The aroma was tremendous and the citrus notes are really what separate this beer from others. The citra hops are distinct as the hop profile stays with you in the after taste. Always smooth and a FFF classic. Pine notes along w/ citrus on its finish. Tremendously well balanced so that neither overpower your senses

Appearance is that of a slightly darker unfiltered wheat beer. Hazy amber color.

A bottle was given to me and I had no idea it was a “highly rated” beer when I sampled it. The guy who gave it to me said it was awesome and another beer geek said the same thing about it before I tried it. My overall impression of Zombie Dust was… “yeah, it’s good but is it really any better than Alpha King?”

Clear, peachy-amber in hue with an off-white rock star head. Good head retention and equally good subsequent lacing. It is an attractive looking beer… but aren’t most hoppy beers!

Sugary-sweet tropical and orchard fruitiness surprised me and kind of muddled the “brightness” citrus and grapefruit notes from the hops. Biscuit/toast maltiness is noticeable as well. Hop-forward but balanced. A lovely aroma, plenty complex and inviting.

Hop bitterness is moderate… plenty of flavor though, citrus, pine, grapefruit as well as tropical and orchard fruitiness. And, like the nose, sweet biscuit, toast and some caramel. A tasty beer… a nice pale ale but I don’t get the high scores here on BA.

Medium in body, standard for the style, moderate carbonation…

Overall, like I said, tasty… good. Really good I guess. It’s just a pale ale. Thanks for the bottle Rod!

First off let me say this is not your fathers beer. I have wanted to try this one since I saw it's name for the first time. It quintessential Three Floyds.

Beautiful orange amber in color. Two fingers of rocky off white head emerges from a standard force pour. Thick waves of lace stay on the glass as the foam slowly fades. Nose is exuberant with bursting pineapple and floral resinous notes. Pine and dandelion comes through as well. With first sip I am taken by how refreshing this beer is initially. The hop profile of this beer really builds with bitter bite. This brew really has nice malty balance while letting the hops shine. Very juicy as the citrus plays nicely. Gets piney and prickly on the back of the tongue as it finishes. Mouthfeel is not without the appropriate bitter bite and a really nice tingle that is unique and very enjoyable.
