A- Pours a very nice dark orange color, little cloudy.
S- Smells awesome, everything you'd want and expect.
T- Dah...
M- Mouthfeel is great, nice carbonation nice full feel.
Had on draft like 3 nights in a row, each time just blew me away. First time I had it in a bottle it was pretty good probably not worth the hype... But having it on draft just blew me away I had to re-review it. I've never had a better beer than Zombie Dust on tap, and I say that in full confidence.

Really an awesome and unique pale ale. Poured from a 12 oz into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of head, modest retention and decent rings of lacing.

Smell is delightful- some lemon, a little sticky resin but just the right amount and a nice clean grain scent.

Tastes fantastic; I would expect nothing less of a pale ale from three Floyd's. Still that lemon citrus hop characteristic and the same slightly resinous quality but also an unusual flavor that's really familiar but that I dont associate with beer. It's an umami flavor, rich, kinda buttery but not in a gross way at all. Excellent.

Mouthfeel is great too- medium light body, well carbonated but not prickly, not too sticky. Of course this is an awesome beer; wish I'd picked up a few more bottles.

Wow. Wow. Wow.

On tap at Sergio's in Louisville. Had two in a tulip. Quite special.

As soon as it's poured the room smells like fresh hay and grapefruit - amazing!

Easily the best pale ale I've consumed. Fresh, crisp, bitter, and fantastic. Completely wrecks your palate though. I tasted a dopplebock after having one and it barely registered.

12 fl oz bottle, poured into a multi purpose wine chalice.
Pours a deep amber semi translucent liquid with dark orange tints, a heavy 4-5 fingers tall and slight offwhite head formed, very frothy, the foam is thick and rocky in appeareance with strong persistance, small sized bubbles, heavy beautiful belgian laceing left behind.
Aroma is composed of a citric zest blend that tings my nose, green lemon rind, sweet orange, pinapple juice, lemongrass, and pale malty sweetness. the more i smell it the more i like it.
Taste- same as aroma, a very citrusy blend, green lemon rind amongst others, and a well rounded sweetness, bitterness is medium strenght with little persistance, mild aftertaste guava/pineapple like and a refreshing cold sensation is left in throat.
Mouthfeel- Intensely carbonated, medium-light body, alcohol well hidden.
Overall an intensely hopped pale ale, bitterness is not that prominent, but the aroma and taste is all about the citra hops. they are nicely showcased in this brew.
