Beer is a nice medium yellow that is fairly attractive. Head is foamy and white.

The smell is wonderful. It has a nice and shape bitter hop presence. The hop notes are between a lemon and lime citrus, and a nice grassy pine note. There also seems to be a little sweet malt note buried underneath.

The taste is also wonderful with the same notes. Although, it is more lemon citrus and resin hop note.

Medium body with biting carbonation. A it on the syrupy side but not that it ruins the beer

Pretty good and hoppy. Go for it.

16 oz. can dated 5/31/18 and poured into Belgian ale glass.

L: Hazy pale orange-gold. Scant 2F fluffy white head with good retention, fluffy white lacing, and a cap and ring.

S: Citrus and flowery nose, some earthiness. Not aggressively hopped, which these days is a blessing from time to time.

T: Follows nose, with some good Vienna malt thrown in. Finish is slightly earthy, but pretty neutral.

F: Moderate body, light to moderate carbonation. Good construction and balance.

O: Solid, if unexceptional IPA - the sort one would drink regularly.

Pours a bright cleaner yellow with thin white lacy head. Nose of pine and pineapple with a hint of citrus, flavor the same. Thinner mouthfeel but good for a single.

Pours a pale golden orange with an inch of white head. Attractive lacing all the way down the glass. Smells initially of citrus--mostly oranges--but also some lemon and grapefruit, then layers of pineapple and super ripe melon. There's also a whole other component of spicy, savory herbal dankness with a bit of pine.

Taste is more the spicy notes. Super clean, slightly bitter finish. Almost pilsner-like in a kind of clean sharpness toward the finish, with some cracker-type malt flavors. A lingering, grapefruit pith/pine resin bitterness accumulates through the glass.

Feel is a light-ish medium, bordering on watery but not quite. A good slightly prickly carbonation props it up nicely.

Another tasty IPA from Ocelot.

Bought directly from the brewery. Canned ~9 days before this review. The smell can't be beat - the taste can be. The beer has a surprisingly bitter aftertaste that doesn't match the malty, sweet, aroma. Space Cadet is a premo beer at a premo price. Overall, this is an excellent IPA. Ocelot continues to impress.
