4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Pours a dark orange color with a finger length white head. Dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing. Smells of intense, juicy, sweet fruits like pineapple, mango, grapefruit, some peach, tiny bit of floral notes, lots of tropical fruit, sweet carmel. Almost like a bubblegum smell. Taste starts a hefty dose of citrus, sweet, savory fruits like pineapple, mango, and peach, get some floral qualities as well. Very classic floyds taste. Then gets even sweeter with the carmel malts and more fruits. Then finishes with more citrus fruits, even more tropical fruits, more carmel. Nice dry finish. During the entire taste profile, a good amount of hop bitterness lingers. Somewhat bitter, but just so darn smooth, fruity, and refreshing and definitely not as intense as the aroma suggests. Mouthfeel is creamy. Medium body with a good amount of carbonation, which adds to the refreshing quality of the beer. Have had it many times, and never ceases to amaze me. Best session beer on the market.

Fresh on tap. My favorite APA to date because it delivers the dank west coast pale characteristics at just the right ABV. The flavor doesn't get lost as you swish around a time or two and you ain't going to fall over after a couple.

Really good. Sweet hops up front with a good malt backbone. Not much more that hasn’t already been said. Dig it.

I have had this many time and it is always consistently great. Has a nice hoppy grassy aroma and a clear golden amber color with an off white two finger head. Taste is on the dry side with that good hop grass and straw flavor. Carbonation is just right with this beer going down very smooth. An all time favorite for me.

From T-Roy. Pours a clear deep orange color with off white head. Citrusy hop character followed by piney and danky notes. More of the danky piney hops in the flavor with some mild citrus. Pretty goooood beer.

thanks to seth823 for making my first beer trade great. On to the beer, zombie dust is a very fantastic brew, it has a nice citrus/hoppy nose and pours an orange color. the taste is immediately met by a slight sweet bitterness but then quickly followed by a powerful citrus taste and a smooth clean finish. when comparing between TGB Pseudosue i would say they are dead even in quality even though they are different from each other in their own way.

Fresh bottle. Pours clear orange with tall white head. Great aroma - floral, grapefruit. Taste is that distinct citrate hop (sweet, grassy) with some orange and lemon. A "juicy" beer for sure with a clean finish. Glad to finally try this one.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle - nice, fresh trade extra! Aroma has intense fruit notes with loads of orange rind, passionfruit, light mango with moderate straw and sweet malt. There is a pine quality as well. Not crazy dank, or oily, but the hop profile is very well mixed. Pours a deep orange with slightly off sticky white head. Very nice retention that leaves big webby lacing around the glass. Taste is up front citrus rind, with soft tropical notes of mango and passionfruit. After taste is mostly sweeter malt, light hop bitterness and almost no astringency. Mouthfeel is creamy with a somewhat light body and medium-high carbonation. Lingering hop resins with a nice citrus bite on the palate. Overall a super flavorful, and hoppy pale ale that is not bitter or too dry as some IPAs are. Good creamy mouth.

Two week young bottle pours a golden orangeish hazy hue with a modest amount of white suds. The around is a beautiful fresh orange tangerine citrus bouquet with a little grainy sweetness. The beer starts rich and grainy with a great balance and an orange marmalade jam thing. The initial pop of fresh hop flavors leads into an earthy citrus dried pine bitterness that lines for a while blending back into the sweeter marmalade and grain flavors. Bright refreshing balanced and refined, this is one great American pale ale.
