On tap at Hopleaf.

Clear copper with plenty of lacing throughout the glass. Dank and tropical nose. Medium bodied at best. Tropical citrus and dank weed on the palate. Grapefruit follows and low bitterness. Crisp and crushable. They should make a lot of it and expand distribution. Good stuff but not mind-blowing.

Had this poured into a pint glass. Color was nice, lighter copperish- orange. Flavor was a little lighter than I expected, citrus hops with a short bitter malt aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall maybe a bit overrated.

Pours golden, with some cloudiness, and a nice head. The smell is hops. The taste is a very nice, hoppy, malty blend that is pleasant and satisfying. The aftertaste is very pleasant. Overall, one of a handful of great APA's (PseudoSue, Todd The Axeman, Abrasive, Pompeii, Lightspeed)

This is an awesome pale ale. Probably my favorite. Seems like each batch is unique which is a really cool thing.

Zombie Dust is the beer to have in the Chicago area. Binny's the largest liquor store hear gets it on a certain day and it is gone within a few hours People wait in line ten fold for it the day it comes in. Some of the Binny's locations only allow you to get one beer, but most let you get only a six pack.

The lacing is rather nice. Smells of citrus hops, lemon, lime, orange. Not bitter for a IPA and well balanced. Pours a orange and smells of and tastes of citrus. I am not IPA fan but I find myself always wanting to have this beer on hand despite it being hard to get. Now have over a case as we went to the brewery yesterday and they were selling it like hotcakes out the door and gone in 1 day. Despite not loving IPA I think that this beer is one of the best beers I have ever had.

On tap at the brewpub. An incredible beer! A very complex flavor, nice color, and very nice aroma. This is my favorite beer from 3 Floyds. Highly recommended!

Very nice hazy orangish color with a thin head atop. Lots of citrusy aromas and light on the hoppiness. Such a great beer to drink during warm occasions! Probably the most refreshing beer I've tried.
