UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 5 hour old growler provided by Alex...Pours a brilliant clear orange, a light white head good retention...Citra aroma, what else do you expect. Not much different than any other citra beer. Nice, just doesn’t stand out from the others, but I like it...The taste is more citra hops, a little orange, and yeast, not bad but I’m not feeling this as much as the citra’s Its not meaty enough to stand up to the flavors, needs a strong backbone.
Zombie dust - bottle review... a few days old and this much better than the several times I’ve had it on draft... nose is bursting with fresh oranges and citra, supremely easy to drink, original reviews was 3.7 this is a solid 4 monkeychugg55 (1105) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2017 On cask @ 3F. Slightly hazy golden orange with a big frothy head that lasts quite a while. The aroma is awesome, tons of tropical fruit...tangerine, pineapple, pine needles, bloodorange, and sweet caramel malt. The flavor starts out sweet, with rich malt, then comes tropical fruit, and finally finishes with floral hops and loads of bitterness. Nice smooth palate with soft carbonation. One of their best beers imo and that’s saying alot. Bottle version isn’t as good. tmoreau (4596) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2011
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served with a cloudy, apricot nectar color, modest amount of silky, white head foam that was fairly lasting, and curtainy ribbons of lacing. The aroma was a pungent dose of hop as sharp, white grapefruit, some resin, and just a hint of sweetness layered in. The flavor was very hop dominant, with lingering bitterness, and a touch of caramel malt buried in there somewhere. Not bad, but a bit on the astringent side for my tastes. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Tasted on 3/16/11 on draft at Local Option. Pours clear golden straw with a thick white head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is very fresh pale malt with citrus hops, and hints of resin and white peppercorn. The flavor follows suit with the pale malt, and very fresh citrus and lightly resinous and herbal hops, and once again, just a hint of white peppercorn. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long bitter citrus hop and light white peppercorn finish. nbondi (203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Slightly cloudy orange-yellow with white head. Juicy mandarin orange nose with pine, grapefruit, brown sugar, and a bit of booze...which is surprising...Taste is more of same with surprising bubblegum, rock candy, and and caramel notes. Clean finish with lasting pleasant mandarin orange/hop bitterness. Good one, but not a standout.

Pint cask @ Three Floyds poured golden. Pine and grapefruit in the nose, very nice floral bouquet, with caramel and cereal notes. Flavor is a solid punch of hops up front, resinous pine taste. After the hops, caramel malts come through with cereal and sweet flavors. Nice hoppy aftertaste that dissipates quickly. Really enjoyed this brew. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Growler. Smells great, tastes great, drinks great. Fantastic use of citra hops. Can’t believe someone was trying to convince me it was something else >=p
Refreshing and clean but still has plenty of character. Love it.

FFF tap. Pour hazy yellow golden color with minimal head but great lacing. Aroma pineapple, citrus and tropical fruits and resiny hops. Taste guava, grass, malt , strange herb like taste that bent my facial expression. MF bitter not sweet not balanced with nice fizzy carb. Overall this is an odd duck brew I didn’t overly enjoy. jlanning215 (363) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2011 Aroma of a pine tree and coriander. Easy to drink full pf character. An awesome brew. A perfect balanced brew. Its overwhelming to drink this and the other brews here at the brewpub. The smell and taste of coriander are prominant. A great experience citrus. a cloudy yellow pour. Amazing
Had it on the engine pull today (march 7th 2011). So perfect with no carbonation....so good. jsquire (4578) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2011
On tap at Trion. Deep golden color with a sticky off white head. Sharp orange zest nose. Nice warm citrus flavors with orange juice, grapefruit rind, and some apricot. Nice malty sweetness balanced with copious hops. Alpha Kings little brother.
