3.2/5 rDev -24%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: pours a nice solid orange color, with about 1/2 fingers worth of very slight tannish/white head formation, that dissipated rather quickly. there is still some transparency, as you can see the outline of your fingers from behind the glass.
S: something seems awefully wrong here. i get a big blast of spiciness mixed with spoiled pineapple juice. there is some hints of tropical fruits that lie in the background, and some type of oil. it honestly smells like baby food. there is a decent alcohol burn to it as well. balance is wayyyy off (I'm being generous with this score)
T: much more appealing that the smell. i get a big malty backbone, resin, oil, hops, flowers, peat, and a touch of citrus and pineapple.
M: on the lighter side of medium bodied, it leaves a slight alcohol tingle on the gums and a piney and peat aspect on the palate
O: something is not right with this brew. and I can't find a bottled on date, but I feel like this one has fallen off for receiving such high reviews. (I did have one Zombie Dust before this, which I suppose could have thrown my taste buds off, but I really don't think that is the case).
