3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 355ml - Semi hazy golden orange beer with a large frothy white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of pine, citrus, spices and mango. Flavor is fruity with notes of citrus, pine, spices and again mango. On the verge to being an IPA, but still a smack in the face of how a single hop Citra is meant to be presented.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 Pale deep golden/copper pour with a thin creamy off white head and sticky striped lacing ... aroma of citra hops for sure, pineapples, citrusy grapefruit rinds, tropical fruits lovely aroma with a light caramel malt character .... taste is bitter and has loads of pineapple, grapefruity (the whole tropical/citrusy) hop punch ... has a bit of biscuity and caramel malt with a nice rindy bitter lingering bite ... finish is dry and just has a bitter hop that stays with you and doesn’t quit .... abv hidden well ... another pale ale from these guys that blows away most ipa’s

Very good beer but feel like it was over hyped which caused it not to quite live up to expectations. Definitely would drink again.

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.
