Having it fresh from the tap at 3FFFs this weekend made me have to revisit my review. Everything an American Pale Ale should be!

From the first time you smell the hops in the glass, you know this is a special beer. Yes there is an explosion of hops, although controlled, when you taste it, but the clean mouth feel leaves you wanting more. It is evident why all the reviews are what they are for Zombie Dust across the country at BA and other beer rating sites. This is an outstanding beer that you are bound to enjoy! As long as you like hops... If you don't the it is a wonder why you even drink beer.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint. I had this three days after it was bottled. Nice.

Appearance: Hazy orange with good, off-white head and nice retention.

Smell: Grapefruit and orange, but it is by turns tangy, tart, sweet and bitter. Some spiciness as well.

Taste: Crazy Citra assault. As in the aroma, the citrus of grapefruit, orange and spiciness is at the forefront, but it is simultaneously sticky sweet, tangy tart and dryingly bitter. Interesting combination, but I see this with Lagunitas as well. Malt body provides balance but doesn't detract from the hop flavors.

Feel: Medium to full body that is very oily but appropriately drying on the finish. Moderately carbonated.

Overall: A top-notch APA that is very different from the old Cascade examples. That said, I don't feel that this is really any better than Lagunitas New Dogtown Pale Ale, which is easy to find. How much is the hype factor driving up the score on this, albeit excellent, beer?
