Pours a golden color with medium haze. Decent white head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is restrained. Slight citrus, some dankness, and strong malt.

Taste is much the same. The hop flavor is of the citrus variety with a decent amount of caramel malt. Taste is very old school.

Mouthfeel is fine. Probably medium with a nice bite of bitterness.

Overall, an ok beer. Probably would be a great beer 10 years ago but now is only average. Too many better IPA's to choose from.

This is a great IPA, well done Elysian.

12 oz bottle dated 08OCT18 poured into tulip glass

L: Beautiful, hazy, golden brew
S: Big hops, pine, tropical fruits
T: Very well balanced beer, hops nicely balanced by malt backbone, just bitter enough, and delicious. Nice apricot notes on the finish. Alcohol sneaks up on you
F: Very palatable, carbonation makes it feel light for the big beer it is
O:This one will sneak up on you, great for an one beer night

Looks slightly cloudy. Has a slight anise tone for which I'm not especially fond. Still, really good tasting IPA.

A great IPA with a now-unforgettable name, after the InSight Lander mission of 301 million miles from Earth to Mars just successfully landed on the Elysian plain, stirring up a lot of "Elysian Space Dust" on its descent through the Martian atmosphere down to the plain near the equator of The Red Planet. Had three bottles in a frosty mug to celebrate! The 6-packs go for $9.99 at my local Kroger, and I but at least one a week. The hops are Chinook and Citra--perfectly balanced to create a treat in every mug!

Very nice double IPA, well-deserving if its high reputation here. Pours a nice slightly hazy golden-amber with some nice head and spotty lingering lacing. Aromas are surprisingly subtle - citrus and piney hops, a little caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, lemon and some orange zest hops as well as more muted pine and floral hops. Also nice balance of bread, malt and a little nuttiness. Smooth mild mouthfeel, good carbonation and really surprisingly crisp and light for an imperial IPA.

This beer is a good beer, I was very underwhelmed by this one. Still a solid choice but nothing that is terribly unique or superb. It has the basic IPA qualities without coming back for much more.

Dated 9-10-18. Smells of skunked hops. Tastes like a corona gone bad, skunky. I was expecting much better considering the high rating. Very disappointing. I won't buy again.

I am fairly new at rating beer but do know what I like in an IPA. The look in my chilled Tervis glass is dark gold and a little hazy. The smell is a little flat for me but there is an elusive smell of citrus and pine which is very pleasing. Space Dust IPA has a lingering taste in the back of my throat.. I am surprised at the ABV of this beer as it is a little higher than I look for in my beers. I had seen this beer in several stores but had passed it by but on this trip, the selection was limited so in the cart it went. Now I am glad we did purchase it! I will buy again!
