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.
