Picked up a can as part of a build your own 6 pack at Binny's. Dude working there said it is better than Zombie Dust. It is very similar. Hoppy and citrus aroma, also found in the flavor. Very good, would definitely get this again and thinking about making a trip down to the brewery and restaurant.

Nice foggy gold color, white head than vanishes quickly, nice lacing. Citrus aroma, hint of pine. Flavor follows, a bit bread at the end. Very nice brew.

I have had this one a few times. My liquor store advertises this as "just like Zombie Dust" from Three Floyds brewery. I donít feel that is necessarly true but I would rather say this is definitely for fans of Zombie Dust. It is very well balanced. Buttered bread malts and grapefruit like hop profile.The citrusy dryness shines through. Very juicy hops. This is one of the best tasty semi-sessionable beers Iíve had.

Aroma is strong flora, citrus and fruit. The flavor is fruit, citrus, light hops, malts and a slightly tart/mostly smooth finish.

12oz can from Binnys in Highland Park. Pours an unclear orangey yellow with an off-white head leaving some lacing. Aroma has sweet fruits and malts, some citrus, light pine. Taste is of orange juice, sweet malts, some tangy pine and some spices. Medium bodied and a bit oily. Finishes sweetly bitter, and tangy. Solid pale, without much to have it stand out. 13.4

Who would think from Illinois such good breweries would pop up. Got a can of this from my son and thought I would rate it. Surprised to see the high rating here but can concur this truly is a great IPA/APA. Aroma is very pleasant smell of hops presentation above average taste great and lays on the pallet. Would love to have it again.

For whatever reason, I figured this would just be some random mediocre garbage but I am clearly dumb. It is random very good garbage and definitely holds itís own against the best Illinois hoppy pale beers, including much more talked about breweries. Itís slightly hazed orange golden w/ a thin, fine bubbled head and little spots of lace. This has a huge, juicy hop nose to it. Itís very fruity w/ a touch of herbal character and pine needles. Iíd probably call this an IPA at its alcohol level and it definitely delivers tons of hop flavor and aroma. It is just a touch sweet and maybe just a teensy bit heavy feeling for the style but it does have a good whallop of bitterness in the finish to balance. This one surprised and impressed me and I will definitely pick this up quite often when hop cravings hit.
