What else is there to say about this beer? Citra hops are wonderful. The puckering, only slight dry taste this beer leaves in my mouth makes me only ever want to drink IPAs.

The first time I tried it was in the early summer of 2016 and it was the best beer I ever had at the time. Compared to the Zombie Dust I've had recently, it seems like it isn't quite what it used to be. Many people I have talked to have had the same experience. Still a world class brew in my opinion

Received in a trade courtesy of jwintaz,thanks!

Pours a rich golden color with a frothy thick head. Slight haze. Nose is light and crisp with notes of grapefruit and juicy orange. A little honey as well. Taste reflects the nose and I get a ton of honey and malt balance. Not very bitter and a touch of sweetness. A bit sticky. Hops are aggressive and malt backbone is delicate. Easy drinking beer

Overall an interesting beer and not what I expected. It tastes like an aged IPA, but very drinkable!

Very Good Beer. But I thought it was a bit overrated.
Very drinkable overall. Some of these delicious new age IPAs knock your taste buds on their back, which is a good thing,
but after like half a beer, you almost can't truly taste the beverage at it's purest.

This beer has a constantly wonderful hop flavor.

A big thanks to Corey for this. I almost feel unworthy for reviewing such an iconic beer with this being my first and only one, however, I think it would be criminal not to give a shot. Zombie Dust pours a beautiful bright amber with a foamy just off white head that holds excellent retention with moderate lacing. Smells like a classic pale ale in the best of ways: citrus, grapefruit, pine, and a bit floral complimented by a simple lightly caramel forward bready grain. Excellent body. Crisp and smooth, decently carbonated, well balanced, and (to my disappointment) went down way too easily. Overall, this is an outstanding pale ale and I can easily see why it has gotten so much attention and praise after all these years. I could drink this all day, everyday. Cheers!
