Onto another Citra hop forward brew – Three Floyd’s world class pale ale, Zombie Dust. Ranked #4 overall on BeerAdvocate, this is one of the most sought after beers around and may very well be the best pale ale on the planet.
I tried/reviewed my first Zombie Dust over half a year ago when I was a n00b at reviewing beers, so it’s pretty simple and to the point. After trying ZD again, I do have to say it’s pretty darn accurate though. Here it is:
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Three Floyds tulip. Acquired in a trade from Surge1311. Thanks bud!
Appearance- Pours a slightly hazy honey colored body with a generous off-white head that has some nice thick lacing.
Smell- Very juicy and tropical. In particular, grapefruit and pineapple.
Taste- Mango, citrus, caramel malt, and a subtle bitter hoppyness on the finish. Good balance. Finishes smooth.
Moutfeel- Light, crisp, smooth, refreshing. Medium carbonation.
I can see why this brew ranks as the #1 APA. A very impressive Pale Ale.
