces a variety of year-round brews alongside a wide array of seasonal, small-batch, and barrel-aged beers, including a few that we’ve featured in our Rare Beer Club, such as their delicious MAAANGO! IPA. For more info on the brewery and their multiple locations in Nebraska, visit ziplinebrewing.com.
