3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pungent aroma of juicy citrus fruits. Light bodied, aggressive carbonation. Bright stone fruit flavors dominate - peach and apricot. The hop profile is fruity, fresh, and expressive. Well attenuated, dry and thin finish. It struggles to stay together, due to the lack of malt. Really tasty for what it is.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Roundhouse, Hong Kong. Pours gold, white head. Nose is pine, citrus, pretty normal but fresh and spritzy with some lemon. Dryness prevails in the flavour, spritzy and normal pine etc. Dry and fresh finish. Lives up to the hype.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy true golden color with a white head. Aroma is of hops (obviously), grapefruit, pine, bark, grass, and grain. Not too carbonated on the palate. Flavors include just about everything in the nose. There seems to be a little more malt present in the taste than in the smell, but that’s to be expected with the low alcohol percentage. Leaves a dry hoppy finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flight on tap at The Royal Pig Fort Lauderdale. Rating is for a session IPA, not an IPA. Aroma: pines, grapefruits. App: clear pale with small white head and some lacing. Taste and palate: light body, clean, light bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Overall: Founders really nailed the session IPA here, clean, light and easy to drink

Bottle 33cl. Light Amber with a minimal white head. Very hoppy nose with some citrus and floral sence. Medium bitter with a nice hippy end. Impressive aroma and taste for this low alc. Beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden pour; delicate white head & lace. Fresh hop aroma gives a glimmer of hope as juicy Citra hops excite my senses. Unfortunately, the beer is watery with only traces of flavor -- sharply in contrast with the nose. I'm a big fan of Founders, but Zombie Dust has forever spoiled me on low-ABV hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Hazy golden amber with little head. Plenty of aroma, primarily pine, but with quite a lot more going on including citrus and floral. Very interesting and inviting. Light body with moderate carbonation. Taste presents some difficulties, because in some respects it is rather thin and watery, and in others it’s got a very decent hoppy bitterness. It starts wet and thin with a little malt and some restrained but pleasant hoppy bitterness. The hoppy bitterness builds in the finish and is quite crisp but also a little harsh. Overall this is a strange beer. I understand what they are doing, and they have done it quite well. However, for me, it doesn’t work; it sort of feels hollowed out - presumably because the malty body and the alcohol are substantially reduced.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 (33 cl can from Bradley’s, Cork but also tasted on tap @ Taphouse Cph; BBD: 02/03/15) Pours a clear amber with little, off-white head that fades. Aroma is nicely grassy and floral. Oily texture, medium to light body, medium carbonation and a nicely crisp, dry finish. Flavour has aroma notes but also some really nice peachy fruits. Excellent!
