On tap at the Village Idiot in Lexington.
Pour is clear, orange-ambe in color, and topped by a small head that hs decent retention and rather limited lacing.
Hoppy aroma aloows only a hint of malt to show through.
This is a weedy tasting IPA, with enough sweet hops to give a momentary sweet taste at the start and to limit the overall bitterness to a moderate level.

12 aug 2013, bottle. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is amazing: grapefruit rind, peaches, moderate alcohol. Med/thin body and mildly fizzy. Taste is nowhere near as nice as the nose. Mildly bitter field grass, faint grapefruit, some caramel malt. I'm kind if disappointed.

Wow this is really good. Worth the hype. Massive aromas of fresh pine needles, ripe tropical fruit, and a bit of dank. Dank grapefruit flavours. Very smooth and easy to drink. A benchmark for apa’s. cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a gorgeous golden color with a thin head. Aromas of spruce, grapefruit, pear and fresh-cut grass. This thing has a TON going on. Sweet flavors of pear are very well-balanced with a punch of resiny hops. This is a pretty incredible pale ale. jeremugohio (94) - springboro, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
One of my favorites. Citris aromas prepares you for a nice balance of citris and mango flavor. This beer is sooooo smooth!!

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 On draft at FFF brewpub poured into nonic pint. Coppery with a finger of white head. Smells like ripe mango and pine resin. Crisp carbonation. Outstanding! jbdpsu82 (95) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Snifter pour a nice amber color with a yellow tinged head that lingers. Amazing hoppy aroma, and a nice hoppy taste. Surprisingly smooth mouthfeel. Almost feels thick. Nice lacing down the glass. Lives up to hype pnadler (14) - Barrington, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2013
It's rare that a beer that is this hyped lives up to it, but ZD does! The floral aroma and hoppy bite are perfect.

Great colour and head. Citra hops give it a fantastic hoppy flowery aroma. Taste is very smooth with a medium bitter. icehawk (876) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Aroma: Fruity/citrusy hops
Appearance: Dark amber with slight white head
Taste: Fairly bitter to start, the citrus element is really subdued
Palate: Average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Medium body
Overall: Not bad, but no intense citrus/hops as I would have expected.
