Poured an amber brown with two fingers of head that did not have very good retention. The aroma is of citrus and hops. The taste begins with sweet malts and then transitions into a bitter grapefruit hop flavor. This is a very well balanced beer.

Golden orange with a two finger head. Aroma of sweet onion and malt. More of a sweet malty taste than hoppy. Medium mouthfeel. Very good, but I like Zombie Dust more than this one. I think most others do as well. Kind of reminds me of a more muted Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Floyds are making life a lot more pleasant for all of us. This is almost like grapefruit juice.

WOW!!!!!! This is what an ale should taste like!!! Although I dont agree with the commercial description, I think this is alot more of a beer leaning to the hop and not that of of a balanced beer, but Im not complaining! This beer will treat you well....very well.

The citrus is just a little too strong on what would otherwise be an excellent beer. The overall impression and aftertaste is great, but it stings the tongue just a little. Still, the strong hops really give it good flavor.
