Picked up a sixer from Binny’s on Grand Avenue on May 11th for $13.99 and enjoyed in Indiana May 13th. No bottling date visible.

Beer poured orange with a nice white head with the original pour.

Nose is citrus forward, very nice.

Taste is oranges forward over a nice malt base. Finish is piney to let you know this is an IPA.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall a solid old school IPA that definitely was worth seeking out and buying while in the greater Chicago area!

Nice amber color. The smell has an attractive flora aroma and hops. The taste is well balance and refreshing. Pale Ales had not been on the top of my drinking list but this beer changed my outlook.

Not sure what the hooplah is here.... the good: crisp hoppy floral aroma. Looks great. White creamy head, clear amber.
Taste.... kinda thin. Clean , but not a lot going on here. Got a bottle. Maybe it’s better on tap.

I got some fresh zombie dust and you could smell the hops as soon as I popped the top off. Very good and now one of my favorites.

This was a good IPA but does not warrant the high grade it has on BA. I think it was better than average but I would not give it a ton more credit than that. I imagine we tasted this against a Firestone Walker IPA and I don't recall Zombie Dust cleaning the floor.

Beautiful, slightly opaque light-copper body. Huge, fluffy, eggshell head that holds up well and leaves ring upon ring of sticky, sudsy lacing.

Lemon, lemongrass, pine sap, dish soap, light biscuit, and dank hay on the nose. Maybe a little tropical citrus, some herbal greens, and a pilsner malt-like note in the background.

Taste is bright, bitter citrus pith balanced by a wave of semi-dry fruit sweetness. Lots of lemon, grapefruit, berry, white grape, and resin. Crackery malt with a touch of salt. Dry, white wine finish with a wonderful, lingering grapefruit bitterness aftertaste. Unbelievably drinkable.

Soft, well-carbonated, silky feel. Hefty body than you'd expect on a 6% beer, but certainly not sticky or heavy. Nice coating quality that helps that grapefruit pith finish last even longer.
