Zombie Dust Clone Brew - Update

Here's an update on our 5 gallon clone batch of 3 Floyds Zombie Dust IPA:

Well, this batch flew through primary fermentation in 5 days! We transferred the beer to secondary and added our dry hop charge of 3oz last night. The sample tasted delicious, but once this baby has about 5 more days of time to get to know the dry hops better, this beer should knock your socks off with citrus flavor!

OG: 1.044, FG: 1.010, ABV: ~4.5%

Pretty please with Citra on top

About 5.25 gallons of the good stuff
Brulosophy, another beer journalist that we follow, suggested that a shorter dry hop period might yield more favorable results than extended dry hop lengths. Since this is our first batch of this recipe, we'll stick to the prescribed 5 days this time around and play with the dry hop length next time. But hey, anything to shorten the time from grain to glass is just fine in my book!
