Finally getting around to writing a review for an old stand-by. 16 oz, anywhere from $8-12 for a 4pack. I believe this is 5 weeks fresh. Poured into a Tulip glass.
A: Golden amber and 100% clear with pure-white head of 2 fingers and lovely retention and lacing.
S: Piney and grassy, Some lemon citrus but overall not much fruit flavors on this aroma, reminds me of the SNPA smell, but definitely unique.
T: Piney and grassy, true to the nose, with a LOT of bitterness. Almost to the point of being slightly unbalanced, as there is not a large malt backbone to counter the high IBUs. Finish is very clean and dry though.
M: Smooth, clean, light, crsip, refreshing.
O: A great summer beer, a lawnmower beer if you will, that you can session and enjoy on a hot day. Refreshing as hell. A little too one-dimensional to be great, but it accomplishes what it sets out to, and I'm a fan.

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.

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
