A surprising find in my go-to beer store.
Pale, chill-hazed gold in color, with a big cap of bone-white foam.
Aroma-big boquet of hops right out of the bottle-super fragrant juicy Citra hops- Amazing!
Taste-Big onrush of juicy citrus hops-white grapefruit with sugar, tangerine notes. A delicate malt bill just barely balances the equation, ending in a citrus-rind and slightly sweet/dry finish.
Outstanding hop aroma and flavor have this hop-head in head-over-heels love. Cries out for a spicy food pairing. A must try for all hop lovers. Embrace the undead!

One of the best beers i have ever had. Totally delivers on the reputation.

Goods : Aroma, Taste, Feel, quaffability.

Appearance: Poured from a 12 oz bottle into snifter. Pale honey colored. Hazy. Few bubbles. Excellent lacing on the sides. Over one finger thick head of off white color. Decent standing.

Aroma: Very strong citrus and flowery aroma. Some wild weed like and grassy. Aroma is so inviting and strong that it puts a lot of IPAs to shame. Grape fruit, piney hops are dominant.
An aroma so strong that it mesmerizes you and never fades.

Taste: Very solid bitterness. Not overly bitter but gives a punch nonetheless. Strong mango presence. Built up on a good malt backbone that keeps the final bitterness totally at bay. Very well balanced example of craft brew.

Mouth feel : Smooth and without any astringency. Extremely easy beer to drink. Moderate carbonation, makes me have some burrps. Very oily and herbal mouth feel. Medium to slightly light body.

This is one beer that invites you to try it as soon as you pop open the bottle and then embraces you into its arms and takes you on a ride to wonderland. A brew i can drink all day without any issue and i would love to do so. So easy in fact that i drank 4 bottles in a go out of my first six pack. And that was when i have had tasting of over 30 beers of super high ABVs. Just pretty well done brew that is the epitome of craft brewing. Very solid aromatics at display and an equally good flavor.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Acquired in a trade from Surge1311. Thanks bud!

A- Pours a slightly hazy honey colored body with a generous off-white head that has some nice thick lacking.

S- Very juicy and tropical. In particular, grapefruit and pineapple.

T- Mango, citrus, caramel malt, and a subtle bitter hoppyness on the finish. Good balance. Finishes smooth.

M- Slightly watery, but very fitting medium-high carbonation.

I can see why this brew ranks as the #1 APA. It's extremely tasty and drinkable.

From: Binny's, Chicago - South Loop, IL
Date: None on bottle
Glass: Standard US pint glass

Zombie Dust is one beer that I feel lives up to the hype. There's an incredible amount of hoppiness compacted in this pale ale base, making this "extra pale ale" quite special if you like the taste of hops (and, in particular, Citra hops). The price is also quite decent at $12 per six-pack. After tasting this beer, I've realized that the concept of rating is worthless. While this is an excellent result of artistry, inspiration, and brewery production management science, it's not an APA that I'd want to drink all the time: Daisy Cutter, Burning River, St. Lupulin, and SN Pale Ale are all other staples I enjoy for other reasons (flavors, aromas, densities). I also need to thank the beer staff at Binny's South Loop for connecting me with their last six-pack from their personal stash, it was really much appreciated.

Pours a tall, 2.5cm head of off-white to beige foam that consists of small and medium-sized bubbles, with above average retention, lasting over two minutes. Head eventually falls to a thick ring around the glass and a large island of wispy residuum atop the beer's body. Lacing left is moderate: a few large random splashes of foam along the glass' perimeter. Body is a deep copper orange, mostly transparent, with mildly active carbonation. Light brings out the body's orange tints and brightens them substantially.

This beer is intensely aromatic, Three Floyds has likely taken the idea of pre-boil, post-boil, and dry hopping to new levels with this beer. The beer smells remarkably similar to an open packet of Citra hop pellets (with all that grapefruit, pineapple juice, mango, and hints of peach) mixed with fresh pale malt wort. In general, the smells tell you, "this is really deep and dank stuff."

Zombie Dust is a pale ale for someone who has a taste for citrus-inspired hops. The flavors are huge and sweet, full of citrus fruit salad that's been lightly touched with malt extract. Tasting opens with sweet pale malt base and hints of sweetened pineapple and grapefruit juice. Mid-palate is where the hop flavors truly shine, bringing out sweetened grapefruit juice, pineapple, mango, kiwi, and hints of peach, all with a medium-intensity bitterness. Back of palate picks up grapefruit, Meyer lemon rind, pineapple juice, and mango with modest bitterness. Aftertaste is quite bitter, with grapefruit and mildly sweet pineapple juice being the major flavors.

Beer is medium-light in body, with superbly gentle carbonation that never feels fizzy, but still manages to foam the beer up on the palate. The result is a smooth, foamy mouthfeel that's as enjoyable as the aromas and flavors. Closes quite dry, with little residual stickiness across the palate, which invites taking another sip.

12 ounce bottle, this just came to the store yesterday afternoon so I'm hoping it's a fresh batch. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color with about an inch frothy off-white head that stays around for a very long time. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice and hoppy, it smells mostly like citrusy hops (grapefruit, mango, tropical fruits), along with pine hops, orange peel, and some light bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some floral/earthy hops noticeable, and a nice lingering bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit sticky, but also very smooth with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good brew, I know I'd buy this again if I came across it. $10.99 a six pack and worth every penny!

I've had this on-tap before. This is my first time trying it bottled. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a beautiful transparent golden with a huge eggshell white head that doesn't dissapear and leaves extremely thick lacing. Perfection on the eye candy. The aroma is a controlled blast of sweet fruits. Lots of mango, grapefruit, peach, papaya, grass, pine resin. The aromas don't exactly smack you in the face, but are spot on and sweet like candy. Very floral. The flavors are bittersweet. Lots of fresh orange peel, pineapple, more grapefruit and pine resin. Finishes somewhat dry, but has a little juice to it. Very earthy flavors. The mouthfeel is unique and wonderful. It's just about perfect. The carbonation is active, and the body is light but creamy and fluffy. The mouthfeel really makes this beer extremely quaffable. Alcohol goes unnotices and leaves you wanting another. Dank.

The craftsmanship to this beer is second to none. It's an extremely well done beer. I don't look at it is as the "end all, be all" of IPAs, but it doesn't have to be. The way this beer is crafted makes it an automatic winner. It's a definitely a magical treat that I would enjoy anytime. Extremely well done.

12 oz bottle poured into a room temp pint glass.

A- Hazy orange color with a 1-plus finger fluffy white, long lasting head and lacing. A good looking pour.

S- Hoppy fruit, lemon and orange rind. Not overpowering, a good nose.

T- Citrus hop with the malt backbone of a pale ale. A bit of pine oil. Pick a citrus flavor, it's in there.

M- Medium body with a good and easy feel. the hops finish with a rush of bitterness. Clean.

O- Easy drinking, flavorful APA that pushes the limits, and it's all about the taste.

Finally got my hands on a six pack of this. I'd heard so many positive things about it, so I'm quite excited to finally be able to review this. It has a dark honey pour, very slightly cloudy with a thin foam head and very fine lacing. Scent of grapefruit, pine, earthiness, and more mellow citrus. So far nothing particularly out of the ordinary. Upon first sip, I figure out what its all about. Extremely well balanced combination of hops and malts that continue to mellow out in the aftertaste. I taste a hint of caramel in the aftertaste too, a really fantastic brew. Mouthfeel is perfect, light carbonation and a certain heaviness to it. Highly recommended!

At FFF on cast. Imperial pint $5

A - Hazy golden orange color color with a big thick white head. A bit hazier than regular zombie dust. Lots of lacing throughout

S - Loads of citra hops. Orange, lemon, slight grassy hop freshness. Strong great nose

T - Lemon, orange, slight grassy hops. Balanced with a light caramel sweetness. Light grapefruit lingers on the tongue with a slight biscuit finish

MF - Medium light body with a slight stickiness. Light hop resin remains on the tongue. Makes it nice and easy to drink. Bit lighter than normal

O - Great beer and ever greater on cask. Easy drinking. Definitely grab a couple of glasses if they have it especially for only $5 for an imperial pint. The nose on this is even better than normal and as per usual, it's flavor packed

Tasted on October 3, 2015 in a Teku glass from a 12 oz bottle dated 9-28-2015. Look is amber gold, with a medium head and nice lingering lacing. Smell is citrus, sweet tropical fruit and pine resin. Taste is tropical fruit and pine resin with hints of earth and grass. Feel is medium in body with a dry and somewhat bitter finish.

A- A nice hazy orange/golden color with a short lasting off-white head, which leaves some lacing.

S- Up front there are obvious notes of pine and grapefruit. More of the piney smell than anything, in my opinion. There is a nice earthy, grassy, floral scent that goes along with this and the other citrus/tropical fruit notes.

T- One of the most well-balanced hoppy beers I have had the privilege of tasting (seems like more than just a "pale ale" though). Tons of citrus (grapefruit) and hops blend with the malt; combined with the floral/earthy notes, this is one hell of a beer!

O- I am so glad I was able to try this. Only wish I had more than one bottle. Hopefully I will land more in a trade soon. ZD is definitely one of the best hoppy beers I have tried, and easily stands up beside Pliny and Heady. At this point, I am unable to decide which I like better....but Zombie Dust is magnificent!

Thanks to Tim from the beer club for bringing me a six pack today at work! Poured into my DFH pint glass. Beautiful hazy orange color with a nice head that give way to some decent lacing. I could smell it from across my desk when I poured it, the wonderful fruity notes from the citra hops! It reminds me a lot of the Laughing Dog citra hop ale they did for Capital Ale Houses 10th anniversary. "I wish it were winter, we could make it into ice blocks and skate on it! And then melt it in the spring time and drink it!" Yeah, wish I had more than a sixer.

A - clear golden straw color with a solid finger of white head that retains only slightly and leaves minimal lacing

S - I'm getting some serious oniony/earthy and citrus hop notes from this bottle (previous bottle was more fruit/citrus)... Pretty strong so it overpowers any effect of malt... Nice clean aroma that gets you excited to drink

T - the hops are in your face... Earthy/oniony to start, with a little hint of some malty sweetness in between before the citrus hops finish it off... They obviously wanted the hops to be the primary target, so the malt character was left very basic and minimal

M - vibrant, not harsh... Almost perfect amount of carbonation for an ipa

O - one of my top 5 IPAs of all time... Definitely should grab this one if you can

I was very excited to finally try this beer. It lives up to my expectations.

Appearance: A nice orange- light copper with a white one finger head and some good lacing.

Aroma: Very hoppy. Grapefruit, pine, pineapple, tangerine, mango, and a little floral.

Taste: Very similar to the aroma. Tropical fruits and pine. A little bit of caramel-toasty malt. The malt becomes a bit stronger as the beer warms, but the hops dominate heavily all throughout.

Mouthfeel: Median bodied and carbonation. The finish is a little dry and hops bitterness lingers shortly. Very easy to drink.

Overall: This is a great hoppy pale ale. It leans more of an IPA. Tons of flavors. I really enjoyed Zombie Dust and something I will happily have again.

After I've enjoyed a total of 3 cases of this beer over the past year I think I'll finally rate it.

It has truly been a pleasure getting to try this beer, and I've been lucky enough to be able to travel to this brewery twice in the past few months.... I can't sing their praises enough.

A&S: beautiful opaque deep copper colored beer. Layers of foamy white lacing, head stays in a thin layer on the top. Powerful citrus (peeled orange) and floral (lemon grassy) scents. Sight tropical and grapefruittyness to it as as well.

T&M: Not super complex, but quite a knock out as far as a bold tasting brew. Taste is very similar to the smell only more citrus. The finish is splendidly bitterness, clean, and dry. Body is medium and carbonation is mild.

overall: Easily the best pale I've ever had, I couldn't think of a better beer to relax with on a late spring/early fall. All the extras with this beer are nice as well: great bottle design and name.

Appearance: Zombie Dust pours a hazy deep orange color and is topped with ¾” of off white colored head that tends to linger nicely. Belgian lacing lines the glass part of the way down the pint.
Smell: The blast of citrus and grassy notes hit the nostrils with force. I think this is going to be a very delicious version of an American Pale.
Taste: The taste isn’t as pronounced as the smell; it has a little more balance to it which is what an APA should be. Hops should be present but they should play nicely with the malt.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied beer that is easy drinking and well balanced, very enjoyable APA. Great job Three Floyds.

Hook up from Sir_Win in Indiana - thanks, man! Pours a hazy, copper, deep-amber color. Humongous off-white head starts boiling immediately, even with a delicate pour; lots of staying power and a ton of nice lacing.

The aroma of this beer, for lack of a better term, is fucking amazing. As soon as you open the bottle, a surge of fruit and hops jumps out at you. You dip your nose to the glass and it bum-rushes your nostrils like no other. JAM PACKED with all kinds of fruits; tangerines, oranges, grapefruits, papaya, pineapple. The description of the beer on the bottle is very accurate - this beer's aroma is GUSHING with citrus. It's incredible. The citrus is outlined with an incredible hop portrait; resinous, piney, oily, slightly floral and dank. Perfect aroma for a pale ale.

At this point, I'm just hoping that the smell doesn't get my hopes up so high only to be let down by the taste. It doesn't - this beer delivers, HARD. The hops are more up front in the taste than they were in the aroma, and it works perfectly. You're still getting the incredible citrus on the nose and the extra hops on the tongue - perfect harmony and synthesis of the senses. Bitter spikes and oily and resinous hops take over for a bit, mellowed out by the grapefruits, tangerines, pineapples, and mangoes in the background.

The hops round out a bit as the beer warms up, and the citrus flavors evolve even more. This beer is seriously insane, one of the best things I've ever tasted. Little malt and yeast on the very tail end. Not much, but really, when your hop profile is this amazing, it doesn't leave much of one to be desired. Just a phenomenal flavor and aroma profile that synthesize extraordinarily well. Medium body, medium-high carbonation, ever so slightly sticky.

Good lord. After I had a Pliny the Elder, I thought I'd never have another hop-forward beer better than it. I take that back. Pliny is damn good, but Zombie Dust is goddamn incredible. Literally, a PERFECT combo of bitter and sweet, hops and citrus, every sip blows my mind all over again. And that nose... my GOD that nose. Unbelievable. Whether you consider this a PA or an IPA doesn't matter - just know that it's an amazing beer. If I could get my hands on this easily, I would drink it all day, until the day I died. All hail the Citra hop, all hail motherfuckin' Zombie Dust.

EDIT: 4/3/2013

Finally received some more of this after putting it off for so long (thanks MCain04). I was afraid this time around that it wouldn't be as good. I was worried that maybe I had hyped it up to myself before and that I was overrating it big-time. I was scared that my palate had changed and Zombie Dust would no longer be the same sweet nectar I fell in love with the first time around. Luckily all of my worries were wiped away the second I cracked open the bottle, took a nice whiff and had another sip. This stuff is simply amazing. So perfectly balanced and so insanely drinkable. All things considered, this is still one of THE best beers out there, in my opinion.

Since there is so much fuss about this beer I decided to just rate it without bias. Three Floyds makes a damn good beer, but their cocky attitude at the brewpub multiple times left me boycotting for awhile. Alas, I gave in on a sixer the other day.

A- About 1 finger worth of head, and a moderate amount of lacing. A pale goldenrod color that is translucent.

S- Definitely smell sweet mango, with some subtle grapefruit and tangerines hints at the end. Also smell some light malt that really complements the mango.

T- First thing I taste is bitter pine, which leads to grapefruit to mango. It seems to go from bitter to sweet, and ends nicely with some light malty goodness.

M- High carbonation that stings the tongue, but not too overwhelming. Medium bodied.

O- A damn good beer. However, I believe it smelled better than it tasted. I feel like the pine overwhelmed the citrus flavors. But it is Three Floyds, they love their bitter hops. Lives up to the hype.

Bottle to the tulipsnifter...b/c that's how I seem to roll often.

A - pours a slightly hazy copper-amber with bubbles rising; quarter-inch head; lacing present and consistent

S - the smell on this is ridiculous; citrus; mango; kiwi; apricot; melon; delicious piney hops; caramel malts; sweet fruit

T - the tropical fruits come through with all of the aforementioned smells present in flavor-form; mango; grapefruit; pineapple; sweet pine deliciousness

M - this is pretty carbonated and dry; medium finish; smooth and buttery; hotdamn it's silky and amazing

O - stands up to its reputation; I've recently had Dreadknaught and Apocalypse Cow and while both of those have significantly more heat, Zombie Dust takes the cake with balance, flavor, and pale ale (IPA) perfection. One of the best beers I've ever had to date and being a hophead, something I can honestly session...if only I had cases of this!

12 ounce bottle poured into a small snifter. No bottle dating. Orange marmalade in color with a slight haze. White head, moderate retention. Oily clear lacing. Clearly loaded with hops. Aroma dominated by apricot hoppy goodness with a touch of malt sweetness hiding behind it. Taste obviously has a nice biting bitterness to it, the hops are citrussy and once again, apricot stands out with some grapefruit. Exceptionally easy to drink and very tasty.

on tap at the brewpub on more than one occasion.

this is why i started loving beer, rather than liking it. the first sip is just WOW! and you want more, FFF really hit a cult classic with this brew.

A: light is color with a white head.

S: HOPS, HOPS, HOPS, citrus, grapefruit, any fruit you can imagine into this beer is there.

T: HOPS, fruit, malts, and more HOPS.

M: fizzy but not like a $5 6-pack, like a very good pale ale.

O: would drink this again, and again, and again, and again, and again.. if you get the chance to order this on tap or if a friend offers you a 12oz bottle, don't turn it down!

I ordered an an Arctic Panzer Wolf before I realized what I was missing. Panzer Wolf is very good, but too hot. Zombie Dust is exactly what I wanted. The panzer wolf is left panting in the dust.

A- great lacing, decent color. Clear. Not remarkable, but nice.
S- Subtle, but great nose. Accurately reflects its flavor. Pine and citrus.
T- Wow. Great beer. Head slap, but I want more. Impressive.
M- not too dry or bitter. Touches all my taste buds.

Deserve a world-class rating. I can't believe I lasted this long without this beer.

HUGE thanks to my buddy Doug for hooking me up with a few of these to finally get to try. Poured into a Weyerbacher tulip glass...

A - Poured a slightly hazy, apricot color that had some nice gold hues when held to the light. An off-white, 2 finger head formed and retained nicely. Some nice lacing was left along the glass

S - Really bright, fruity aromas right from the start. Big notes of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, honeydew mellon, and lots of lemon/citrus notes. Sweet biscuit and caramel malts provide a background for these sweet fruit aromas. There's a bit of pine on the backend of the nose too.

T - Tropical fruits all over the place! Fresh, bright flavors of mango, grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine and lemon right up front. A bready, caramel, biscuit malt stands up nicely with the fruit notes of the flavor profile. Some resin and some slight bitter pine is present as well adding nicely to the flavors here.

M - Medium bodied beer that at times is slightly on the lighter side. Slightly dry finish to this one. Medium level of carbonation.

O - Really stellar sessionable pale ale. The flavors are what I want in a hop forward beer all the time. Glad I got to try this one. Hope to get some more sometime soon!
