Overall, probably one of the best IPAs out there from midwest breweries (ehhem mad shouts out to Dark Horse Crooked Tree). I’ll start with the the downside(s), which is a short list. 1. They do not make enough of it. It is incredibly hard to find. Obviously this isn’t against the quality of the beer, just a general annoyance that lingers when one approaches the experience of the zombie dust. I wish I had a "I am incredibly happy I finally found anouther six pack of this beer" feeling but I don’t. It sours the mouth. 2. The aroma belies the actual complex and satisfying experience of this beer. Contrary to what it is held out to be, I found the aroma to be a sterile and trite PA smell: some je ne sais quoi PA smell--citrus, pine, whatever, something indicative of PA. The taste is another story. It accomplishes what it sets out to do: be an american pale ale, but does so with an unabashed americanism that will rejuvinate the dead parts of your soul, hence the name, zomie dust. Hints of caramel, cooking bread, nuts, and almost roasted coffee beans combine into what almost turns into drinking candy with a satisfying bittered finish--literally due to the hops but also due to the fact you wish you could keep drinking this beer forever. It also has a good ABV too at 6.2% for everything it accomplishes in the taste and look dept. w

I’ve had this a number of times but haven’t had rated it. Pour from a bottle is a nice light orange amber with a small white head. Aroma is a nice subtle combination of pale malt and hops that remind me of orange zest. Taste is a little sweet with a nice bitterness. Leaves a clean taste at the end.

A centimeter of dense white head on a chestnut beer. The aroma is beautiful, with peach, mango and citrus notes, while the taste is no less wonderful and fruity, with lots of passionfruit. Beyond that, it’s nothing complex, but very clean and drinkable with firm bitterness at the finish. Thanks for the Xmas present, Janet!

355ml bottle courtesy of the sister-in-law and man. A fabulous pale ale; strong yet refreshing. Hoppy tastes lead citrus and elderflower. Bitter aftertaste. Perfect accompaniment to crisps or nuts.

This is one of those American Pale ales that Exemplifies this style. Beautiful with a resin-y delicious smelling head. The flavor follows through in a big way. Just delicious!

WHY DIDN’T I BUY A CASE!!! That’s you reaction after you taste this at 3 floyds brewpub and then try to go to their attached store only to find out that they are sold out! If you like an aggressive beer with bold hop forward flavors then I highly suggest buying at least one case of this without hesitation. I should have.

Drucken på Mikkeller, Stockholm. Svagare doft än väntat, men när drycken når munnen blir det annorlunda. Perfekt kropp och smaken är en fin symbios av beska och passionsfrukt. Grym! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What can really be said about Zombie Dust? Golden orange appearance with soft, white head. Nose is of pine, resin, bitter orange, grapefruit, and ’catty’. Taste is of pine sap, orange, savory caramels, sulfur, and alcohol. Yep... It’s good.

Svesse (6634) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
(Draught at Mikkeler Bar Stockholm, 12 Sep 2014) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of crystal malt, citrus, grapefruit and resin. Malty, hoppy taste with slightly harsh crystal malt, citrus, grapefruit and a generous resiny/citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty, with a generous hop presence. Nice one.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy amber with a two finger white head and nice lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and spruce. Flavor is medium lingering bitter. Delicious!
