Just an amazingly great beer. Wonderful zestiness with the hops that have a nice bitterness along with the fruit flavors. A big vertebrae of malt and the distinguished signature freshness that looms in 3 floyds beers. The Feel is great and makes me want more. The more I drink the better it gets. Cheers

To me this is a cross of YumYum and Alpha King.

Bomber poured into a snifter.

4.5 A: Clear orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is very good and about one finger of plentiful, but spotty lacing is left.

4.5 S: Really interesting hop profile going on here. What sticks out first, mainly because it's so surprising, is jasmine. Big grassiness, then herbalness, lemongrass, lemon, and grapefruit. Caramel maltiness pumps up an otherwise neutral malt base.

4.25 T: Taste is less impressive than the nose, but still really good. Again I get a lot of herbalness in the form of jasmine and lemongrass. Lemon and grapefruit follow. Caramel maltiness. Basically it tastes like it smells, but not quite as potent.

4.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.

4.5 D: Really well made pale. Infinitely drinkable due to the calm bitterness and clean malt profile.

It's got a great balance of malt and of hops. It's juicy but also hoppy... also malty. It's more than just an alcoholic juice. And damn near better than Zombie Dust. Definitely Zombie Dust's main competitor from Three Floyds. Yum yum, this shit tastes like a head full of gumballs and it's a damn-near perfect beer. A six pack of it shant be regretted.

What a beautiful beer! Smells like pears, citrus, apples and grains. Straight out the gate I'm getting a vegetal fruit pale ale however when I dont I get a strong grain profile. This is quite an interesting brew. This tastes like a poptart!

Three months old, was looking for an occasion to share, but no luck. Aroma is tropical fruit heavy, with notes of mango and pineapple accenting resin and a toasted caramel malt base. Flavor is piney and resiny, with tropical fruit and grapefruit underpinnings and a lightly bitter finish. No zombie dust, but a solid offering. Finish falls a bit short.
