4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour is a gorgeous clear golden orange, with a fluffy white head that leaves a ton of lacing. Lots of bright fruity notes on the nose, very citrusy, some white grape, nice hoppy smell and thereís a hint of a grassy floral character there. Wow, amazing taste. More floral hops than I would have expected, but still its very much a citrus dominated taste with lots of orange and mango, slightly sweet with a dry finish, maybe some pineapple on the finish too. Easily the best and most well balanced pale ale Iíve had.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottling information is unreadable.
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber-orange body with a frothy off-white head.
Aroma: Big citrus aroma, some floral and grapefruit with big orange and hints of mango. A bit too focused on the citrus, with a slight harshness to it. Almost great, but maybe Iím discovering I donít love this hop as much as I thought I did. My homebrew pale ale isnít far off from this in the aroma.
Taste: This is balanced very nicely until the finish where the bitterness is a bit out of balance. Big orange throughout with lime and hints of floral mango and grapefruit. Papaya sits on the palate after the sip.
Palate: Soft bodied with mild carbonation.
Overall: Boy for all the hype this receives Iím wondering why people donít just homebrew. You could brew a similar beer to this for $40 or so whenever you want it. I have a homebrew that I thought I fucked up, an all Citra pale ale, and nope it just isnít a hop profile I love like I thought I did. This isnít bad by any means but hell itís not even close to being hard to replicate this on any level and the hop profile is definitely something you better enjoy if itís all youíre using.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a tight 1 finger off white head and nice lacing. The aroma is citrus hops with a touch of bready malt in the background. The taste adds sweet bitter notes and a little vanilla. The palate is smooth and drinkable considering the hop bitterness with just the right amount of resin. Excellent pale ale. I'm glad I got to try this.

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 hasnít 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.
