This was a good, not great beer for me. Quite drinkable for a beer over 6% ABV. I think that perhaps the "American Pale Ale" is just not a flashy style. I might be getting jaded. I would try this again, if I ever find it in NJ.

Zombie Dust brewed by 3 Floyds Brewing Co., with an ABV of 6.20% This American Pale Ale pours out a nice deep amber color with a nice full white head. The smell of Zombie Dust is rich with hops bitterness grains and malts. The look and smell of this brew is really inviting, noting bad so far. Now for the taste it is bold with flavors. You pick up a nice amount of hop bitterness in the taste of this brew. There is also some nice notes of grains and malts in the taste of this brew. This one of the better American Pale Ale's I have had. It is really bold with flavors. I can't get over how smooth this brew is. Zombie Dust has a nice nice balance to it, there is overpowering about this brew. The mouthfeel of Zombie Dust is Bold, Rich, Clean, Smooth and refreshing. It is real hard to pick up on the 6.20% ABV in this brew , it is just that smooth. Overall I'm giving Zombie Dust Brewed 3 Floyds Brewing Co., a 4.50 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. 3 Floyds Brewing Co., did a real nice job with this one.

Was gifted a Zombie Dust by a co-worker. Not usually my type of beer, but I respect a well-made APA or IPA so it deserves a chance.

L -- Poured half-way into my imperial pint: lightly hazy deep gold, with a dense and sudsy white head that holds strong.

S -- Resiny Pine. Done. Okay, maybe some light citrus esters behind all the pine.

T -- Citrus flavors -- peach to grapefruit up front, with a well-balanced resiny pine character back. Ever so light biscuit malts perceived in the back taste and aftertaste, resiny finish into the aftertaste.

M -- Soft and smooth mouthfeel with a dry, bitter finish and hot alcohol notes.

O -- I'd rate this higher if it was listed as an AIPA, but it's just too hop-heavy for me to think about slugging a few down like I would with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. It just *might* scare the undead.
