Wow. One of the best smelling beers if not the best Iíve ever smelled! The best APA I have had. Give it up for Three Floyds, man what an awesome brewery! Bought a six pack at the brewery and did a tour. I definitely understand why its one of the best breweries on the planet! Been looking forward to trying this beer for a while and it absolutely lived up to the hype!

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.
