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.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy yellow orange color with good clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Lemony, citrus, herbal, pale, toasted, and biscuity malts.

Taste: Would have liked more hop flavor, but content with the way it tastes. Light bitterness and chewy notes in the rear too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, crisp, refreshing, medium carbonation, light light bitterness, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty nice APA. Good enough to grab another bottle out of the fridge.

Pours a golden amber with streams of bubble ribbons rising to a thick lingering white foam. Cloud-like nebulas float around. It smells of tropical fruit: pineapples and oranges. There's also a fresh-cut grass smell that reminds me of spring, a bit flowery. The taste is refreshing, bursts of juicy citrus along with a creamy sensation reminiscent of piña colada with a piney aftertaste. I try to always have a 6 pack in my Chicago fridge.
