Space Camper Cosmic IPASpace Camper Cosmic IPA
Notes: Space Camper Cosmic IPA is an exhilarating initiation into a mind-bending alternate universe of India Pale Ales. Our brewers employ massive hop additions at the end of the boil, and during fermentation, to minimize upfront bitterness and create a juicy IPA bursting with tropical fruit flavors and aromas of nectar and citrus.

Solid IPA if you don't want something too bitter or piney. Balanced, fruity and tropical. Hop forward flavor with the citrus on the backend. Not over the top for an IPA but solid.

Had to get this one just for the name, but my odds were good with boulevard.

Definitely tropical, floral, and fruity to the max. Super easy to drink, with minimal bitterness.

I would agree with other reviewers that this is an IPA for people who think they don't like IPAs.

Having this a little under 2 months before the best buy date so I know it isn't the freshest. Not bad but I mostly think it tastes like Special K cereal flakes. Gonna have to try again later, it is more citrus-forward if I drink it fast lol

There's a strong fruitiness to this IPA in scent and taste. It doesn't have the hoppy bitterness of several other IPAs, at least not to an extreme degree. Because of its relative lack of bitterness, I know several who don't like IPAs that like this beer, and even a few people that don't like beer that like this one. Perfect for summer weather with the fruitiness.

A pleasant looking if somewhat hazy beer. Light yellow/copper appearance. A clean citrus finish but poor mouth feel and limited head retention. The carbonation is very "pop-like". Either the yeast or hops bill leave a pronounced metal/alcohol taste behind...almost a lingering silver tequila followed by a lime wedge kind of taste imo. The beer tastes very "green" and rushed to production. Strong pineapple notes. Not a fan.

From a can packaged 2/18/21
Appearance - Straw yellow, medium haze, little crop of white foam, lacing sticks around the glass.
Aroma - High levels of pineapple among other tropical fruitiness. Lower levels of citrus character. Not much malt character, a hint of wheat.
Flavor - Strong pineapple and grapefruit citrus. Wheat malt adds a bit of crisp flavor to the malt profile but this is a hop forward, juicy fruit flavored ale. Finish has a complimentary bitterness that is slightly drying. Clean aftertaste.
Feel - Medium low body to the beer. Carbonation is normal. A little light in body.
Overall - Not as soft and dextrin rich as a juicy hazy IPA, not as bitter and dry as a west Coast IPA. A little light in body for the IPA moniker, but a good easy drinking beer with interesting hop character.

It has been a long time since I have had an IPA this good, so hoppy of course, but with balance and even finese.

The mouthfeel stands out --- super luciously smooth with a lingering presence of hop oils. Slightly sweet at first but finishing very dry, even appropriately astringent. I'm tasting pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, ginger, black pepper, spruce and juniper berries. Maybe even some cannabis-like terpenes.

This beer is seriously good.

Purchased at Aldi's in Oklahoma, in a six pack of 12 oz. cans.

Yep, it's another IPA. This one is pretty decent, but nothing different from any of the million other IPAs out there. ABV is about right, and it's not too hoppy or bitter, so it's drinkable in my book. Had it as part of a mix pack so at least I got to try it, but wouldn't go out of my way to get it. It's just fine.

Poured from the can to a tulip glass, a short 1F off white head forms that settles quickly with minimal lace. Color of beer is yellow with a reddish amber tinge and about 90% opaque.

On the nose I get mango, pineapple, and orange notes along with a hint of grapefruit hops and salty air. There is a pretty big hit of onion or other Sulphur hop note as the beer warms up a bit, but not too offputting, just enought to detract.

Taste follows the nose with a salty, mineral, and the fruits above. The nose hinted at a more juicy sweet take than on the palate which is creamy salted fruit and drier than slippery juice. Hops are not bitter and quite restrained with less grapefruit than I anticipated.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slick and rounded art first then ending with light dryness that is not too astringent. Carbonation is medium to light and with rather fine bubbles. More fruit comes in on the end with some slickness as it warms a bit. Not cloying and not too astringent makes me a happy space camper.

This is a nice IPA in line with Avery's Hazyish and Epic's Escape to CO. It is well balanced and a bit restrained with a tiny bit of pith bitterness. A nice middle of the road slightly juicy IPA that is easy to drink.

Great grapefruit taste like an IPA should be. Aroma spot on as well. This is how I brew IPAs.

Decent middle of the road IPA, hits all the resiquite notes; citrus-hoppy w/ a slight pine-resin aftertaste. Sessionable at 5.9% abv...or a perfect spacer if going down the D/IIPA rabbit hole.

12oz can into a pint glass. Canned 10/01/20, so 7 weeks old.

Looks very good in the glass. Hazy dull yellow body. Nice loose bubbly bright white head which persists in good form throughout leaving very nice lacing.

Kind of a sweet fruity aroma on the nose.

On tasting, seems lighter than the listed abv. Fruity, refreshing, lightly bitter towards the end. Good beer.

Mouth just about medium, finish a sweet fruity wash with a bitter finish.

Overall, this one went down extremely well (and quickly). Nice flavors, quite fruity, and a bitter finish. Could hammer down a six pack on a warm day. Good one.

Pretty decent IPA .. looks great with a big frothy head ... Nice nose ... Feels a bit thin to me, but drinks easy and tastes good ... We'll call this slightly above average for the style.
