Drinking a fresh one right now as I review this.
I'll never forget the first time I had this. I was new to craft beers, though I knew what to look out for. As a noob, I found myself taking sip after sip of my glass, getting a lot of flavor, but not enough of it, so I wanted more.
Living in IL, I take ZD for granted sometimes, as FFF releases it whenever they can. I don't hunt for it all the time, but when it's on sale at the brew pub, or if I see it on a shelf, it's a special treat.
I'm a single hop guy, I like to experience the pure flavor of a single hop in all its glory. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy complex beers, but that can get very subjective at some point.
It looks wonderful for an APA. a bright amber hue, head that sticks to all sides of your glass, never liquefying, but clinging on as proof to the solidity of this beer. It smells rich. It smells of that signature FFF taste. It tastes of the signature FFF beer, but with a sweet citrus that seems to fight with the bitter finish. Crisp. Refreshing. Sits on the palate for just the right amount of time. Lingering. Begging for another sip. The mouthfeel is medium, just enough to not be chewing gum. So you want more.
I'm biased. Citra and Mosaic are my favorite hop variety. But if you enjoy citra, This is worth seeking out. You'll need the whole six pack.

Enjoyed at the brewery in Munster. It was served with a light yellow color and a medium head that had fair retention. The smell was largely fruit, and especially tropical fruit. The taste, as others have said, more resembles that of an IPA as there isn't a whole lot of malt to balance it, but the fruit flavors are great, and it starts off sweet (but not too sweet) and does finish with some bitterness. It's moderately carbonated and goes down very easy. It's very, very similar to White Rajah (which is an IPA) in both smell and taste, but the mouthfeel and color are slightly different. Overall, this is excellent. Yes, it is definitely overhyped as it is not by any means earth shattering, but it is worth seeking.

Stopped in this beerwery on the way back to Detroit from Chi-Town. Bought several cases of different 3 Floyds. This IPA presents a Gold color with a nice head and a super hoppy flavor and finish. Full bouquet aroma and sweet citrusy after-taste. Perfect hoppiness. They should call this brew hoppy rabbit as it doesn't turn one into a zombie.. very nice brew.
