Poured from 64 oz Brickstone growler into a Jester King pint. Thanks mom & dad!
A- pours a dark caramel with a 1 finger off-white head. Small bubbles of lacing linger on the glass.
S- nice caramel, big citrus aromas, some spice and pine in there as well.
T- nice caramel, biscuit, some spice almost rye like?, some citrus but more pine from the hops than citrus.
M- medium body and carbonation. Big malt body, slick and smooth.
O- #1 Pale at GABF 2012. Not better than ZD in my book but not far behind either. ZD has more citrus flavor. Opened growler after about 48 hours and not a very crisp feel, but not sure if this is from that or just how this beer is.
Serving type: growler

There has been a lot of buzz about this one since winning the gold metal. Some would suggest it is on comparable footing to Zombie Dust. Gasp!
Appearance - The beer was a light coppery color with a bubbly white head.
Smell - The citrus in the aroma is very apparent. I detect fresh oranges, resiny hops, and a certain measure of Earthiness.
Taste - On the initial taste, I detect grassy grapefruit, lemon, pepper, and orange rind. It is a bright example of the style, and is mellow enough to be a pale ale. The aftertaste is resiny, with the hops growing progressively more bitter and perhaps dry.
Mouthfeel - The carbonation was modest, brushing the tastes off of the tongue nicely.
Overall - It is worth noting that I gave this beer a higher score than Zombie Dust.
