Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - SEP 12, 2013
This one blows me away every time. It seems more like a fall ipa than an apa, and if it were an ipa it would be in my top five. Its like biting into a caramel orange with toasted mango filling. Was far and away the best apa in the world until FFF surpassed their own standard with zombie dust. Go get some right now!

SinH4 (2306) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 Tap. Surprisingly dark brownish color with big head. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruits, resinous, . Taste is bread, nice mango & grapefruit hop punch, honey and caramel as well. Bitter finish. Quite full-bodied as well (not surprising at this ABV). A very good APA, but it doesn’t hold up well.

copestx (59) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2016
Bottles at home. Super refreshing, mountains of citrus hops but nicely balanced. Good body/palate but not overwhelming, exactly what a pale should be. One of the best pales I’ve ever had, and IMO better than Zombie Dust.

LouisP (108) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Cette bière me surprend. C’est amer et sucré, c’est malté et caramelisé en même temps, et ça me surprend. J’ai l’impression que le liquide se perd dans toute ses subtilités. On a également un gout savonneux du houblon qui me déstabilise. Bref, tout ça me surprend et laisse en incompréhension face au hype de cette bière recherchée.
