Pours pale copper in color with a respectable off-white head. Lacing clings handsomely to the glass as the head recedes. Aroma smells of mango, peach, grapefruit, and pine. I wish I could say the flavor was as fruity and complex as the aroma; alas, I find it difficult to discern much besides the bold flavor of pine resin. Grapefruit is appreciable, granted, and some bready malt does come through in the finish once the hops have subsided, but it's a struggle to gauge anything more. This IPA is true to form, with over-the-top hop bitterness relentlessly accosting the taste buds. If you love DIPAs, you'll probably love this. I don't love DIPAs, so this doesn't do much for me.

Well, gonna keep this one simple. Started out great in the nose. Piney, grassy, perhaps a bit resiny. Overall not too strong, but very pleasantly present.

Taste follows the nose, pretty strongly at forst, but then retreats a bit. But, here it comes...
I like this one better than Zombie Dust. Yes, I said it.

A good one. I like it. I'd drink it again.
