3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly passion fruit, apricot, resin, and citrus in the aroma. Filled my nonic imperial pint well with an inch of head. Taste is a bit spicier than the aroma indicated, but very drinkable. Well done pale ale that would sure look nice in six packs.

Enjoyed on tap at the Map Room while nursing a rough bout of sickness, also didn’t take tasting notes while enjoying this. From what I remember, this was a pretty great pale ale with a nice bitter bite. Huge citrus notes with nice malty notes as well. Great one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at DLD 2013. Pours a bright golden color with a thick white head. Aroma of tropical fruit hoppiness, focusing on pineapple, peach, melon, shades of mango. Maybe a bit of honey-bread malts. Flavor is crisp, hoppy, bitter, with medium sweet hop notes. Pours a nice clear golden color with a white head. Medium bodied, fluffy texture, with above average carbonation. Finishes on a tropical fruit kick.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of pine needles, citrus hops and sweet apricots. The taste was of sweet fruit taste with a decent hop bite and some syrup in the aftertaste. There is a little bitterness towards the finish. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at DLD 2013. Pours a nice clear golden color with a white head. The aroma hints that this one will be hop-forward but it’s really the sweet malts that lead the way here. Tropical fruit-style hoppiness - mango, melon, peach - and honey, sweet malts, and a bit of fresh cut grass. Light-medium bodied, with mellow carbonation and a malty, almost chewy mouthfeel. For those that like a big, sweet APA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a pint draft pour at Dark Lord Day in Munster, Indiana. It was very clear and gold. Big nose of citrus hops. Medium body. Clean mouth feel. Flavor is really well balanced between the malts and hops. Great light bitter finish. This is as about as refreshing and easy drinking as a beer can be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint on draft at DLD. A clear golden beer that didn’t have a lot of head. I was told this was their Zombie Dust with Simcoe hops. They brought a nice mix of citrus and pine in both aroma and flavor. Malts were light and that is the case with ZD. Bitterness was moderate. A winner.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Draft. Clear deep amber. Lasting off-white head. Some funky earthyness, little woody, grass. Wasnt enough sweetness or fruity hopness to balance this out enough for me.Creamy, medium body. Good not great.
