Space sports a copper body with gleaming gold highlights whenever any light is in the vicinity. A touch of haze runs throughout. A dirty white head rises to a finger then fades to a short cap. As it recedes chunk lacing decorates the glass and will be tough to wash off.

Oranges dressed up in every which way. Marmalade, candied peel, raw fresh. Brown sugar broiled grapefruit makes an appearance but the orange rules the roost. Pine sappy and mildly herbal. A soft toast and caramel maltiness make up the canvas. Smells juicy!

Again, the flavor profile just bursts with big, bold orange. It's sweet and bitter. Pine and grapefruit are mere support. Buttered white toast and a dash of caramel make up the base. I don't think I've had a beer in the past that packs this much orange.

The body has moderate weight but the carbonation is active and makes for a quick flow. A semi dry finish accentuates a bitterness that grows to no larger than medium. There's not a whisper of alcohol and this beer is dangerously easy to put away.

Space has been a favorite of mine since the tribute, Daly Double. A great, slammable, orange-in-your-face IPA. I appreciate this beer being on tap fairly often these days.

Pours deep clear amber in color with some slight red hues. Head is about 1 finger and has nice retention.

Smell is great, lots of citrus hops forward. Grapefruit is the main aroma that dominates this beer but there are also some hints of pine and herbal hops. There is a nice grainy mildly sweet smelling malt aromas that helps balance the beer.

Taste is also great. More pine comes out in the taste then in the nose however there is also a nice mildly sweet citrus and herbal hop presence. Bitterness is mild and balanced nicely with a nice grainy body.

Mouthfeel is good lots of hoppy oils and a medium to light body. Moderate carbonation keeps this soft and very drinkable.

Overall this is a good ipa. Love the grapefruit aromas and it's well balanced grainy malt body.

on tap @ the brewery

served in that dope half acre stemware - bright coppery orange body - this is a great IPA - nice waves of tropical fruit, sugary goodness, pine needles, sweet sappy goodness. Really nice stuff - apparently my palate was just blown when i tried this at GABF, because I really liked this at the brewery.
