I've had zombie dust a number of times now. a few times on tap and I always pick up a couple six packs when they have it at the brewpub while I'm traveling through. poured from the 12 oz bottle into a pint glass it is a clear dark yellow color with a nice crew color head. The smell is citrus and earthy almost (like grassy and wheat). The taste is very crisp and I love citra hops. The beer is very well balanced is a stand up IPA. I'd take it every time.

Thanks to Foofaa for this 12 oz bottle (and its 5 sisters). In a tumbler.
A: The pale ale is an amber color, plentiful with orange and brown hues defining it. Transparent with a slight haze. The head is white and luxurious, coating the sides of the glass with lace.
S: The aromas are juicy but restrained, never losing sight of the pale ale base. That base is caramel and lightly toasted biscuit. The hops though, hold their own and then some. The citra drips with citrus and orange zest, ample bitterness running on par with the malts. Excellent smells here.
T: The balance is the great thing about this ale, neither hops nor malts get the upper hand. The malts are light - bready with caramel richness. The hops - and there is where I want to spend time, are delicious. The orange and citrus flavors are strong, intense even within the balanced confines of the ale. When cold, the malts are bigger. Only when the ale warms do the hops shine through - wait for that part of the ale. A top notch pale ale.
M: Clean and hoppy, with an emphasis on the hoppiness. Orange zest and bold citrus standing out against the surprising malt side. I'm afraid that I'll finish off this six pack one one fell swoop.

Appearance: A hazy amberish gold with a tall white head on top, very good lacing. A very appetizing looking beer, I can't really put my finger on it, it just looks superb.
Smell: A strong tropical citrus and a full bisciuty, bready malt. I could also pick up a light hop spiciness, reminiscent of spiced peaches, but very faint.
Taste: The hops are very pleasant, moderate, smooth bitterness and massive flavor. The dominant hop feature is more topical citrus, with the emphasis on mango. The malt is surprisingly active in the flavor as well, contributing a sweet bisciuty, bread character that plays extraordinarily well with the hop flavor. A lot going on here for a pale ale.
Mouthfeel: Excellent carbonation, a strong tingle that opens up your palate to the hops and gives a nice dry finish, very clean and refreshing.
Overall: This is one hyped ale, and I can see why. It is no doubt of the west coast style, but it is none the less a very unique beer. It is much hopier than any APA I have had, but it is also much more balanced than any West coast IPA. The bitterness is very smooth, but the hop flavor is extraordinarily large, a trend that has been occurring more and more as time goes on. A fantastic ale, no doubt in my mind, I would always keep this in my fridge if I could.

On tap at Macniven's for craft beer week. Poured a very nice mid-deep copper with fantastic head and a bit of nice lacing as it went down. Very nice scent, a wonderful citrus bitter hoppiness with a good malt sweetness underneath. Great flavors, a nice sweet malt with hints of caramel and a wonderfully citrus and slight floral hop finish that stays on the tongue for a nice bit. Wonderfully smooth, as well.

A - Light, straw-colored golden with a massive, creamy white head. The head has great retention and holds an 1/8 inch head throughout the drink.
S - Well put together, some grapefruit but not too bitter. Good sweetness. Nice hop notes, pure and clean. A nice clean IPA caliber of hop presence.
T - The taste is sweet at first with caramel malt and tropical fruits, lemon zest, but there is a nice hop bitterness on the mid-palate and finish.
M - Light body with full, but not overwhelming, carbonation.
O - Great beer that lives up to the hype. I was skeptical at first being that I've never had a APA I've really liked before (except Hoppy Birthday) but this gives the APA category a good name.
