Aroma- massive citrus, including tangerines, peaches, guava, and passion fruit
Appearance- light yellow with a pillowy white head
Taste- tropical fruit juices, nice bite of hops, more light fruits intertwined with a smoothness from the hops
Palate- perfect for the style
Overall- A one or two trick pony for sure. Very simple yet divinely tasty. 3F knows how to do IPAS and APAS.

trade with a generous person @CCB Black Friday-12oz bottle-tight offwhite head with trailing lace-gold. A-citrus-tangerine&lemon/floral, sweet lt malt. T-herbal/dank hops with some bite, musty lt/med malt. Seems to clash at first, after 4 oz becomes more enjoyable.

tap - the aroma and nose is world class - maybe the best Iíve encountered. Killer hops - smooth finish. Surprised itís only 6.4%, seemed much higher.
Awesome beer - Iím sure the more I try it the fonder Iíll become of it

Taken from my BA account, reviewed 3/5/12
Live tasting 12 oz. bottle into Delirium tulip, bottle thanks to Peacehammer (see ya Thursday!)
Appearance; pours a lovely slightly hazy light orange/amber color with a finger of slightly bubbly pale straw colored head. Retention is good, and the head falls after a few minutes. Lacing is great with a ton of lace clinging in sheets to the sides of the glass.
Smell; holy grapefruit Batman!!! Zombie Dust features grapefruit by the ton, notes of pineapple and hints of resinous pine weave in and out.
Taste; wave upon wave of grapefruit upon grapefruit washes over my tongue. As with the smell, pineapple and resins are beautifully interwoven with the grapefruit. Slight notes of orange and lemon rinds also appear.
Mouthfeel; a medium bodied beer, with just enough carbonation to compliment the feel of the brew. Might be a tad on the lighter side for this style but Iím sure not gonna complain about that.
Overall; WOW. An outstanding pale (PALE?!?!) ale that I would definitely stack up against any standard IPA, and quite a few DIPAís. There really isnít anything pale about this brew. Bravo FFF, this beer is incredible, drinkable every day without getting boring, but awesome enough to be a special occasion brew. I will absolutely seek this beer out again, and highly recommend that you do as well.

An Incredible IPA! A nice resinous pine and loads of citrus, prolly due to the citra hops. Really tasty!

Love at first taste! This is my all-time favorite, just wish it was easier to find. Can get at Trion Tavern in New Haven, IN, but its pricey (worth it!). Wonderful citrus pop both in smell and taste, and the grapefruit notes prevail. Bag this stuff, and poke a IV in my arm. Iím hooked!

This is one of my all time favorite beers. Itís probably the best smelling pale ale out there. It smells like a citrus flower garden. It tastes the same. There isnít a lot of malt in this one, so you get mainly hop bitterness in the flavor, but it is not out of balance. Itís a very tasty, refreshing beer. FFF at their best.

What an amazing Pale Ale! Aroma of citrus and hops hops hops! Very well balanced but for those looking for a "traditional" Pale Ale, look elsewhere....this borders more to IPA. I happen to love it though!
