Something like a passion fruit smell in the nose is my first take, backed up by some citrus, mango and faint lemon. But, I almost get something like grape in it too. Taste has some bitterness abiding the ride down. Some tartness and pucker from the hopping that is loosely balanced by the malt and backed up with a nice bite of bitterness. A nice break from what we have come to expect, and probably will go down as an excellent summer drinker and Yum Yum does its job well of being a "sessionable" beer that very unfortunately does not list its abv on the packaging. At 5.5% or whatever it actually is, its not exactly a true session ale of the kind you can keep the glass running at half full for the day, but it's pretty tasty and worthy of some dead animal perched in between some bread and for getting a shine on with. And, yes. The label art work is top notch, and hilarious.

Poured out of the brand new released 12 oz bottles on September 18, 2014 at home.
For a refreshing Pale Ale, this beer packs a hoppy citrus punch that is not overly abusive. The mouthfeel is light and crisp with a hop-thirst quenching bitterness that's hard to beat. This isn't Zombie Dust, but it is definitely worth a try.

On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but simple in my opinion.

Wow... there once was a time where brewery-only releases that were less than 3 months old wouldn't have 60-odd reviews. But I guess that's just the magic of the "Rating" feature--it allows anyone to make up anything.

Anyhow, this was different. I liked it, but it lacked the oomph of their regular hoppy offerings, and I.. it's hard to put into words, but I just couldn't wrap my head (or tongue) around what it is the new, bizarre hop profile was trying to achieve. It was like a blend between amarillo and sorachi ace, with nodes of sharp spice clashing against more American bursts of citrus. Neat, but they need to work on it some more. Here's my notes:

Golden orange-ish, slight haze and a decent head. Smells like a straight up midwest IPA: rounded biscuit malt, alpha hops. Tastes sweet, sharp, and spicy. Strange hop profile. Not quite like anything i've had. Round, thick back end.

A- poured golden yellow with 2 fingers of creamy head.

S - sweet cookie like malt is followed bysweet candied citrus

T - sweet biscuit and nut. If you were just tasting the malt, you'd think this was a nut brown ale. That isn't the case though and the citrus hops shine through. I'm reminded of a citrusy, hopped up Fat Tire when I drink this, but not in a bad way.

M - smooth and very drinkable. Very sessionable.

O - I really like this beer, but not quite as much as zombie dust or alpha king

I was just happy this was still on draft when I got there. Bright golden body with a two finger white foamy head. There's a bit of sweet citrus on the nose but it really isn't too pungeant. The taste is explosive. Sweet and bitter citrus peel and citrus juice. I had to ask if my tastebuds were correct and indeed they confirmed that this is Mosaic hopped. Mouthfeel was nice and slick with a little resin. The malt is there for balance but it really steers clear to me. It's all about showcasing Mosaic hops, and that was certainly done. I still like Annica a little better, but I'm very happy to see a sessionable APA use of this hop. Well done Floyd's, well done.

Tried this at the brew pub. More akin to zombie dust. I hope they keep this one around and start bottling it because I was blown away. Better than gumball head, pride n joy, and jinx proof. Another amazing beer from an amazing brewery. It has joined the elites such as APW, permanent funeral, ZD, and Alpha King in terms of ales.
