Pours an orange color, cloudy and with a dark melon like hue from deep within it. Fat creamy head of khaki foam that left plenty of clinging lace. Nose is tropical fruit and citrus. Light fresh orange on passion fruit. No pine in the nose until it warmed a bit then it was earthy pine needles. A beautiful scent of brown sugar for malt. Taste is outrageously good. The fruits are juicy and a bit tart too so they fully engage the palate. The earthy pine is light and the the malt becomes a soft light caramel. The body approaches medium but stays light. There's a bit of sticky resin at the back to coat the throat and leaves a bitter that starts soft and then increases in intensity after the swallow. Lingering after tatse of caramel, sweet fruit and pine needles. Brilliant beer.
I loved this beer. This had a sensual caramel that stayed generally light but was like a ribbon underneath this beer. The fruit was bountiful and the bitter started soft and then became a bit stronger as it lingered.

Pours a lovely orange color. A tad bit hazy with thin off white head and butt tons of lacing in stripes around the glass.
Heavy aromas of pine and bitter citrus peel. Grapefruit, mandarin and lime zest abound. Some sweetness underlying but not discernible.
Flavor goes right along with aromas. Zesty pine needles, earth leaves, big lime and grapefruit bitterness everywhere. Great sticky dankness in the finish, lovely dank after taste.
Heavier side of medium bodied. Sticky marijuana like finish that sits on the tongue. Very drinkable.
Awesome stuff, enough said

I absolutely love Elysian Spacedust but this savant is not doing it for me. Smells of strong banana esters. Its bitter, the hops are not aromatic enough, and its doesn't even seem balanced with the malt. I tried eating to cleanse my palate, didn't help. Not an enjoyable beer for me.

My first bomber as a beer fan! This was one of my Superb Owl beesr from last night. Taken from a thread here, I wanted at least one beer from Seattle and Denver for the big game, and this was all my bottle shop had for Seattle that I could find (I used a Great Divide Nomad for Denver, figured the camel was a close approximation of a horse). Delicious IPA, balanced and not too much alcohol so I was able to drink up and still watch the game!
Sadly, the competition between the beers was a lot closer than between the real life teams they were standing in for.
