Have had many of THBC's beers but I think this is my first official review of one of their beers. Like the majority of their beers, they are highly drinkable and just great representations of the styles they are going for and this BlondeZombie does not disappoint.

Growler filled yesterday. Poured into goblet glass.

A-The body is a burnt copper with nice haze. The head was a nice, dense fingers width. Minimal lacing left on the glass.

S-The smell is all hop resin, honey due, grapefruit, mango and some dankness throughout the mix.

T-The taste is where the honey comes through. Its subtle but gives the beer a sweetness which I like. Citrus forward beer on the taste with the honey coming in the finish with a hint of alcohol heat.

M-Medium bodied, carbonation on the lower side of the spectrum with a sweet finish. Has a nice after taste.

O-A fantastic triple IPA. If I had the choice to drink this or Founders Devil Dancer I would choose this in a instance. The smell and taste are in harmony with one another and the alcohol is none existent other than the finish of the beer. Very awesome!
