The legendary Zombie Dust arrives, props to Thecherryman, who really knows how to pack a box with world class finds! With off the charts BA ratings for Zombie Dust, and my Vermont craft beer spoiled palate, I was ready to crack the top after finishing up a late night of work deadlines.

The second the top is popped, the hints are present that something special is about to happen.
Cloudy peach colored goodness pours into the Lawson's tulip with a half inch of soapy white head. Lacing was exceptional and the cap remained until the last sip. There is a dankness in the nose that draws you in immediately: the citrus tones including pineapple and mango are present but not overly assertive, and in the world of six pack beer this is rare.

Taste is a wonderful balance of citrus,piney resinous hops, and just the right amount of bitterness on the dry finish. Medium bodied and expertly carbonated, Zombie Dust dances gracefully over your palate, and the anticipation for every sip builds as you drink this fabulous Pale Ale. Completely worthy of the stellar ratings and all the hype surrounding it, Three Floyds really delivers a world class gem with Zombie Dust and it gets my highest recommendation for hitting all the right notes. Exploding with all citra hop goodness, Zombie Dust is a must have for serious hop hunters!

Fresh. Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Copper. Translucent. Poured a finger head that retreats to a substantial rim that is frothy and a blotchy film. Superb layers of frothy laces that remain the entire beer.

S: Floral. A little citrus and a lot of hops at the end. This is a moderate to highly fragrant ale.

T: The taste is the reverse of the nose. Strong hops hit on the front that gives way to a floral finish. Very hoppy overall, but not very bitter. Slightly piney.

M: Full bodied. High carbonation. Moderately smooth. Leaves a very clean palette.

O: A top-notch pale ale. Very hoppy, but the clean finish makes it great for non-hop heads. The laces are amazing. This ale will open up, especially the smell and taste, so be patient.

I poured this beer into a glass, it has a great looking body the color it has a light amber color body with a very nice 2"head on top that hangs around for a little while and it leaves a very sticky lace on the glass.
The aroma has a very pungent aroma of citrus and pine. The taste is very hoped up, kinda sweet but not over powering. i get a hint of carmel on the back of the tonuge. The mouthfeel is very nice, a little thick but just rolls off the tongue really nice.
Overall, defently in the top 3 APA, i have had.
