Thanks, Alex! Cloudy, peachy colour. Fresh peachy mosaic aroma, and the yeast is in there a bit b/c it got agitated. The hops arenít all that bright but the balance is nice - rich bitterness - and it finishes with a nice mosaic character. Honestly, Columbus and Mosaic should blow my mind, I wish this got to me at peak freshness.

Bottle. Pours a hazy coppery orange with a thin head and aromas of oranges, resin and papaya or something like that. Flavor is mostly oranges and papaya in my book with a decent malt presence to support it and a little touch of pine in the late finish. Very nice beer.

Bottle thanks to the brewer. Pours a hazy peach amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of rich citrus and tropical fruits with a hint of sweet grain and grass backing. Flavor has bitter citrus and tropical fruits with some earthy grains and a bit of grass underlying.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is truly a great beer. I wonít bore you with the same old boring piney citrus aroma type description. If you need that see below for other reviews. This is not quite as refreshing as zombie dust but I donít know if I have had anything quite as good as this. This is a top 3-5 of all 300+ beers I have tried. Beautiful aroma, simply astounding, words wonít and canít describe it. It would be an insult. Aftertaste is its only curse. If you love 3 Floyds brewery this is the best knock off to date.
