Smells like hoo boy... I opened it up and my alcoholic cat start meowing from across the room, even though it hadn't even been poured. She's not allowed anymore, though. But, seriously I wasn't exaggerating even a little there; the aroma is super intense, and super excellent.
Tastes like a big, fruity citra bomb up front, followed up by syrupy DIPA malt and then a somewhat dull yeast finish that's saved by lingering nodes of apricot and peach. So, basically it starts out like Zombie Dust only more intense (which is amazing), and then it finishes like an above-average DIPA (which is good but disappointing).
Excellent aroma and nice, smooth body, but overall it doesn't hold a candle to the best Midwest and east coast Citras.
