Big thanks to Masterski for providing this beer. Another nice beer from Three Floyds

Pours with a finger of fluffy thin head that falls to a thin cap of foam that stays for the duration. The lightest haze is present in this orange/gold colored beer. Some strands of carbonation escape. Just a splotch of lace.

Aroma is bright and fresh. A blast of citrus, but the more you enjoy the light toasted malt comes through. Smells a bit like a Grateful Dead concert.

Nice APA. Fresh flavor, bright. Toasted malt beneath the green grassy and citrus hops. While very hop forward, this is still definitely an APA vs. IPA. Some nice fruit mid palate.

Body is still fairly light and bright. Refreshing beer.

Really good. Not a Daisy Cutter classic, but very very good.

12oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

Pours into my glass like a half an orange with a small white head. Nose is sweet, fruity, sweet, and very fresh.

Taste is citrus and sweet tropical fruit, very fresh and sweet with a lot of smooth sweet flavors. Mouthfeel is smooth and rich with a nice crisp finish, really good.

12oz bottle received in a behemoth of a box from the ever excellent AleWatcher. Thanks Jeff! This has been a long time want.

A- Nice orange/amber color with two fingers of snow white foam. Head recedes slowly leaving a thick coaster and some very nice lacing.

S- Huge citrus presence in the nose. Pine and a bit of malt squeak through, but notes of orange, tangerine and grapefruit overpower them. Smells great!

T- Opens with mild grapefruit, apricot and hemp. Signature Citra hop flavor. Nice bitterness mid-palate, followed by subtle, biscuity malt balancing things out momentarily. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Bittersweet aftertaste lingers a bit.

M- Medium body. Medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy texture.

O- I really enjoyed this. The nose combined with the citrus and hemp flavors are remeniscent of a good IPA. The nice biscuity malt bill smooths things out, and the creamy feel make this a refreshing, insanely drinkable brew. I'd have this regularly if it was available in Cali. Recommended.

Poured into a pint glass, great golden color. The aroma showed citrus/grapefruit and the taste was a light malty background and fantastic hoppy taste. Easily one of the better 'pale ales' I've had as I'm a sucker for hops. Would love to see more pales go towards this style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Received a 12 FL OZ bottle in a trade w/ mdvatab & am unsure of the estimated price of this. Poured from the white/green labeled bottle w/ Zombie Dust in Green & a Zombie wearing a crown on the front into a Crown Royal Shaker Glass. No freshness date since its a FFF brew.

Aroma- A refreshing and strong grapefruit aroma starts out this APA. Malts are evident too in a medium fashion, and then citra hops evident.

Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that stays for appropriate time. Has a semi-hazy, golden body but then there is no lacing afterwards.

Flavor- Awesome FFF hop blend used! Citra and grapefruit are the biggest characteristics in here and the hop bitterness is medium. Very enjoyable all the way through as well as balanced.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, and leaves hop on the palate but not much else.

Overall Impression- Simply fantastic! This was tough to compare to Alpha King but have to say I enjoy this one more (from memory). Will be looking back @ my Alpha King review and seeing how it compares. This one definitely had some malt aroma/flavor that helped balance out the taste and make more characteristics happen. Will be getting this one again, and hopefully in a 6-pack or more!

Three Floyds Zombie Dust is quality APA. My bottle may not have been fresh, since it wasn't super hoppy.

A: Slightly cloudy orange colour and a 5 mm head that lasts pretty well. 4

S: The smell is strongly hoppy but smooth. Citrus fruits and some maltiness. 4.5

T: Excellent malty base over milder hops. Perhaps they've faded a little. This is a quality APA that would have been a little better if it were fresh. I tasted it alongside alpha king which definitely had more hop kick. The zombie dust had a nicer malt flavour though, less bitterness and a better mouthfeel. 4

M: Foamy. 4.5

O: 4

Huge thanks to Chris for this one.

Pours a finger of white head with decent retention leaving a bit of lace. Color is a slightly hazed golden orange.

Aroma: Fresh, dank, and fruity. Floral with grapefruit and pineapple flavors. Some other citrus flavors mix in there.

Taste: Very fruity and very hoppy. Floral and piney. Grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon citrus. No malts show.

Mouthfeel: Bitter, but clean. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends a little sticky and hop resiny.

Overall, this was a great APA. Very drinkble and very fresh. I opened this up and knew I would enjoy it. This stuff is legit. Get some of this now.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle into The Bruery tulip. Picked up a case at the pub in Munster, IN. Definitely fresh; should be after standing in the carry out line for almost an hour as this had turned out to be most popular after its recent release.

A - Very nice amber color with moderate carbonation. Poured a one inch head with nice lacing.

S - Nice fruity aroma with grapefruit and floral coming through.

T - Excellent and smooth; tastes great, less filling. The grapefruit, orange, and citrus are up front. Very nice finish with some hoppiness but definitely not a tongue bruiser. IPA and pale ales are my favorite styles and this one is probably the leading contender for my new favorite. It seems smoother and more tasty than this brewer's very excellent Alpha King. Consistent with the style, the bitterness not as pronounced as an IPA.

M - Very clean with that very smooth citrus lingering at the finish.

Thanks to rjhami for the reminder to stop in Munster to pick up this excellent example of a pale ale.

Pours a nice golden color with a nice head. Looks cloudy and bubbly nice carbonation.
Smell- Very floral and fruity very nice. I am getting a strong a citrus smell. I can't stop smelling it, it smells great.
Taste – Smooth..very smooth..can taste a nice floral/citrus notes almost grapefruit like. This beer tastes great. One of the best apa I have had.
Mouth feel- light and smooth with a nice amount of carbonation for me it is a nice balance of carbonation and the light feeling of the beer.
Overall-Great citrus nose one of the best smelling beers I have had the pleasure to taste and the taste lives up to the smell. Great Beer!

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pale golden in color with just a little haze in it. Slightly foamy white head but doesn't last too terribly long. Just a wee bit of carbonation as well.

S/T - Pretty much confirms why I love citra hops. Even from the very beginning of the pour the scent of citrus fruit fills the air and just intensifies when sniffed. The taste follows suit with a huge chewy hop flavor which is dominated by lemon zest, grapefruit, and tangerine. Leaves a nice resin aftertaste but not too drying or bitter.

M - Medium body with plenty of carbonation. Not too sticky on the palate and aftertaste lasts and lasts. Very easy to drink.

O - A pretty awesome APA, if not one of the best. Definitely worth seeking out and nothing bad to say about it.

An awesome extra from BA decadence. Thanks Todd!

A - golden body with an inch of bright white head resting above.

S - ultra-fresh cat piss, which means delicious simcoe hops! Also a ton of fresh grass, a bit of wheat, some maltiness in there. Wow!

T - damn... amazing hop bite, just the right amount of bitterness and a sort of creamy citrusness. This is a fresh, potent beer that is definitely waking up my tasting buds.

M - light but creamy, hoppy but smooth, bright and refreshing.

O - I never even had a desire to try this even though I saw thread after thread ISO it, but now that I have, I'm completely blown away!

Pours a cloudy gold color with a huge 2 finger foamy beige head that had tons of bubbles in it and faded very slowly, leaving a creamy layer on top and excellent lacing coating the sides. This beer was so murky that it looked like ocean water with bubbles racing up all over the place.

Smells of huge hops up front, with a wet hop aroma lead by citrus hops that had grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, orange peel, pineapple, piney hops/pine cones, floral hops, flowers, herbs, coriander, caramel, brown sugar, butter soaked toast, crackers and some faint spices the seem like the hops were wrung out and dripped citrus fruit and hop oils into this brew. This does not have an classic APA aroma, and is more like a DIPA, which was a very pleasant surprise. This smells like a wet hop cone is floating in the glass, with a whiff of buttery grainy biscuit before more fruit kicks in. One of the best smelling APA’s that I’ve ever encountered as this beer would fool most people into thinking that they were dinking a massive IPA.

Tastes like it smells, with huge hops up front including citrus hops, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, orange peel, pineapple, mango, piney hops, pine cones, floral hops, flowers, herbs, fresh cut grass, hay, coriander, brown sugar, caramel, sweet malt, butter, crackers, biscuit and just enough grains to really neutralize any spice bite. This beer is all about the hops and the balance may be off a bit for an APA, but the grains and malts play just enough of a part to make this incredibly drinkable and succulent.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth with very light mild carbonation that borders on thin and watery; it has a medium chewy body and a slick oily feel as it slides across the tongue; the alcohol is very well covered up and there is only a little hop heat that goes well with the sweet fruity finish that’s on the bitter side. After the swallow my mouth was dry with a slight sour pucker and a lingering fruity hop sweetness.

Overall this was a great beer that went down real easy for me. The massive hop flavors and aroma may indicate that this beer could be classified as an IPA, but who really cares what the style is because it was delicious. Thanks to my friend Justin for hooking me up with some kick ass Three Floyds straight from the brewery. I highly recommend this beer and will be seeking it out again as it was ridiculously smooth and outstanding overall. An absolute session beer for me that I could drink anytime and all the time.

12 oz bottle poured into a 3 Floyds Pint glass. Thanks Doug for bringing this back for me.

A- Pours a two finger off white head, sticky lacing on the side, nice retention, pours a murky golden brown color.
S- Really nice hoppy aroma, big juicy fruity aroma coming out citrus, grapefruit, peach, mango, nice bready malts in the background really balanced.
T- Wow so smooth, so delicious, this beer is very easy drinking and there’s a lot going on, big fruity hoppy flavors, peach, mango, citrus, pineapple, some grapefruit, not too bitter, more of a balanced sweet bitterness, with a nice malt backbone.
M- Medium mouth feel, really smooth drinking, clean finish, well carbonated.
O- This is one of if not the best APA I’ve ever had, it’s more like an IPA, really fruity and hoppy, balanced and extremely easy drinking, this would be perfect for a hot summer day. Really impressed.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a hazy dark orange/copper color with a finger and a half of soapy and foamy off white head. Head recedes quickly, leaving a lot of sticky lacing, to a thin film over the surface and a collar of small bubbles. Very hazy beer, but you can still see a few shadows through the beer, with a good amount of small slow bubble carbonation near the edges of the glass.

Nose is pretty good, light grapefruit peel, dank pine needles, a little touch of floral like hops. A nice caramel malt presence comes through as well. As it warms, I get a little bit of stone fruit, and tropical fruit aromas, fairly muddled though.

Taking a sip, there were more tropical fruits on the tongue than in the nose, sweet stone fruit and lighter tropical fruits, grapefruit. A touch of pine and floral hop flavors as well. Mid tongue, a nice caramel and grain malt presence, continuing into a nice and dry finish with a balance of light hops and malt.

Light body with a crisp and refreshing carbonation that's perfect for the style. While not quite a light ABV beer, I wouldn't mind having a few of these. Very nice beer.

Finally having this again after drinking at Dark Lord Day, thanks to a trade with claaark13 - it was amazing then, so let's see how my memory holds up . . .

Yeah, it's still pretty amazing. Once you crack this bottle open, the room is instantly filled with that fresh hop aroma (someone should make candles out of Citra Hops), and the pour just brings out more fruity hop notes.

While the appearance is a little less than to be desired from a pale ale (looks more like a DIPA, honestly), the taste is so clean and crisp that you drink it so fast you can barely look at it. Loads and loads of clean hop characters - pineapple, lemon, peach - all the usual suspects are there, with just a touch of bitterness.

For pale ales, and IPA's and DIPA's for that matter, I prefer the clean fruit over bitterness - if you're looking for the opposite, this may not be for you. However, if you're looking for an almost perfect, unique, and super clean American Pale Ale, look no further.

Bravo, Three Floyds, Bravo!

12oz bottle, courtesy of funhog, into a perfect pint. I'd had a growler of this previously and enjoyed it immensely but was kicking myself for not having reviewed it.

A - Pours an almost perfectly clear yellow-amber, with a billowy three fingers of head. Outstanding retention and lacing. This looks as good as I imagine is possible.

S - Peachy, citrusy aromas come bounding out of the glass on the pour, along with a slight candy sweetness. Man I love Citra hops! The nose isn't overly complex, but what is there is outstanding and plentiful.

T - It reminds me a lot of fresh Blind Pig, with lots of fruit-forward hoppiness, but without the overwhelming bitterness in the finish. Peach, mango, and grapefruit in there, with a touch of pine. Very, very nice.

M - It's by no means a lightweight beer, but it's very crisp and also slightly dry. It would be great on a warm summer day (too bad summers here are oppressively hot).

O - I've been a little hard on FFF in the past -- their DIPAs just haven't really done it for me -- but this beer is the real deal. They've managed to pack a lot of the aspects that I enjoy in an IPA/DIPA into an APA. I love it, and I'll be trading for as much as I can manage in the future.

To be fair I do not care for really hoppy beers. If you want a real craft beer from FFF try Ragnarok. Not bad, but just too much hops to malt ratio for my taste buds. Seems after 1-2 years it will age like fine wine. If you like hops offer me a trade!

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with large volumes of white head. Plenty of head retention and lacing. Oh wow, this is going to be good.

The aroma is a very lively citrus. The hops are in their glory.

The flavor is a tremendous party of glorious hops! There is a lot of citrus flavor, pine and that bitter twist of lemon peel. The flavor has this sweet, delicate finish. I don't know how that can be after all the bold flavors.

The beer is actually quite clean for mouthfeel. The flavors end with adelicate and clean finish.

This is a tremendous beer. Hop head will love it. The hops are on parade in ways the are both bold and subtile. Three Floyds is not available in my area. I will be looking for more excuses for road trips!

Poured in to a pint glass.

A: This beer pours a hazy light copper color with a one finger of foamy bone white head. Head recedes nicely and leaves wisps of lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is very fruity at the forefront, pineapple, mango, lemon and grapefruit.

T: Taste starts with pineapple and mango at the forefront. Middle has a bit of grainy, bready malt presence. Finish has a nice lemon, grapefruit zest with some left over pineapple flavoring in the aftertaste.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, oily body with a dry finish.

O: Goes down easy, very tasty, not too filling, decent kick, a bit more IPA than APA, but a fantastic beer that I would absolutely hit up all the time.

Poured from 12oz. bottle into imperial pint glass.
Obtained bottle in trade w/ Barfwin. (Thanks Mike!)

Aroma: Mmmm, sweet, pungent citrus and tropical fruit notes. Grapefruit, lemon, and pineapple. Light brown sugar malty sweetness.

Appearance: 1 finger off-white head falls very slowly. Body is a hazy orange-bronze. Nice Belgian lace washes onto the inside of the glass with each sip.

Flavor: Tropical mango and pineapple fruity sweetness. Light grapefruit. Malty cereal grain, followed by some mild, but not overwhelming/harsh, bitterness from the middle through the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and body. Hop tannins do not come through as being drying.

Overall: While I was a bit skeptical about whether this one could live up to all the hype, it turned out to be the best APA I've ever had... Another EXTREMELY well-done showing by Three Floyds. Do yourself a favor and get a bottle of this one!

Three Floyds Zombie Dust is a good crisp American Pale Ale. Great, in fact. Fruity and hoppy on the nose and up front in the taste. Crisp at the back. A touch drying, but clean, and well-balanced by caramel and bready malts. Lace hangs all over the glass like lingerie in an early morning hotel room.

Hazy copper, the taste is bold without being over aggressive. It doesn't beat up your palate and you know it's still an APA. Not one of those super-hopped Indian ones.

Big thank you to Dan out in Chicagoland for sending this my way. It's truly a fine product.

And this is a much shorter review than normal because I'm headed up to Vermont to compare this to Hill Farmstead's Edward. They're in the same league.

This is by far the best IPA I have ever had. I was excited to learn that Three Floyd started to bottle it. Although it is a rare find, I got my hands on some at Whole Foods in Chicago. I poured the beer into a stemless wine glass to appreciate the foggy golden color and offers a heavy mango aroma with hints of pineapple, floral and miscellaneous citrus scents. The first sip bites your tongue with the sting of hops like other IPAs, however the aftertaste doesn't linger, it finishes clean leaving a delightful taste behind. The carbonation floats down the side and reflects the light to shimmer, it such a way that it looks like it could be zombie dust! It is a very refreshing brew, and offers interesting comic artwork by Tim Seeley. I highly recommend if you can find it!
