Awesome beer amazing citra hops! Powerful citra flavor with just enough bite, crisp and easy to drink! Love it! Big fan of zombie dust by 3 floyds being in Indianapolis but I'd take this over zombie dust! Awesome beer!

Pours a clear orange brew, with a medium height white head that gives way to a sticky transparent lacing. Dank smell, with citrus notes - grapefruit and lime - plus a bit of pine resin and some honey. The taste is dank, dominated by citrus hops. One can also taste what feels like unripe tropical fruits. Incredibly light bodied and extremely well balanced ale, with a bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable.

Very citrusy hop flavor and aroma! Love the use of citra as the lone hop variety. Kinda cloudy throughout.

Had at the source. Received in a pint glass.

5.0 A: Moderately hazed golden orange color. One and a half fingers of dense creamy off-white head. Retention is great and glass covering lacing is left.

5.0 S: Blast of resiny and citrusy hops - mango predominant with orange and pineapple following. The hops annihilate any chance of smelling the malts, but it's not a big deal since it's such a potent and wonderful nose.

4.5 T: Mild-moderate bitterness. Again huge resiny and citrus hop flavor. Mango predominant but not as potent as the nose. Pineapple and orange again. Malts are generally neutral with maybe a hint of caramel.

4.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and super smooth.

5.0 D: Very good beer with intense aroma. Manageable bitterness makes this super quaffable.
