Pours a super hazy, orange juice orange-yellow body with a one finger white head that reduces to leave spotty lacing.
Aromas are resinous and citrusy with grapefruit and a light maltyness. On the tongue is citrus, dank raw hops, lightly sweet malt, grapefruit, finishing lightly bitter. Medium body with medium carbonation.
What’s interesting about this beer is that the appearance doesn’t match the taste. I was totally expecting a tropical fruit haze bomb, but that wasn’t the case.

This double IPA is near perfection for me. Look, smell, taste, body. Does all of the things that I want
Tropical with a bit of something dank and vegetal. Maybe some Citra or Mosaic hop.
Finishes dry wanting you to come back for more. Really doesn’t feel like a double - so crushable

First had in New Orleans, Mardi Gras 2018, poured from 12-oz. bottle into faceted hotel water glass, and have had on draft since. Not too pretty, and the burst of wonderful citrus and tropical aromas is gone pretty quickly after the pour, but this is a huge and satisfying DIPA.

A very good beer. However, I think it's a terrible value. I stopped into a local bar and grill (in Louisiana less than an hour from the Brewery) and a standard 16oz pint was $11 while Space Dust was on tap for $6. 4 pks are running $14-15. It just isn't worth the money.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a crowler on June 29, 2018. Look is hazy orange gold. Smell and taste is guava, tropical fruit, dank hops and sweet malt. Feel is full in body yet soft and fuzzy on the palate.

Bottle dated 06/06/18 from Modica Market Seaside FL

Delicious hazy DIPA; keeps a perfect balance between juicy guava, tropical fruits and dank chewy hop profile - offset by slight malty sweetness without distracting from the juice bomb that it is. Great beer that should be sought out.

An excellent ipa. Has a very soft mouthfeel and is brimming with flavor. The nose isn't as good as others, but in fairness to the beer it is almost a month from the bottling date.

“Manifested 06/04/18”, almost a month ago.

A: This got the full haze treatment: pours turbid, creamy orange like mango juice with a thin cap of white head. Head recedes quickly to a razor-sharp ring. Decent retention, minimal lacing.

S: Ripe mango juice, candied pineapple, a bit of herbs and pine,

T: Mango, a little guava and dankness, mild sweetness, and a slightly harsh bitterness that lingers through the finish.

M: Creamy, medium-full body with medium, slightly sharp carbonation.

O: Tasty, flavorful tropical IPA.
