A - Nice brownish reddish body. Darker then most IPA's, lighter than some APA's. Good foam head when poured aggressively, lingers for a decent amount of time.

S - Hop intense - citrus and pine notes are well balanced, neither seems to dominate.

T - I usually like APA/IPA(s) with more citrus flavors than pine, but this is one of the exceptions that tastes more earthy/piney and still fantastic.

O - I live within a few hours of 3 floyds, and sadly this is one of the first beers of theirs that I have tried. I am looking forward to the Zombie dust and I plan to make a trip to the Brewery. I think the hype about 3 Floyds is legit. Prost!
