Pours hazy Carmel with an off white foam. That 3 Floyds nose hits, this is a great smelling beer, hops fruity with some pine, not a lot of malt for me. Smooth body light/medium. Lemon acidity on sides of tounge right away, then the hit of bitterness, then piney resony after taste with the bitterness fading. Really drinkable. Not as bitter or fruit as Zombie but smoother. Excellent brew.

Golden amber, fluffy white foam. Bursting young citrus, pineapple, hop syrup. Lite dank, great bitterness but it's fleeting. Nice

Faint citra hops but more malt than zombie dust. Solid pale ale
