12oz bottle, no date, poured into a Surly pint glass. Pours a dark honey-gold, with a frothy white head on top. Great sticky lace holds on for dear life. "The nose, the nose, my kingdom for the nose." All things holy, this is an amazing aroma. Fresh hops, pine needles, citrus zest, and a dry hay-like aroma. Other beers have bits and pieces of this aroma, but this is so potent and so fresh. Frick. I want to "cologne-up" with this stuff. The body is well-balanced and carbed up well. Crisp and clean, not too heavy. Holds its own with the ABV. Hops, hops, hops. Yes, please. Fresh green hops, grapefruit, melon, orange slices, honey - all melded perfectly to make this splendid beer. This beer is bitter, no doubt, but I love that it doesn’t linger in any harsh manner. The finish is short, which I like and don’t like at the same time. I like that it keeps me sipping (or gulping) more and more, but I don’t like that my glass is soon empty, unable to be filled with this blessed brew again. More ZD, please!!!

355ml bottle courtesy of the sister-in-law and man. A fabulous pale ale; strong yet refreshing. Hoppy tastes lead citrus and elderflower. Bitter aftertaste. Perfect accompaniment to crisps or nuts.

This is one of those American Pale ales that Exemplifies this style. Beautiful with a resin-y delicious smelling head. The flavor follows through in a big way. Just delicious!

WHY DIDN’T I BUY A CASE!!! That’s you reaction after you taste this at 3 floyds brewpub and then try to go to their attached store only to find out that they are sold out! If you like an aggressive beer with bold hop forward flavors then I highly suggest buying at least one case of this without hesitation. I should have.

Drucken på Mikkeller, Stockholm. Svagare doft än väntat, men när drycken når munnen blir det annorlunda. Perfekt kropp och smaken är en fin symbios av beska och passionsfrukt. Grym! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What can really be said about Zombie Dust? Golden orange appearance with soft, white head. Nose is of pine, resin, bitter orange, grapefruit, and ’catty’. Taste is of pine sap, orange, savory caramels, sulfur, and alcohol. Yep... It’s good.

Svesse (6297) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
(Draught at Mikkeler Bar Stockholm, 12 Sep 2014) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of crystal malt, citrus, grapefruit and resin. Malty, hoppy taste with slightly harsh crystal malt, citrus, grapefruit and a generous resiny/citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty, with a generous hop presence. Nice one.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy amber with a two finger white head and nice lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and spruce. Flavor is medium lingering bitter. Delicious!

2014.12.11 - glass courtesy Fuzzy. My first Three Floyds. Big hop presence, yet super smooth. Very nice, repeat purchase worthy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I am such an IPA freak now most Pale Ales don't do much for me. This is a very good Pale Ale with great taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with pillowy white head, good retention and lacing. Aroma is amost as resinous as fresh hop flowers with notes of melon, dragonfruit, rosehips, orange peel mild hints of crushed pine needles. Flavor really follows through on the promise of the nose - mild sweetness,apricot, passionfruit, lingering cantalope notes - lots of fruitiness here from the hops and very little barley showing through. A very pleasant mild resiny bitterness and apricot lasts minutes after a sip. This beer almost works as a reversal of the brewing adage that hops are added to temper the sweetness of the malt, here we have a backbone of hops and just malt added to contribute enough sweetness to balance the pungency of the hops. Exciting.
