sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2013
12 oz bottle, thanks Ryan. Almost unnoticeably hazy amber; very large white, frothy, rocky head dissipates into a sparse covering and a medium to large ring; heavy lacing. Aroma is warm and toasty with sweet malt, grapefruit, pine sap, and barely a hint of caramel. First taste makes me think this is going to be another unbalanced hop bomb, but over time this thing really smooths out; more pine and citrus here but it gets more drinkable after sitting a bit; very lengthy orange/pine finish with light caramel. Really impressed with the body; heavy carbonation but it’s full and smooth and almost creamy; light stickiness; does thin out a bit after sitting out once the carbonation bleeds out. The 100/100 score on this one suggests a great number of raters are on drugs, but this is outstanding and probably really does deserve 99th-100th percentile in the APA category. (But 100 overall? Come on...) Shame this is so hard to get; guess I’ll have to live with Alpha King...

Not sure why it is labeled pale because it has a sharp citrus flavor with a clean dry finish. Excellent!

MSBrindbergs (294) - Solna, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2014
Fat på Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm. Dimmig/grumlig bärnsten med vitt skum. Doftar så jävla bra av tropisk frukt, ananas, mango osv. Perfekt balanserad i sötman och beskan. Jag är mållös och då är jag ändå förkyld! Vilken jävla öl... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zombie Dust pours a mostly clear light yellow with a thick creamy off-white head that lasts a good while. The aroma is citrus, citrus and more citrus. The flavor is citrus heavy with a but of caramel and bread. Overall this is a tasty beer.

Bottle. Finally I got to try this beauty. Hazy amber body with a forever lasing offwhite head. Fruit, pineapple, peach, hops, citrus. I think i’m in heaven. So delicious.

Holmen1 (2376) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
Kveldens andre fatøl på Ghost Brewers’ Night på Cardinal: nokså kort skum, men en nydelig aroma og frisk munnfylde. Slank og allikevel enormt smaksrik. Citrus, sydfrukter, appelsin(marmelade). Varig ettersmak. Balansekunst av klasse - en femstjerners apa som jeg bare må prøve igjen.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, july 24th 2014. Hazy yellow body with a lively white head. Citra bomb aroma, fresh and crisp grapefruit and orange, taste is similar, with a subtle honeyish sweetness. Good bitterness and a dry fruity finish, an excellent thirst quencher with lots of citrus taste

Hard to find much wrong with this. Drink it fresh of course, as without that it loses its fantastic citra aroma and balanced bitterness. Pretty much the perfect drinker.

It poured a cloudy amber/gold color with a white head. The aroma was of grass, citrus, grapefruit, peach, pineapple with some pine and sweet malty notes. The taste was sweet with some mild hoppiness, tropical fruits and floral notes. Good stuff.
