Bottled on 10-30-14

A - Cloudy Amber body with clean white ~2" head. Lacing holds well throughout tasting.

S - Smell was a little less pungent than most 3F's DIPAs. Citrus, malt, and hops seemed well balanced.

T/M - Malt, sweet burnt sugars, citrus (orange more than pineapple/lemon), pine/grass. Good creamy/chewy mouth-feel. Low ABV makes for a very clean and drinkable beer.

O - Sweet malt forward taste with nice citrus and pine finish. Good DIPA with a little more malt and pine than other offerings. Not my favorite 3F DIPA, but they have so many good ones to choose from. Still quite tasty and worth checking out. Prost!

I hope to God this label is being approved, the Zombie Crusaders with mullets adorn the beer with some serious death metal artwork with the heading War Mullet. Welcome to Three Floyd's Zombie Apocalypse beer, pours a golden orange into my Tripel Karmeliet chalice glass slightly hazed with massive amounts of yeast in the bottom of the bottle still hanging out. Big biscuit textured head floating above the rim of the glass, leaves chunky sporadic lacing layered all day. Aroma is citrus bomb all day, it's like the sweet juice of freshly squeezed oranges minus bitter pith. Very aromatic orange citrus maybe a bit of peel spraying my way, but damn it smells fresh. Flavors keeps it in check with big citrus layers of hops and a spicy element that I've never met in an IPA, I can't put my finger on it but dare I say ginger or something akin to that root spice. More spicy character that's hard to put my finger on with each sip, yet those hops have an irresistible flavor profile, maybe a bit more spiciness from green onions or some other Summit hop addition, either way it's there almost vegetal with the clash of citrus hops might rub some folks the wrong way, alcohol is way too well hidden. Big beer in all it's glory drinking like your favorite flavorful standard IPA. Smoking the L'atelier Surrogates Tramp Stamp from Pete Johnson and his brother with this one, it's a fantastic combination sure to please any hop head and cigar lover. I'm a fan of this beer big hop character keeps rolling with every sip, it's just that good...remember some beers are meant for enjoyment by themselves others to share with friends, this one you should drink every last drop because there's no telling the next time you will be able to grab another bomber of this stuff. I got it in Newark, OH at Beverage Source a great little store that me and WVsabbath had to drive a couple hours to, well worth the stop excellent selection with every bottled tagged with the price. They also had a small bar side where rare taps where meant to be enjoyed. Carbonation and mouthfeel are perfect bready layered notes of hops with each sip, it's resinous and oily just like any good DIPA should be these are some gifted brewers overall please seek this one out it's that good.
