look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Nice orange hue, thick offwhite head of large bubbles and rocky peaks. Mild lacing, nice and light on the carbonation.
S: Fantastic. Citrusy hop character, not quite grapefruit due to the sweeter malt notes but more lemony/mango than anything.
T: Roasted Barley?? in the nose either im confusing a specific bitter associated with porters or else im tasting roasted character in this. The hops have a good parching quality in the middle and rear. That sweet malt character still comes through for me, which can only be the slightest of additions as the srm on this beer would be far less orange if it had what im thinking.
M: Leaves the dryness in the pockets to be sure and the semigunky feeling on the tongue as a good bitter would.
D: I like it, its a good tall boy to put back that wont smash you up too fierce like an IPA.
Serving type: can

Served on tap at Pizano's in the loop in Chicago.
Coarse white head dissipated quickly, but left very sticky rings. A clear, slightly gold-tinged straw color with light carbonation.
Smells of grapefruit and herbal notes. A drop of honey perhaps.
Taste of hops up front, more herbal then citrus on the palate. Some malty sweetness comes through mid-palate, then finishes with more bitterness.
Generally very well-integrated with medium body, but there's a hint of aqueousness on the finish.
Serving type: on-tap

From notes on 7/16/14 at Hopleaf in Chicago, IL
Tap in pint glass
A: Translucent amber. Drinking this side-by-side with Zombie Dust. This has more of a straw color, while Zombie dust has a more copper color. Off white thin head.
S: Relatively muted. Both the hops and malt. Slight piney notes of hops
T: More of a malt presence than Zombie Dust. The finish is dry. No up front single hop presence like ZD.
M: Well carbonated. Medium bodied. Even finish. Extremely crisp and clean.
D: Very drinkable. Nice brew. No overpowering bitterness from hops. More of a malt presence than ZD like bread and biscuits. Does not seem to showcase a particular hop like other APAs. Just an extremely all around well made beer. More even keeled than ZD and overall a better beer.
Serving type: on-tap
