Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #35 (Dec 2009):
A bit of haze sits on the orangey-gold color; gets a bit clearer when it gains some warmth. Sudsy head that all beers wish for straddles the inside of the glass. Raw prickly citric rind and pine sap in the nose, West Coast-style all the way. Super smooth, bitty with some substance on the palate. Hops are of the "in your face" style with a nice inner-cheek-hug- ging bitterness and citric bam that makes your mouth pucker a bit. That pucker leads to the desire for another sip. Toasty, doughy, biscuity malts provide a great base, a little yeasty too, but mostly bready. Citric, mint, drying hoppy finish.
Old-school "microbrew" style here, fresh and raw with more than enough flavor to go around. Surpassing the benchmark.

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
