Little smell, hint if citrus And grapefruit; very lacy white head, devent retention. Hazy golden color. Clean on palate. Hop dryness and bitterness in finish excellent. Malt is on lighter side. Hops shine with some esters. Piney, slightly skunky, great flavor. Great representation of IPA style.

Light copper in color. Nice hoppy nose and hoppy flavor profile. An above average IPA.

Don't believe the hype. The hops were muddled and it wasn't anything more than an average IPA

Great color, very smooth. Aftertaste is just what I like. A great beer.

I am a recent Hoosier transplant to central Maryland (see username). Like any proud transplant, I compare all new things to the best in the midwest. When talking about beer that means all breweries get compared to Three Floyds, Bells, Founders, and Brugge and all beers to their beers. Unfortunately, it typically isn't worth the effort to compare IPAs and APAs to Three Floyd's Zombie Dust because it is simply too good. That said, Space Dust shares more in common with Zombie Dust than half of its name. Space Dust sported that familiar fresh, citrusy aroma and bitter hoppiness that I love in Zombie Dust. I'd say the biggest difference between the two beers is that Space Dust is actually available for purchase!! (Zombie Dust is simply too hard to find.)

Paid $3.50 for this bottle at the House of 1,000 beers.

A - Light copper yellow hazy but no sediment. Head is just a 1/4 inch that fades to a good lace ring. Some sticky head on the glass.
S - Really good aroma very pungent of floral and citrus hops and sweet malt base.
T - Smooth hop taste not acidic or strong but kind of watery so I assume my bottle may be over a few months old.
M - As said it's a bit light but easy enough to sip.

Overall it's a good IPA balanced hop bitterness with a good malt base. I can see the comparison to heady topper since I only found one bottle of this on the shelf.
