Murky looking damp pale amber with some orange tone. Half a finger of head, sticky lacing in my tulip. Aroma is plentiful citrus, tropical fruits, and some passion fruit. Just an amazing scent. The beer has a great pale base but man does the hop flavor pop. Crisp and citrus like hop flavor that carries through the beer. Tropical fruit flavors, mango, pinapple, passion fruit. The massive hop presence creates just a hint of cloyingness. Typical pale mouthfeel, medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. This really is one of the top pales I've had.

12 oz. bottle, poured into a CBC glass. Much thanks to Duff27 for this beer I was quite excited to try. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a beautiful shade of very light orange. Strikingly translucent clarity. A one-finger white head just won't quit, and lasts throughout my experience enjoying this beer.
The aroma is phenomenal. The brightest, most vibrant citrus I've ever gotten out of an APA. It almost smells like a freshly-cut lime, the citrus is that alive. Sticky, resiny pine notes, like being in a forest. I get a little touch of biscuit in the back end. It's nuts.
Oh Three Floyds, how endearing I find your over-the-top, abrasive hoppiness. The hop presence in this beer is absolutely huge, it totally coats the palate. In the middle, I get a little hint of graham crackers for some nice counterbalancing sweetness. But really, this is all about those beautifully piney, resiny hops. This is ultra-floral, and so smooth.
Carbonation is a little low for my liking, but not too far off the mark. To call this drinkable would be a tremendous understatement.
I drank this bottle while watching one of the penultimate episodes of the most recent season of Breaking Bad. Suffice it to say, Zombie Dust is becoming my Blue Sky. I want to drink this on tap and from growlers. I'm not sure I could ask for more, taste-wise, from an APA.

Picked up at the brewpub. Poured into a FFF XV pint glass. Served at fridge temp.
A. Dark golden kind of burnt orange body, A nice creamy 1 and a half inch egg shell head. Great lacing.
S. Big citrus smells freshly squezed oranges and lemons with some pineapple. Also get some nice grapefruit.
T. Bitter grapefruit and pine, good amount of lemon. Ends with a earthy grainy taste.
M. Feel is crisp slighty thin and well carbonated. Goes down reall easy very drinkable. Very bitter dry finish.
Overall another winner here. Very tasty,light and drinkable. Great single hop APA. Citra hops are amazing. I would definately recommend.

A: Copper in color, firm looking, thin white head of foam
N: Citrus hop bomb up front, tangerines, hop oil, resin, some toasted bread with a slight honey-ish twang.
T/M: Clean spritzy, citrus hops, dominant tangy hop flavors, lemon peel, almost wheat like and refreshing but with a great hop resin that strongly sticks on the palate. The hops eventually give way to more of that great toasted honey-ish character that I find in a lot of FFF beers; subtle notes of fresh pears, pineapple and tangerine.
D: Would make a great lawnmower beer if you're in the mood for a little assertive hop character to go along with that refreshing, spritzy quality.
