Pours a nice dark straw color slightly amber. Incredible nose to this beer when it's fresh, beautiful citrus, fruit and floral notes with some sweetness, kind of like a nice mountain breeze, I could almost just sit here all day and smell the nose, had I not then tasted how ridiculously good this beer is next. The taste is so well balanced with the hops it makes this by far the most drinkable beer I've ever had. Sweet but not too sweet, bitter but not to bitter. The malts are a slight caramel mixed wonderfully with citrus notes of the hops. Just an incredible example of the pale ale category.

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Review from notes.

Poured a nice strawberry blonde with maple tones. Huge hop floral nose. Tropical fruits, grassy/herbal notes, grapefruit rinds. Very light malt background. The grassy/herbal bitterness dominates the flavor however. I would have preferred more of the fruits. Regardless, a nicely made pale ale.

Thanks to nasty31 on the trade. Poured into a tulip

A - Cloudy dark gold in color with one finger of head. Decent retention

S - This is one of the best smelling beers I've ever had. Tropical hoppy glory

T - Juicy and hoppy up front and balanced and very sweet, wet finish.

M - Perfect mid level of carbonation with a smooth, refreshing finish.

O - Hands down the best APA I've had and easily in my top 5 beers of all. It lives up to the reputation and at $35/case, I don't think I'd buy much else if I lived near FFF.

Recieved in a trade with Chicago John, thanks buddy for the ample stash of ZD. After reading so much love for ZD I am stoked to finally sit down and sip a few. Poured into a tulip. Maybe the best looking brew I have seen, sunset orange with super thick sticky two finger bright white head that clings to the glass leaving beautiful lacing. The nose, maybe as good or better than Kerns Citra, I can just happily sit here and smell this for hours, tropically dense from the Citra, amazing. The flavor profile is citrusy, sweet, balanced, and a tad bitter from the 60 IBU, perfect.The mouth is crisp, clean, and medium weighted, perfect for this holiday weekend at the shore. If there is perfection then ZD is it, the best APA I have ever had. Sadly not available on the west coast, happily sitting with two six packs to enjoy over the next couple weeks. Bravo 3 Floyds, the hype is more than justified.
