Huge hop aroma, citrus mango, grapefruit. Smells like an imperial ipa. Body is not as strong as the nose but instead very smooth and medium bodied. Not overly bitter. Very fresh tasting. Qualities of a big beer but in the frame of an a pale ale. Reminds me of two hearted in its big citrus flavors. Up there with the best.

Poured from bottle into glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice head that dissipates, leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, maybe pine. Hops are very present. Medium body that has a fantastic finish! One of my favorite IPAs that Ive had. Will travel many miles to get this.

Airlifter (134) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Pours a hazy light caramel with a finger of head that lasts a few minutes. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine and floral...interesting. Flavor is citrus and pine up front with some sweetness and an unusual spiciness. Reminiscent of red or yellow bell pepper, but without the vegetal note. I see that others mention peach...I can see that, but one that isnt quite ripe yet. Medium mouthfeel. A great beer that never gets old.

klm1 (1290) - Bled, SLOVENIA - JAN 30, 2017
Pours straw like pale golden color, haze/cloudy, with tan off-white /white head. Aroma: huge hop profile, with notes of citruses, pine, some tropical fruits, dunk, supported with crisp malt notes. Finish is dry, slightly bitter, body is moderate, texture smooth, juicy, carbonation is moderate.

Bottle. Best example of a pale ale showcasing citra hops. Probably the best beer from Three Floyds.

This beer taste like a buzz just waiting to happen! 12 ounce bottle. This has the scent of hops. Hazy medium straw in color. This taste wet and wild! The hops are not over bearing . Smooth, Unbelieveable beer.

Aroma is pungent/dank/spicy hops. The flavor is citrus, fruit, grapefruit, malts, very slight sugar sweetness and a mix bitter and slight tartness in the finish.

Two 12 oz. bottles from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons); bottles dated 12/1/16, so at least three weeks past its prime.

A brief forward on Zombie Dust: This is a beer that Ive sworn never to chase. Ive never stood in some stupid long line for it; Ive never went to a place where it was on tap just to try it... Ive always figured that the hype would wear down enough to grab some one day (Three Floyds has pretty regular distro in Louisville, after all) or that Id be fortunate enough to drop by one of my regular stops and buy it like a regular human being. Anyway, that finally happened, so here goes.

Aroma: Moderate, gently juicy citrus and lesser floral accents; malts are mostly off dry, basic cereals. Appearance: Slightly hazy copper with soft carbonation holding up a foamy bone head that settles into a cap. Flavor: Gently juicy citrus mingle with cereals and has just the right amount of sweetness to accentuate each other; expectedly more dry and floral towards the finish, which is lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Very well done, as expected. I like that Three Floyds isnt afraid to allow some malt sweetness in a tastefully balanced way, as the current trend is towards an almost parching dryness that can be off-putting when overdone.

So, is this beer worth the hype? At this point, there are so many other well-made Citra hopped pale ales that this might be a bit redundant in the current market. Still, this beer is to Citra what SNPA is to Cascade; or what Two Hearted Ale is to Centennial. For that, its place in beer history was long assured before I had poured my first glass.

A nice nice beer. Nice punchy aroma of citrus, with a touch of grass backed up by a sweetish malt aroma. Sweet candy malt with a dryer hoppy finish. Really showcases the hop without overwhelming it. The ultimate daily drinker.
