Citrus Hoppy Ale
This one is full of citrus flavors. This beer was made for my wife (the other founder of Optimism) who loves it. 6.0%
Story Behind the Name
Conceived by a close family friend of the owners, the name Zest marries the citrus characteristics of the beer with an optimist's lust for life.
All day all year beer
Why We Don't Call It That
Zest defies the common perception of IPAs as overly bitter and reserved for beer geeks only. In reality, its mild bitterness and fruit-forward character appeals to seasoned beer drinkers and new beer drinkers alike.

Aromas & Flavors
IPAs have become such a wide-ranging style and new hop varieties have such diverse flavors and aromas that it’s hard to make just one variation. Our second IPA, Zest is packed full of citrus and tropical fruit aroma and flavor.
