Can: The aroma is all citrus with lots of orange and grapefruit. It pours a hazy, bordering on cloudy, golden-orange with lots of sediment and a two finger orange tinged off-white head that leaves behind a few laced rings. The flavor starts lightly fruity with some orange sweetness. There’s The finish has light-moderate grapefuit and pine. Light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation without being prickly.

[Tap] Pours a hazy deep golden color with a large cap of dense white head. Strong aroma of citrus hops, pale malts and orange zest. The taste is of grapefruit hops, pine needles, fresh cereal grains and a clean bitter hop finish. All in all it’s a great, well balanced taste. Average carbonation level. What really makes this beer stand apart from the crowd is the creamy, somewhat oily mouthfeel that fits this beer perfectly. Excellent!

500ml can thanks to jrallen34.
Appearance : Slightly hazy pale yellow with a big foamy and fluffy white head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : I can smell the fresh leafy hops with the fruity mango notes while pouring it. Really appealing ! Very fruity with nice malts.
Taste : Malt and leafy fruity hops. Finish rather floral and bitter. Sticky mouthfeel. Very soft carbonation but it fits the beer well. Slightly floral on the finish.
Overall : Awesome nose. Very nice taste. Very light yet packed with juicy hops. Carbonation could be a tad fizzier. This is on my top 3 APAs for sure.

Murky orangish, huge rocky head, great lacing. Orange and grapefruit zest up front, pine resin, not much for malt in aroma. Flavor seems heavy on the bittering, lots of resin, sticky, again not much for malt. Highly carbonated, cleans palate.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Very nice, very hoppy. Pours yellow, medium to high carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Very nice hop flavor, citrus, pine. A really nice beer. Re-rated this one more favorably based on trying a few recently....I really like this one. Since Zombie Dust is so hard to get, I’ve been scoping out alternatives with similar profiles, and this one may be the most similar so far.
