Big thanks to Andrew for sending this one my way.

12oz bottle.

A - Pours a hazy golden orange with a one finger fluffy off white head. There is a good amount of head retention, but lacing is minimal...

S - Lots of citrus fruits come through. Grapefruit, mango, orange, and a hint of pine. Scent is very inviting...

T - All the same culprits that came through on the nose. Mango, grapefruit, and orange. While the citrus hid the malt on the nose, it is evident here. Just enough to keep this from being a hop bomb. Finishes extremely smooth with light hop bitterenss. Again, the malt keeps the finish from being overly bitter. This one is delicious with a ton of citrusy hops and just enough malt to keep this balanced. Fantastic...

M - Very smooth. Medium body feel with a good amount of carbonation for the style...

O - Been wanting to try this one for a while, and glad I finally I got a chance. Definitely lived up to the hype for me. Would drink this all the time if this was available in my location. FFF knocked one out of the park here...

Had this beer plenty of times..and there are more than enough reviews here to solidify how good it is, but have one last bottle here..and seeing Mr. Barnaby Struve at Haymarket brewery today prompted me to review this one proper.
Pours a nice dark hazy straw/golden tone. Beautiful head and lacing.
Aroma is a beautiful mix of Citra..and all things Citra. Grapefruit, lemon, caramel, bread, touch of white grape.
Flavor is also really well balanced. Grapefruit, white grape, caramel orange, lemon, honey, intermingle with a nice biscuit background for balance.
Too many reviews here for me to elaborate on this brew too long, but overall.. beautifully constructed and now a new stalwart for me.

Appearance was fine. Nothing to write home about; no complaints.

The major problem was the nose. I've had this beer on draft form two different bars in Chicago and both times I could not finish even one pint. This beer has an overwhelmingly body-odor-like aroma. The smell was dense and lingering. All I could think about were the summers I've spent in crowded eastern european subways.

Generally I love FFF, but I will definitely not be drinking ZD again anytime soon.

Now this is crazy... this is crazy! It's like that one chick in college who was easy to pull; she was pretty, she was freaky, but goddamn was she crazy! I mean, enigmatic and unpredictable. Like, she might poke a hole in the jimmy hat "crazy!"

Sippin' on this, Raul like it, but he doesn't know what to think! Smooth, sexy, sleek, devilishly tasteful...but at the same time, hog shit wild!

Raul like it, but he scared!

Yeah buddy!

My Updated review gives Zombie Dust a 5.5.
It ain't going down in score I promise that! Cheers!

Can I give a10 out of 5 for the smell of Zombie Dust!
This I'd the most addictive smelling brew I've ever had the pleasure of drinking! ( over and over).

Color is just as it should be, nice head, smooth lines while drinking.

You can smell this beer from 5 feet away, and the smell is Citrus heaven.

Very flavorful, sharp grapefruit, oranges and hops. But not the smack down of sweetness you'd expect.
Finish is smooth as silk and begs you to buy some to take home!
Best overall tasting APA I've ever had!

Thank god for Indiana craft beers!!!
