look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Aroma is light pine, spices and citrus. The flavor is citrus, biscuit/English malts, fruit, a hint of hop resin and a mix of tangy and mild bitterness in the finish.

Bomber to a snifter, date got smeared off

Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam. Good retention, moderate carbonation from the sides, okay lacing

Smells pretty balanced between the malts and the hops. A bit of pine and citrus against a sweet caramel bready malt. Really very crazy going on here

Taste translates pretty well. Mild citrus hops next to a slightly sweet bready back bone. Again, pretty simple

Feel is lightly bitter, light to moderate body. Alcohol is hidden well, easy to drink

Overall fff is better known for their bigger beers, but I get that this one is supposed to be pretty tame. Definitely is, I want to try zd a lot more though

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A 22 oz. bomber with no indication of any bottled on or best before date on the bottle. Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy darkish orange colour with a thin white head that does stick around for a while.

Aroma: Smells a little weak, but of pine, citrus hops and grapefruit along with some caramel at the end as well.

Taste: A strong malt background of bread and caramel at first followed by citrus grapefruit and orange turning tropical fruit mango. Finish is a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with medium carbonation and slightly sticky.

Overall: This was decent from 3 Floyds. It starts sweet and finishes bitter but overall I still easily prefer Zombie Dust.
