Pours a light crisp golden yellow with a finger of white foam.

Lemon, herbal, floral hops.

Definitely rather floral in flavor as well but there is a slight citrusy fruit character going on.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, crisp.

Overall, a decent brew but nothing to write home about.

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

A burnt amber color that is clear with a slight eggshell cap and little lacing.

Aroma that is slightly fruity with pine sap hops..

Taste begins with a blast of hop bitterness that is dry with some acidity. No tropical or citrus that I was expecting, just a sharp bitterness that lingers. Doesn't taste fresh.

Mouthfeel is medium with light/medium carbonation.

I was disappointed with this because I it's a Citra hop brew that does not compare to the Zombie.
