This was on my "wants" list for far too long, and I am happy to say it lived up to my high expectations. Beautiful color & nice head with lots of sticky retention. The nose told me I would love this beer, and I did! Amazing, fresh hoppy flavor, and excellent dank after-taste. Love it!

Served on tap at Pizano's in the loop in Chicago.

Coarse white head dissipated quickly, but left very sticky rings. A clear, slightly gold-tinged straw color with light carbonation.

Smells of grapefruit and herbal notes. A drop of honey perhaps.

Taste of hops up front, more herbal then citrus on the palate. Some malty sweetness comes through mid-palate, then finishes with more bitterness.

Generally very well-integrated with medium body, but there's a hint of aqueousness on the finish.

From notes on 7/16/14 at Hopleaf in Chicago, IL

Tap in pint glass

A: Translucent amber. Drinking this side-by-side with Zombie Dust. This has more of a straw color, while Zombie dust has a more copper color. Off white thin head.

S: Relatively muted. Both the hops and malt. Slight piney notes of hops

T: More of a malt presence than Zombie Dust. The finish is dry. No up front single hop presence like ZD.

M: Well carbonated. Medium bodied. Even finish. Extremely crisp and clean.

D: Very drinkable. Nice brew. No overpowering bitterness from hops. More of a malt presence than ZD like bread and biscuits. Does not seem to showcase a particular hop like other APAs. Just an extremely all around well made beer. More even keeled than ZD and overall a better beer.
