People go nuts for Zombie Dust, but Iactually like this better. It has a much more complex set of hop notes. I know citra is all the rage, and they are delicious but,this one takes it for me.

This is the best pale ale (in most cases, IPA) in the world, hands down. You don't need commentary if you've tried it.
