4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A huge grapefruit nose overpowers any other aroma, which isn't a bad thing really.
Clear honey colored pour with a fine, robust off-white head. Nice lacing left on the glass.
Flavor is sweet malt balanced by floral and citrus hops.
Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, medium body.
Overall, this is one of my favorite IPAs. Hoppy without becoming off balanced. If it were easier to find it would be even better.

Hazy golden pour. Big citra aromas. Medium body, clean straightforward bitterness with the CItra shining all the way, but not too much catpissy. I’m not a fan of single CItra hop, but this one was really easy to drink. For Citra lovers.

Bottle pour into a pint glass. Awesome beer. Second one of 3F I’ve had and colored me impressed. They’re almost as good as Surly... :) Good lacing on this beer. Citrus on the nose and taste. Bitter and golden colored. Bring on the zombie apocalypse!

Pours from the bottle a nice coppery color with a nice tan head on top. Has a sweet aroma and a rich malt flavor hinted by some citrusy notes. Picks up some great notes from the citra hops. A great pale ale to try!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 If you had to pick one American Pale Ale to try before you die, try Zombie Dust. Not only does it have amazing artwork, you are literally left in the dust from this beer and chasing to try more. Upon taking in the aroma, you smell apricot, grapefruit, and other tropical fruits. The alcohol is not very noticeable.
The taste is grapefruit mixed with mouth watering hops. Little did I know that there is only one hop used: Citra hops. The palate is warmed but not overwhelmed. tropical fruits come through once again. The best thing about this beer is the after taste which begs you to drink more, and more. It is satisfying to a crisp. For IPA fans, this is not a bitter beer. It is strong enough for you to enjoy though and should be tried if you live in Indiana. Having been to the brewpub in Munster many times, Try it straight from the cask and you will not be disappointed. Tap is good as well as bottles, but the cask seemed absolutely the best. The fruit flavors are at their freshest and shine though. Do not try if the bottles are more than a week old, as you will not have the same tasting experience. This one particular hop used tastes best fresh in this beer! Hope this helped. Try if you can, and remember this: if will leave you in the dust begging for more.

From John’s stash. Pours reddish copper with a uniform beige head that gradually melts away. The aroma is slightly sweet biscuit and citrus. There is a rich pale malt flavor with a sticky citrus finish. Slightly unbalanced toward citra hop, as it should be. I could drink a lot of this.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 Unclear Deep orange amber. Large fluffy white head, good lace. Aroma is loaded with hops, citrus, super aromatic. Medium body, sweet, pleasant bitterness. Lasting bitter hops finish with quite a bit of drying. Flavor is loaded with hops - citrus.

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.
