look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured a bright orange in color with yellow highlights and a nice finger worth of fluffy head that left plenty of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: lots of fruitiness upfront in the aroma consisting of peaches and pineapples, lots of earthy hoppy notes, citrus coming out too but did have some nice sweet maltiness.

T: great hop profile with woody, earthy, piney grassy qualities, lots of peachy pineapple fruits, good sweet malty backbone that had quite a nice balance alongside lemon citrus accents.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, fruity, earthy, hoppy, and slight bitter finish.

O: really solid pale ale from the mid west. digging it and I'm use to these west coast hop bombs.

Thanks to millerbuffoon for this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

A: Pours a very pretty clear gold with a one and a half finger white head that laces wonderfully. Moderate visible carbonation.

S: Grass, dank, tropical fruit and sweaty/spicy hops.

T: The grassy and spicy hop flavors are forward, balanced by a fruity sweetness and just (barely) enough light malt to create a reasonably balanced beer. Hang is the spicy hop bitterness with a touch of sweet & sticky.

M: Light weight to the beer, but at the same time a sticky dank mouthfeel. Decent carbonation sensation for the style. The ABV is incredibly well-hidden, to the point that I would question the listed value if I was more cynical.

O: Wow, this was really good and thoroughly enjoyable. I'm not sure I would go through the headache to get more, but it does (almost) make me wish that I lived in Indiana again.

Served on tap at Local Option in Chicago, IL

A: Bright gold, small head that fades very fast, but it was poured to minimize the head and maximize the volume, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt (I'm happy to drink a few extra ounces of this)

S: The most pungent tropical fruit hop aroma I've ever smelled in a beer, mango and nectarine, amazing

T: Equal to the aroma, most beers with intense tropical aroma can't quite match the flavor and end up having an overly bitter finish, but not this! Zombie dust packs so much flavor into the beer but remains a true APA, I think this can be attributed to the delicate hand with light caramel malt that balances the beer perfectly

M: Light with lively carb, very easy to drink

O: I don't know what else to say about this beer. Current trends are definitely going towards bigger and better. While Zombie Dust is not an exception to this (it is a pretty strong APA), it does highlight that fact that there are still AMAZING beers that aren't 9% abv. and 120 IBU's.

Huge Thanks to driftlessbrewin for this fresh bottle!

Appearance: Pours a nice hazy orange color with about 1 finger of off-white colored head. There's some decent retention and lacing, but nothing crazy.

Aroma: Orange zest, Grapefruit, Pine, Peach Skin, Apricots, White Grapes, and a hint of toasted malt.

Taste: Nice BIG citrus bitterness up front, with a good dose of resinous pine sap following close behind. There's actually a decent malt-backbone towards the middle to back end. The finish is just loaded with lingering citrus, pine, and overall bitterness. Fantastic.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with just below moderate carbonation. Works perfectly with this beer.

Morey's Bottom Line: This was sent to me in a trade. He said that he picked it up 15 minutes after it was bottled! It's about a week old now, so this is obviously a fresh sample. It ranks up there with Pliny & Heady IMO. The lingering bitterness is a very welcome attribute. Hope to have this one again. Cheers!
