Mostly a straight up barely above average wheat if you ask me. Iím getting strong banana, clove, hints of bubblegum and small bits of flowery hopiness. Wonít have again, unless I find out this is an older not so fresh version Iím drinking.

I'm a bit spoiled in that being from the region I've enjoyed this beer pretty much on demand for years now. But I'm actually rating it after drinking from my trading stock while in Oregon and was motivated to do so after trying some great Northwest style IPAs. Zombie has great amber color, the aroma is this sexy BO thing, the Citra hop is perfectly balanced and the finish lingers leaving you wanting more. Truly a world class pale ale (it's really an IPA), distinctive and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: First off, letís be honest. This is not a pale ale. Itís a friggin IPA. Gold color with a nice head and super hoppy in flavor as well as finish. What was nice is that even though it was dominant in hops in the finish it wasnít blunt bitterness. You could taste the hop characteristics as well.

Draft at Taste the Rarity Oh man, the line was longest for this, but I went back for it 3 times I liked it so much. Tied for best of the day for me with the Union Gose. Pours a hazy orange with a pretty white head. Hay, peaches, and of course grapefruit in the aroma. Imminently drinkable, well balanced tending towards the drier side, clean and balanced. Wonderful APA

If I were about to become a zombie I would kindly ask the zombie about to convert me (eat a healthy but convertible amount) to kindly pause and allow me one last taste of the human world. This might be my choice. Full bouquet aroma and after-taste coupled with a perfect citra taste to the tongue. Perfect hoppiness. Cask tap at Fountainhead in Chicago. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Piece with the Duke. Pours a dark clear gold with a lasting off white head, nice lacing. Aroma of pink starburst, guava, mango, tangerine, oozy pine sap, grass. Flavor is sweet tangerine and tropical fruits up front, morphs to bready malt into a piney finish. Balance here is impeccable, perfect execution of the style. Light/Med mouthfeel, tickly carbo. If zombie dust tastes this good, I'm hoping for the apocalypse.

This beer definitely seperates itself from the pack in being so nicely balanced in hops, brightly floral, crisp, and showcasing a very distinct hop note without booziness or too much complexity. Very drinkable and enjoyable during this season, but could use a little more hop complexity for my taste. Overall very nice.

Fresh Bottle shared by Tony at RBAG. Golden pour, light whithe head. Aroma is tropical fruit, light hops, malty sweetness. Taste is light floral hops up front, light sweetness follows with some tropical fruit mixed in, crisp clean mild bitter finish. Excellent stuff.

seymour (1401) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Tasted at Jasonís anti-Homebrew-Club gathering, thanks for sharing! It poured a mostly clear golden colour, some chill-haze, with thin but persistent white foam and lace. Non-descript maltbill overpowered by intensely citrusy American hop bitterness, flavour, and aroma. Light-medium body, average carbonation, hoppy aftertaste. Good but not great. Having hoped so long for a chance to try it, perhaps I was bound to be a bit underwhelmed.
