Saeglopur's rating

Saeglopur (1856) - Vienna Woods, - APR 8, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2014 Bottle from Mikkeller Webshop.
Amber, moderate hazy body, with a big, creamy, lacing, white head.
Wonderful aroma of citrus, passion fruit, peach, candy, some pine.
The taste...What a taste!! Lemon peel, peach, passion fruit, pine, some biscuit, some candy sweetness, super crisp, super fresh, perfect!
Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes smooth, medium bitter, dry, with citrus and slight pine notes.

Amazing stuff! Spotlessly clean, fresh like spring and with an almost unbelievable balance of aroma and drinkability, complexity and crispness! The ratings are just true, there is no better APA at all and Im not even sure if there is an IPA that keeps up with this for me. The first beer that I gave a 10 for taste, citra hop orgasm!!

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.

ContemplateBeer (2042) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 15, 2016
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.

Anova167 (350) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - DEC 8, 2016
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.

MayumiH (1117) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle at Craftheads in Tokyo. Golden hazy pour. Nice citrus up front, and a long lingering caramel and piney hop finish. Perfect balance of juiciness and hop bitterness. Finally drinking Zombie Dust was just surreal. Amazing beer :D

JPDIPSO (5868) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Light amber color with a diminishing, initially billowy, light beige head. Nice pale and toasted malt scents mingle with a bit of pine and citrus. Nice balanced aroma. Light sweet start with pine and light caramel nuances. Fairly soft feel. A hop forward pale, that still has some malt presence. I like this like I like Twinkies. ;) 7/11

baraciisch (3030) - California, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Copper orange in color... Aroma of citrus hops, tangerines... Flavor is light and crisp, extremely well balanced... Fairly dry, but not overly so... Lots of citrusy notes... Really well executed ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
