Notes / Commercial Description:
Space Dust :: A Totally Nebular IPA. Great Western premium two-row, combined with c-15 and Dextri-Pils, give this beer a bright and galactic Milky Way hue. The hopping is pure starglow energy, with Chinook to bitter and late and dry additions of Citra and Amarillo. Space Dust is out of this world, with 62 IBU.

4/5  rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

look - somewhat hazy light burnt orange with a very soapy cream colored head that retains well and leaves wicked blankets of lacing.

aroma - dank, I guess. mostly musty and dank hops.

taste - woody and piny with musty bitterness, some citrus cuts through eventually.

mouthfeel - medium to heavy, dry.

overall - the aftertaste is that of having drank a wool sweater.

Nice hoppy aroma spills out of this clear golden-amber imperial. Medium-heavy bodied and rich, the citrus hoppy flavors make this imperial easy to drink and enjoyable. No overpowering pithy flavors that veil the hops. Enjoyed it.

I like the look of this one. Hazy orange w decent lacing. The alcohol is hidden well with a nice bitter finish. I will say this is not for the casual ipa fan

Very disappointed in this beer. It pours a slightly hazy golden with a foamy head that slowly dissipates, good lacing. Smell is muted and of grapefruit, pine, some overripe banana and other sweet overripe fruits. Taste is very hop forward and bitter. The bitterness is flat and straightforward, not bright, and I suppose dominated by the Chinook hops. There is some grapefruit peel and pine resin as well as tangerine and papaya and overripe or even rotten banana along with overtones of armpit and soap. There was something nauseating here. Body feels squarely medium owing to some creaminess in the carbonation, but the malt is disproportionately thin. At least the alcohol is nicely undetectable.
Is this supposed to be craft?
