Perfect, sparkling amber, with a large beige head that leaves behind a nice, thin blanket.

Catty pine and grapefruit aromas--this is kicked up a zillion notches from what one should expect from an "APA"--I don't know how this isn't just classified as an IPA but man is this powerful. There are some funky, musty elements from the hops at time, such as rug, copper, and a little visit from the allium family.

Tastes like grapefruit candy, with cracker and light pine. There is a hint of graham, bringing back some memories of Permanent Funeral, one of my favorites, but it's far in the background. Otherwise, some caramel malt is also present.

Zombie Dust is actually quite balanced compared to the nose, and even a little sweet compared to how I remember myself having it for the first time so long ago, thinking it was such a tongue searing bitter monstrosity. I've had far more imposing hop bombs than this, but it still has a good bitter kick if you're not used to or ready for it.

Like many of the overly hyped (and hopped) IPA's, this is a very good but overrated beer.

Enjoyed this from bottle and keg. Keg was better.

Slight aroma, nice color.
A very drinkable pale ale....clean and smooth.
Didnt linger on the palate as long as I would like.

I liked this beer, but to me, didn't live up to the hype.
