4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Uber fresh 12oz bottle. Cloudy honey colored pour with nice white head some retention and a little cling. Nose is hops, peach, citrus, and floral notes Taste has some nice front end bite and then a nice citrus taste in the middle with a small bite on the back. Crisp and light on the palate. Overall a great PA. In the same league as Alpine Hoppy Birthday.

Zombie Dust pours dark amber orangish color. Very little head is poured and not much lacing throughout the glass.
Right off the bat you know this is not your normal Pale Ale. A unique and big smell for the style. Citra says hello here. Citrus smacks the nostril. Other tropical fruits come in next with some floral notes and a biscuit malt backbone. Let this one warm up a bit, then just sit there and take it in. Itís not super hoppy. Itís not super malty. Itís just right.
This beer pulls off a bit of a magic trick when it comes to the taste. Up front is bitter citrus. Then it melds into the tropical fruit and honey taste, then once again it does another trick and ends with a caramel and biscuit malt. Itís unique to any Pale Ale Iíve had. Itís big and packed with flavor while being totally balanced along the way. Lovely.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth. Goes down perfectly.

I think it is close to Bellís Hopslam, but without the hops after taste. It is also much less expensive than Hopslam, but availability can be an issue. I stopped by FFF last Friday and guys were lining up to buy cases of this stuff. I think it is great, but like Hopslam a little better.

bright orange. Aroma of light peach and hops, with hints of grapefruit. Tastes smooth, with lots of grapefruit. Backend citrus similar to eating a grapefruit. Despite all the citrus and fruit flavors though, it holds itís pale ale name well, with an intriguing hoppy profile.

2012-01-19. Lightly hazy golden orange body with a modest foamy white head. 3+ Nice citrusy hop aroma with lots of grapefruit and grapefruit seeds, lemon drop candy, sweaty resin notes as you go on. 7+ Flavour is similar, grapefruit and lemon, sweaty resiny hops, grapefruit seeds linger in the finish. 7+ Smooth average to light body. Quite nice and enjoyable but I had high hopes for it to be even better than it is. Bottle via trade with flandersned
