UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 I originally reviewed this back on 03-31-2012 and gave it a 3.55. I believe the bottle was old as I got some oddly savory (pizza goldfish) flavors and aromas. Take two on a fresher bottle! 12 oz bottle into a 3F pint glass. This was picked up in early July. Reviewing on 7/16/2012. A - Golden clear amber body. Splotchy one finger off-white head. Really small and tight bubbles. Great lacing and retention. S - Very grapefruit and mango heavy with some caramel malts. There is also a savory and danky spice to the aroma. A bit of grass and earthiness in the finish. T - More of the grapefruit and mango hops with that dankiness. Some caramel malts and a bitter finish, although the bitterness quickly washes away. Really awesome blend of citrus and tropical flavors with a pleasant spicy earthiness. Mouth feel is medium to light with nice carbonation. O - Probably the best pale ale Iíve had, although I feel like 3F is stretching the category a bit as its pretty much an IPA. Having a fresh bottle certainly renewed my faith in the citra hop.

Nice hops aroma. Big malty backbone. Unlike a west coast ipa but pretty decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Mike12da. Thanks. Big tropical fruit (mango) nose w/ a touch of earthiness. Dusky gold, with steady centered carbonation and thick lacing. Solid and fruity with a slight alc warmth. Tastes more like an IPA, really. Medium body. Even at a low alc level, this holds all the flavors together well. Easy and smooth. Could drink quite a few of these without tiring of it.

Bottle shared by Mike12da. Lovely nose of tropical fruit, like papaya, pine, grass. Subtle and beautiful. Pretty deep honey gold color with a low head. Sweet and fruity flavor, mango, orange, pepper, pine. Smooth, with low alcohol presence. Oily palate. Nicely bitter finish. Nose outshines the flavor a bit.

I donít usually go for pale ales but with the hype surrounding Zombie Dust, I gave it a try. This is great for this style. Itís like a light and crisp IPA with a beautiful undertone of luscious fruit. I would make this a regular session beer if I had better access to it. For now Iím content with the occasional 4-pack. Great brew overall.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - MAR 30, 2012
Clear nectarine-gold pour with a thin, lacy white heady. Citrus, mango funk, melon, pineapple, and some spicy garden roots in the nose. I know this is all about the hops, but the malt presence is too light for my personal taste preference. Some light crackery malt shows up mid-late, as does a twinge of alcohol. Medium body, average carb, with a lasting grassy bitterness in the finish. Good beer, quite drinkable, and I can definitely see why people love it. The nose is great, but is overall just too lean in ísubstance/flavorí for me to get much more excited than a mid-three score.

Lightly sweet caramel under layers of hops stone fruits... Amazing aroma for a pale... Unmistakably a pale ale with intense aroma... Lively medium bodied dry finish... Grassy flavors mingle with fruity flavors with a light light note of the sweetness from the aroma.... An excellent pale... Clear pale amber with a lingering retentive head ... Lacing for days...
