Notes / Commercial Description:
Oh, what Dusty once was. He was vibrant! He was juicy! He was rough around the edges, with a little bite, and yet still balanced and approachable. Everybody loved him, and even more do today. Sure, he still looks the same - but his old friends know that he's changed. He's bigger now, a little less interesting - dull and dumbed down. He says money and opportunity haven't changed him....Ok. But to those who remember what once was, this Lust's for you. Chinook, Galaxy, Amarillo and Citra. 7.6% ABV, 60 IBUS, and brewed in Seattle by an adamantly small, forever independent brewery that former Elysian employees work at.

On-tap at the source itself, the name Cosmic Lust reminded me of a knock-off of Space Dust. Lo and behold, several Cloudburst employees used to work at Elysian, the maker of Space Dust. So, will the real space-themed beer please stand up?

Washed out orange colored with a little haze, a modest head and retention stays around the glass. It smells juicy, just like a Space Dust. I smell cantaloupe, juicy passionfruit, orange, and dry spiciness. It tastes a lot like a fruit juice in a glass. Forget Juice It Up!, have a Cosmic Lust instead! It's filled with tropical fruits. Pineapple, orange, passionfruit, cantaloupe, and a little bitterness at the end to taste. It's medium bodied and easy in the mouth, and at the end of the glass, I would call this a Space Dust that has been sanded down. In other words, an outstanding IPA!
