4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice hazy darker orange color with a small white head that leaves great lacing. Aroma is heavy of orange/grapefruit, citrus, hops, grass and some pine and malt. Flavor is moderate sweetness with fruit, citrus, pine notes and medium hoppiness that strengthens as it warms up. There is a medium bitter/hop finish with not much else. Mouthfeel is overall dry and carbonation is average. This is a solid beer.

12 oz bottle pour a few months back. APAís are quickly becoming one of my favorites styles of craft. Zombie Dust is a near perfect beer. Itís complexity of hop, malt and smoothness makes you want to keep on sucking these down. If you get your hands on ZD, savor the moment! Great job 3Floyds!

Had to have this at Frankís tasting because an unnamed individual who had promised to save me a bottle was unable to control himself and drank up all he had very speedily, altho after having some, I can sympathize with that. Nice color. Aroma of honeysuckle, orange, and lemon. The flavor is wonderfully balanced, with orange cranberry muffin, lemon oil, apricot, and pine. It is super flavorful for a brew with a modest ABV, & very drinkable too! I can see why people are hustling to get their hands on it. The best beer Iíve had in quite some time. Another triumph from 3F!

Awesome brew. The brewery often sells out of cases of this beer and for good reason. As much as I love 3F Gumball Head, this beer is notch up. An ueber hoppy APA with mostly late addition Citra hops. A bit cloudy in appearance. Big citrus-y grapefruit flavor with a solid malt backbone. This beer never disappoints. If you can get your hands on one...do it.

Top 5 beer had many times on tap at 3F brew pub and in bottles. Terrific nose and strong citrus flavor with a nice bitter bite finish.. Unique in that it has spawned many copycat brews. Will continue to drive down to Munster on a regular basis.

Amber pour with a white head. Aromas of pine and citrus hops. Flavor is very similar with a nice malt backbone. Finish is slightly bitter hop bite but not too much. Very drinkable, good session beer.

Bottle courtesy of agl108. A hazy rust/amber pour with a thick beige head. Pine, grass, zesty citrus rinds, grapefruits, caramel, spice, and a hearty breadiness comprise the aroma. Goes down medium to full-bodied. Caramel, butterscotch, and sugar cookies dominate the initial taste. Zesty citrus rinds and grapefruits finish things off. Spicy with some anise cookies here and there. Slightly bitter at the end. Definitely a unique taste.

A totally unexpected bonus in a trade from shrubber85, cheers Roger!
Pours a very hazy deep amber with sizable amber tinged fine cream head. Initial aroma is fantastic with freshly crushed pineneedles and sweet mangoes, though this subsides somewhat on standing for a while. Initial mouthful is a pithy fizz bomb but as it warms out comes some lovely rounded seville marmelade, pinenes and a warming base of orange shortcake all in all working fairly well. Full bodied and sweetyet pithy finish. I can see why this rates so highly.

Gift bottle. Pours dark orange with a light white head. A bit of pine on the nose. Nice malt backbone. Thereís some hop bite on the finish. Itís solid. Itís quaffable. I donít know if itís one of the best of the style.
