#33 3 Floyds Zombie Dust

Aw, yissss. Motha. Fuckin. Zombie Dust.

One of my friends out in Far Away Land gave me a heads up that he was going to pick up a couple of few cases of beer, and was willing to send me a couple bottles. In a few days the beer fairy arrived, and I got stupid excited. My bottles of Three Floyds have arrived.

I couldn't write the review and not mention the label art, it is a goddamned piece of work. Can we just take a moment to acknowledge this? Just for a brief moment?




LOOK AT IT IN ALL ITS DRAMATIC SUNLIGHT
ZOMBIE KING GOODNESS!
Zombie Dust. Oh, you. You poured a nice, translucent orange. With a huge fluffy head, I was captivated by your swirls of what I assume to be the actual zombie dust, in my glass. Are you bottle conditioned? Am I going to turn into a zombie now? You carry a light scent about you. Sweet and floral. way better than the expected "rotting flesh and putridness." You kind of remind me of a mimosa. Citrus, but not a very strong presence of hops. It's there, but masked by all the florally goodness.

At this point I need to interfere. If you didn't know, I write my reviews while I drink, which is usually days or weeks before I actually post the review. Reading my notes is cracking me up. I may have been (probably was) drunk.

Something about the taste just makes my brain scream "ORANGE SODA?!" Because you know who loves orange soda?! No, it's not Kel. It's Hipster Brewfus. And I don't even really like orange soda, but this beer is fucking good. Up front, the taste matches the nose, light, sweet, and loaded with juicy, juicy citrus. Towards the back though, the hops starts to tingle and after you swallow you can exhale all the strong hops that snuck up on you, LIKE A FRIGGIN' HOPS DRAGON!!

You can see the swirls of evil in the sunlight!

If this beer was readily available to me, it would easily be a mainstay for me when I'm craving the hippity hops. And since it's not, I want to grab whatever object is nearest me, and throw it across the room. Seriously, this beer is deserving of all the accolades it gets. its an extremely well made American Pale Ale. IPA? APA? WTF? Does it even matter anymore? This onez for da hop headz.

I was lucky enough to get a bottle of this, along with a bottle of Alpha King, too. And I have a poorly worded review of that coming soon.

Seriously, they need to distribute over here. Mostly to me though.

Strap on your ear goggles, turn up some metal, and head on over to their corners of the internet and check them out!
