Wow, it may be impossible to put words together to describe this beer. Hoppy with massive citrus flavors, but superbly drinkable. It pours yellow with a great white head. The palate is assaulted by the flavors of "C" hops with very slight malts. Overall this is the Pale Ale to judge all others against. I think I have a challenger in a local Pale Ale but this is seriously good.

Drank before Walking Dead season finale!
super aromatic, I could smell it a foot away. Lots of hops and citrus. Larger than life white head.
Taste is very smooth. Citrus and hops. Medium body. Starts very light and citrus. Moves to a hoppy, deeper taste. Dries off a little at the end, but not too much.

Pours a clear, deep golden color with no head. Head never developed as a consequence of the care taken in the pour by the attendant. Incidentally, it was nice to see that the 3 Floyds staff were just as cheerful as ever *sarcasm*. Even as guests of Firestone-Walker after having been invited to their beer festival, the 3 Floyds staff were lifeless, provided no information about their beers, and couldnít even muster a smile or spare a "youíre welcome." Anyway, back to Zombie Dust. The beer has a glorious floral bouquet with just a hint of peat. The mouthfeel, which enjoys a decent balance of carbonation, is good for the style. The flavor is grapefruit forward with notes of peat. A good effort.

Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin off-white film of head and light lacing. Aroma is all kinds of fresh citra hops, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste follows, a quick bitter finish that makes it one of the easiest drinking beers. Very flavorful for the abv, great stuff.

Bottle. Hazy orange liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, pineapple, weed, biscuit, mango, pine, spruce, grape fruit and floral hops. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of pineapple, marmalade, biscuit, light caramel and mango. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very balanced and complex, also very hoppy.

Location/Date:Draft on March 27th, 2013 at Churchkey.
Appearance: Pours a clear orange.
Aroma: Aroma of light citrus, pine
Taste: Medium high bitterness for the style, but not so much that itís not enjoyable. Light orange.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering hop aftertaste.
Summary: A really good APA that Iíve been wanting to try for awhile. This one is always on the front of RB and well deserved, although I donít think itís THAT different than Alpha King which is always available.

12-oz. Once you pop, you canít stop. Pours a murky dark amber with bright golden brown edges and a loose and creamy tan head. Huge fragrant orange notes all over the nose, very intensely aromatic. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty caramel, bright citrus notes, and some resin on the mid palate. Long orange and pine resin finish. Very appetizing. Wonderful beer. Would happily drink this all the time.
