A: Clear golden, medium foamy head

S: Citrus hops, lots of lemon and orange. Not a huge punch in the face of hop aroma that you might be used to from other highly rated hoppy beers but very pleasant nonetheless.

T: Wow. The essence of citra hops displayed in near perfection. Incredibly well rounded, extremely mellow. Orange and lemon up front, clean bitterness to finish it off. Absolutely delicious.

M: This stuff goes down way to easy, it is light bodied with perfect carbonation. Unbelievable drinkability.

O: Certainly the best "pale ale" I've had if you believe that it actually is one.

Three Floyds Brewing Co. & Brewpub - Zombie Dust

Hendry generously provided me with one of these as part of a pick-up so I could take some beers off his hands. Cheers!

Look - Pours a hazy amber orange with a great soapy head. Sticky lacing. Moderate carbonation. My kinda look for this style of brew.

Smell - Aroma a grapefruit hyper-bitter hop with resiny overtones. Smooth maltiness throughout.

Taste - Snappy crisp malt with smooth (grapefruit, orange, sour pineapple) citrus, pine, and resin hops coming in after. Smooth as hell, sweet caramel malts are perfectly balanced.

Mouthfeel - Nice bitter resting on the palate, super drinkable and muted ABV. Ridiculously smooth.

Overall - The king of these kinds of hops, similar hops to the Surly line are present, I love those hops. Super smooth even creamy with a bite and some balls. 100% recommend.

Pours with a three finger creamy head. Very cloudy, amber orange.

Smells of very fresh grapefruit and some subtle lemon zest. A touch of nutty creaminess.

Taste is just fantastic. Highly balanced pine and citric grapefruit notes meld with the dulce de leche sweetness. It stays light somehow through out all the tastes. Definitely a hoppier pale ale, but very well balanced. It has a slightly thin character to the taste but suits its amped up sweet hop profile.

Mouthfeel is a moderately carbonated. Zingy and crisp, slightly viscous.

Overall, this is a fantastic pale ale. One of the best I've tasted and a definite try.

This is one of the best(if not the best) Pale ales out there. One of my personal favorites as well. Three Floyd's does no wrong. It's so flavorful and refreshing. Tons of grapefruit in taste. I would consider Zombie Dust an IPA, and would put it up there alongside Pliny and Heady.
