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.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2014
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.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2014
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.

Laramik (9) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2014 does not count
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.

750ml bottle thanks to RoberDale via six bottle shipper across America. Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a huge frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus skins, apricots, and pine. Taste of watery pine, grapefruit zest, resin, and caramel malt.

750 ml Bottle A - Pours a hazy amber with a one finger off white head. Ok retention/lacing. S - citrus, pine & caramel in that order. T - Well balanced. Nice malt backbone with some juicy bitter citrus. M - Medium bodied. Soft mouthfeel/carbonation. Semi-bitter rind finish. O - Double Wide Light or Iím just getting over a cold. Either way well done.
