this beer is world class!! I dont think that anyone could find anything bad to say about this beer. It might not be your favorite, but you will definitely agree with EVERYONE else that it is a perfectly balanced and smooth as it can be.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a deep golden amber with a near non-existant head. Nose is sweet, fruity hops - some resin notes. Beer is carbonated well. Sweet for an IPA - which mostly means it has a solid malt backbone. Good hop bitterness on the finish, but the hop presence certainly doesn’t hit you in the face - which is a nice change of pace. Really I can’t find anything wrong with this beer!

laiti (5970) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2012
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar
Aroma is wonderful with hops, fruits, gooseberry bush and some resin. Flavour is rather hoppy with sweetish, exotic fruits, resin and some caramel. Very refreshing and good, probably the best APA Ive had.

Pours pale clear amber color with medium-sized head. Aroma of very fresh and crisp fruits, pine needles, orange peel, lots of hops, caramel and floral notes. Flavour of orange, mandarin, mild caramel, lemon, hops and pine needles. An excellent brew with very appealing aroma. Top notch.

lusikka (6551) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a slightly hazy, copper orange colour with a lacy head. Aroma of very, very intensive Citra hops and strong fruitiness. Flavour is also very intensive; strong floral hops, citrus, caramel and lovely exotic fruitiness. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, bitter, fruity and tangy finish. Excellent. 9-4-8-4-16 4.1, 05/2012.

Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a golden orange colour with a small head. Nice lacing. Aroma of orange, earthiness, floral notes. Rich and strong flavour with a massive fruity hop kick, grapefruit and caramel just enough to balance the flavour. Beautiful.

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen

Pours clear copper orange with a smooth foamy head. Nice aroma of fruity hops, citrus, lemon, caramel malts and toffee. Taste is extremely well balanced with a lot of citrusy fruity hops and caramel malts. Finish is hoppy and fruity with lemony notes and hints of malts. Great, extremely tasty APA.

Re-rated at Three Floyds Bar, Copenhagen. Even fresher than last time. Simply an awesome APA.

sunevdj (3271) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
On tap at mikkeller. Pours a clear orange with a tiny off-white head and hints of lacings. Bitter with some sweetness. Lots of hoppy aromas of citrus, lime and flowers. Also hoppy hints of grapefruit, nutmeg and spruce. Medium bodied with hints of that fullness known from Sorachi Ace hops. Medium to soft carbonation. Long bitter finish.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2012 Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Pours clear golden with a small head. Aroma is full of fresh and zesty Citra hops, loads of citrus, mango, pineapple, lovely bright and fruity hoppiness, very bright and clean. A small hint of biscuity malt im te nose as well. Taste is just as good - lots of Citra hop notes, a very good showcase of this hop - pineapple, mango, citrus and a small grassy note as you burp. A good amount og malt in the body, which makes it very balanced. Lovey stuff, I could session this for hours.

In retrospect I had to bump this baby up because it was a better pale ale than Alpha King, which I had again a couple of days after having Zombie Dust, Alpha King still being worth the 4.1 I gave it when I originally rated it. Using logical deduction, you can easily figure out that this beer is worth at least 4.1, and not the 4.0 that I originally rated it. As it was also better than Alpha King, thus its current rating of 4.2
