4.03/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled 3/8/2012.

Amber pour, plenty of head, strong lace and retention. A quick swirl awakens the frothy fury after settling. Fresh, piney hops in the nose. Citrusy fruit peels join the fray.

Strongly (nugget) hopped, still retains the sharp piney flavor profile of an IPA. A touch of sweetness midway through reminds me of citra hops. Good malt backbone initially, but this fades quickly to leave a lingering bitterness with some bite to it. Nice body and feel.

I can see how many would like this, but it's really not for me. Don't dislike it, don't love it. I'm not a hop-head, though I do LOVE citra hops. That said, if I were in the mood for a beer like this, it's gonna be Zombie Dust every time.
