Yeah man, the reviews and the hype are spot on here. My friend, who only drinks Busch Light, had 2 cans in his fridge and I about had a dang heart attack. This beer isn't available in may area but his friend from out of town had left them and he let me try them. HOLY COW! I was blown away that a pale ale could be so complex. Honestly it was almost perfect in every way. Not too hoppy or malty. Great mouthfeel and perfectly balanced flavor with some fruit notes up front. Trust me when I say it's one of the best beers out there, period.

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is slightly hazed gold, head presents 1 finger thick, dissipates to solid top with some lacing.

Smell is crisp citric and earth hops, pale malt, light toast.

Taste is hop forward - notes of citrus, earth, light pine, pale malt and lighter caramel and toast, some herbal qualities emerge with warmth.

Mouthfeel is moderate carbonation, moderate sweetness, moderate bitterness.

Overall a very good APA - it does seem slightly aged, so would like to try again closer to canning date but even still would expect a bit more malt out of an APA this highly rated.

This is an old school West Coast IPA, not bad just out of fashion with new hszy craze. This one delivers the malt and hops, 10 years ago my revies may have been more favorable.

A very good beer, if you were an IPA fan. I had it on draft in Leesburg Virginia and it’s from Indiana?! This would compete with any West Coast beer

12 oz can from Total Wine in Short Pump, VA The ale poured a hazy amber with a white foamy head and lacing. The aroma of citrus, mostly grapefruit and orange. The flavors are mostly grapefruit and pale malts. The ale has a medium body and average carbonation. This is a top-notch pale ale.

Perfectly celebrates the complexity of hops. The hops are assertive, even bitter in the aftertaste, but not painful. A slight sweetness and juicy hoppy fruitiness on the nose and at first sip before the bitterness crashes in. Great combination of late-boil aroma hops and early-boil bittering hops. The flavor is dynamic (not static) as you sip, shifting between the floral, pine-y, citric, and bitter aspects of hops. This is a beer for someone who likes every facet of hops. 3 Floyds is one of the benefits to living in the Midwest, right after the cost of living and the sweetcorn.

Solid Pale Ale. It is a bit light on the tongue, but other than that really nice and truly well balanced.

One of my top picks for a great IPA. My biggest hate is, It's not available where I live.

Three Floyds Zombie Dust has a clear gold/amber colored body and atop sat a 1 ½-finger white foamy head. The head had good retention and left behind nice lacing. The nose was dominated by citrus; grapefruit, orange, and lemon were noted. The taste follows the nose but is fuller and light malt is also evident. The finish is bitter and dry. Mouth feel is medium bodied that is crisp, and dry with a bitter finish.

Zombie Dust is a well-made American Pale Ale that is a little too hoppy for this non hophead.
