22oz.

A: Pours a cloudy bronze with a big off-white head.

S: Apricot and tangerine feature most prominently, with a bit of leafiness.

T: Taste is drier than the nose lets on. Lightly sweet biscuit malt, orange pith and peel, bready, light grapefruit resin.

M: Light-bodied but chewy, mild carbonation.

O: Not as impressed by this as I thought I would be. It tastes nice but was looking for something more juicy.

650ml bottle, dated 6.3.2014, poured into a Three Floyds' Rastal pint glass.

The beer pours a nice orange apricot color, hues of coppers and ambers as well, substantial chill haze that never really goes away, a few bubbles rise to the top of the glass with two fingers of thick, soapy white head, solid retention and nice lace. The aroma is nice, big pine and bitter grapefruit with juicy fresh tropical fruits, crisp pineapple is quite nice with a large helping of bready malts to counterbalance. The flavors are nice, mild bitterness, piney hops lead the way with juicy fruit and assertive grapefruit citrus character that is both bitter and fruity with some lightly floral qualities and again, a strong malt backbone, soft and biscuity, a nice compliment to the hops. The mouthfeel is nice, very full bodied, crisp, nice carbonation that coats the mouth well with nice dryness that lingers very well, perfectly executed.

Verdict: A very nice hoppy pale ale from Three Floyds, another successful take on hops in a more palatable and less aggressive manner than many of their beers. The balance is nice, perhaps it could be more pungent and bright, but this is a very refreshing and enjoyable pale ale.

Pours a bright golden color.

Poor moderately aggressive, produced a finger and a half white head.

Smell: Hops, piney, mango, citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Maybe dried papaya almost?

Mouth feel. Excellent. Bubbly, light , and medium bodied. Just excellently balanced.

Taste. Pine and hops up front. Citrus and I could be mistaken but a slight malty taste, almost like DFH 90 minute. After finish leaves a slightly grassy pine on the tongue, super tasty and pretty subtle.

Final thoughts, pricey but unique. If you can get it, try it. Especially if you like Zombie Dust.
