Wow. What a great beer! As one who’s had his share of IPAs, I find it hard to be bowled over by yet one more IPA--but this is not just one more IPA! The first thing that hits you is that glorious nose of grapefruit and herbs, and the flavor and the mouthful live up to the promise in that first impression. Proof that an IPA doesn’t have to be over the top in ABV or IBU to be truly satisfying. I wish I lived in Iowa where I could have access to this regularly.

Bomber shared via the bottle while disc golfing. I wish I could’ve taken some time with this one. Fresh, dank hops, tropical, citrus fruits and medium bitterness. Easy drinking, fuck yeah IOWA.

Un corps parfait avec sa combinaison de céréales bien aérés en parfait équilibre entre juteux et résineux. Des fruits tropicaux très mûrs, du sapinage et des agrumes sucrés en quantité. Rien de surprenant.

Sweet Christ, thank you Santa!!! Big thanks to Clownoisseur for a huge 64oz growler... Gotta be one of the best pale ales I’ve ever had, even with reduced carbonation. Bright super citrus and grapefruit aromas with some resinous pine and cleanness. Flavor is bright and bitter, smooth and drinkable. Citrus and more grapefruit, more pine, earthy green. It’s easily one of the most enjoyable beers I’ve had in a looong time. Thanks again, Brandon.

On tap at TG taproom. Pours an orangish golden hue with a half 1/2 in white head. Good lacing. Aroma of orange and melon and homey. Very fruity. Taste is similar. Dank hops, orange, floral, melon and some honey sweetness from the malts to balance this out. This is the type of pale ale I am looking for! And only 30 min. from my hometown. Love it. My favorite pale ale! But haven't had Zombie Dust yet..

Daffodil and lilly bouquet with marshmallow peep accents, not strong. Cloudy amber, thick sticky yellow head. Lilly flavor, mild malt sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation, fabulously smooth. Tasty and satisfying, good balance, not much complexity.
