4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At the Savor beer fest. Easily one of the best pale ales made. The aroma is beautiful citrus, light tropical fruits. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is just like the aroma. Very drinkable. The finish is citrus. Medium in body. Excellent.

Deliciously pungent Citra hops tickle my senses. Pineapple, juicy tropical fruits, floral; ends with a hint of pine on the back end.
A marvelous concoction of hops, malt, and juicy fruits sails across my palate. There really isn't a better beer in this style: Zombie Dust trumps all (and has no peers). Wish I could drink this all day, every day.

Tap at Savor. Clean amber pour with eggshell head that lasts even in a 2oz pour. Beautifully refined hop aromas. Lots of velvety citrus (how can a smell be velvety? I dunno but this shit is) with a lightly candied note and the faintest of malt profiles. Falls a little flat on the palate if you ask me. Still full of citric character but not as robust as the nose. Solid stuff but disappointed compared to hype.

Bottle from my buddy Elliot. Thanks. Pours a hazy burnt orange with a half finger of off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter. Loads of citrus and pineapple. Full bodied with a somewhat thicker texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, pretty darn awesome. I know people like to give three floyds static, but this is really good.

Delicious! Found this being served in bottles in a suburban Chicago Indian restaurant. For real. What a surprise, and a great accompaniment to spicy food.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 Re-rate because of bad rating earlier. No problem since this is an absolutely amazing beer.
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a lacy, frothy white head. Aroma if citrus, pine, grass, some caramel and malts. A bit creamy. Quite bitter, light sweet. Very well balanced, maybe the most balanced I’ve seen so far. Very drinkable. If I had to choose one beer I could have for the rest of my life, this would be it. Medium body with average carbonation.

On tap @CBC13. Aroma is very hoppy; graprefruit, citrus, and faint tropical fruit. Taste the same hop notes, malt and sweetness. Bitter and clean finish.

Bottle. 5/17/13. Pours pale gold with a thin, bubbly white head. Aroma is nice, simple, very aromatic; tropical fruits, sweetness, spice, citrus. Taste is similar; tropical fruits, a good amount of citrus and some spiciness. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Some light lacing. Crisp, refreshing; full-flavored. This was excellent, no questions asked. However, it is absolutely not worth the hype that surrounds it.
