L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an orange-yellow color and a cloudy consistency. Some sediment. Had a two inch, fluffy, white, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: Lots of hops, citrus, and tropical fruit in the aroma. Pretty good.

T: Smelled like it tasted: A decent aroma of hops, citrus (grapefruit), tropical fruit (mango), and a little malt. Definitely a hops-forward beer (almost too much so), but there's also a good mix of fruitiness and malt.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a very bitter, dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Spaceman is a solid IPA, in spite of its overabundance of hops. A solid effort.

not sufficiently weird enough to fit with all the other italian beer out there, which i dont know if thats a good thing or a bad thing. i assume they call this spaceman because of the yeast suspended in the orange honey colored beer. there a billion little particles like stars, orbiting the edges of my glass as i twirl it gently, far out man. the head is short and white, and the beer smells distinctly like peaches. i know there is no fruit in this, but it seems to have that peachy o ring candy flavor to it as well. its all from the hops, which is kind of cool. i expected it to have faded more over time, i have seen this on a shelf for ages, but finally tried it. ill bet it was even more dynamic when it was fresh. plenty of bitterness too though, and even with all the fruit it never appears sweet. surprisingly not very yeasty though for all of the sediment in this one, it doesnt have a lot of yeast flavor. clean finish, lush fuller medium body, and plenty of carbonation. excellent beer, but this is the first italian beer i have had that really fits in any style guideline.
