Mindless amounts of hops set the stage for this brew apocalypse of an ale. Citra's unrelenting flavors and aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and passionfruit yearn for grains, resulting in a well balanced Pale Ale. One sip of this beer will have you craving more, and before you know it the infectious notes of mango, papaya, citrus, fresh crusty bread and mild caramel sweetness will overcome your senses. Pouring with a fiercely deep-golden hue and a persistent, brilliant white head, Zombie Dirt is sure to exert mind-controlling beer sorcery over you.

Good clean tasting beer
The amount of hops in this recipe (10 oz in a 5-gallon kit) made me a bit nervous since I’m not partial to the pine flavor that’s prevalent in IPA’s. Yes, I realize that this is supposed to be a Pale Ale, but Pale Ale’s don’t usually have this volumn of hops.
The piney-ness, however, isn’t overwhelming. It’s actually a pleasant part of a complex overall flavor profile. The Citra hops also add a citrus component for a refreshing finish.
An amusing aspect to this seemingly simple beer is that the appearance is, in keeping with a post-zombie apocalypse theme, like dirty (or dusty) beer in the glass.
This one’s a keeper for me that I’m sure I will want to brew again.
Great for the grapefruit lover, add a slice of orange and u have a fantastic anytime beverage !! Absolutely love it !!
