Big thanks to Azurescens for sending this as an extra in a trade.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy orange color with moderately high carbonation. About 3/4" of off-white head forms that has nice retention and lacing.
Smell: A hoppy pale ale. Lots of citrus, orange rind, grapefruit. A nice amount of caramelly and biscuity malts to accompany. Very nice.
Taste: A nice malty, caramel sweetness up front, followed by excellent orange and grapefruit rind and other citrus notes. Extremely well balanced, but does lean towards the hops side. And the hop character in this beer is very tasty.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Between light and medium bodied, with nice fine carbonation. A bit fuller than many pale ales out there. Overall, the best example of this style I've tried. Really reminds me somewhat of Gumballhead as far as hop character, but unlike that beer, this has a nice malted barley presence to balance that wheat doesn't provide. Very impressed.

Ahhh, Zombie Dust. Reminds me of what Alpha King used to be like before (IMO) they changed it. This is a really great beer, but it still makes me scratch my head how it gets a 100, and is so high up on the top 250.
A-Looks just like any other pale ale, but its got this cloudy haze I enjoy, and the head is super fluffy like it came out the tap.
S- Straight pineapple peach graprfruit yumminess. Havent smelled a beer that smelled this good since Victory Hop Ranch(HR was better IMO) Definition of hop bomb.
T-Wow, this is tasty. Its got flavor enough to make me think its a DIPA, which it definitely isnt. Big pine and citrus flavor. Maybe a lil peach or mango, Its bitter, but I wish it was just a tad more. Very sweet. Zero malt flavor, but then again, Im pretty sure thats the idea.
M-The only place where Id say its lacking. Its appearance and explosion of flavor leave just a bit heavier mouthfeel to be expected.
Overall, its a solid offering, but just like every other 3F beer, it costs too much and is over hyped. Reminds me of Two Hearted, and thats at least 3 bucks cheaper and has more ABV.
