I had never had a Zombie Dust before and was pretty psyched to try one for the first time last night. One of our local enthusiasts brought this to the bottle shop to share and man that smell smacked me right in the face the moment he opened it. I've always loved hops but this was an exception. Wish FFF made its way to NC but I guess it wouldn't be as special if it was common

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 3/31/14, poured into a Teku glass

A- pours a bright and clear amber color with a two-finger foamy and creamy white head that retains nicely, leaving some thick patches of lace behind

S- big kick of pungent hops up front with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, fresh cut grass, mango, mint leaves and guava. Underlying sweet malt adds a light aroma of fresh baked bread

T- tropical fruity hop notes up front mix with some grassy and floral notes, fresh mint, leafy and herbal. Malty sweetness kicks in that balances the hops nearly perfectly, adding slightly toasty flavor with a sweet finish

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish

O- It's impressive how they manage to pack that much hop punch into the beer, yet still keep it balanced like a good pale ale. It took me for years to land a bottle of this stuff and it's definitely one of the three best pale ales I've had to date.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Does it live up to the hype? The flavor is massive, and the aroma even more of an achievement. The balance, unparalleled.

A beautiful pour, a hazy straw color with a bright-white rocky head and serious lacing.

Intensely complex aroma of sweet/tart grapes, honey, and white grapefruit.

Flavor in the mouth brings mango and sweet muffin, at once, plus a roaring floral bitterness. Sweet bread in the middle, navel-orange, ripe tomato, Juicy Fruit gum.

This has redefined my Top 5 non-big-beers of all time: Zombie Dust at the top, then Hitachino Nest While Ale, Saison de Lente, New Belgium La Folie, and Rodenbach Grand Cru.

If you've paid the going rate ($12/6-pk.), then you've got liquid gold. Couldn't possibly find a more flavorful, impressive beer at 6.5% abv or less.
