A: Vibrant hazy golden that seems characteristic of all of KRBC's IPAs with thin white head dissipating to a very minimal ring around the glass.
S: Bit citrusy grapefruit, guava, and stone fruit aromas. Really a clean aroma... fantastic and loud hop presence. I can see this being my favorite part about this beer... it's really quite nice.
T/M: Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. A very clean beer. Mild malt and carbonation lead into candy malt sweetness reminiscent of the malt profile of Zombie Dust. Mid-sip is lightly bitter and full of juicy fruits and the finish is mild, giving way to another wave of stone fruit and pineapple.
O: Really a great beer. Very glad I got to try it, but probably not something I'll go through the trouble of trying again, although I'd happily do it given another opportunity. This really drinks like a big cousin to fresh Zombie Dust with the same almost cotton candy sweetness from the malts showing up in both brews.
