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.

Nice, hoppy, citrus hints. Hazy orange hue, great kick! Great citrus/earthy flavor, full bodied. Really enjoyed this beer! :)

Pours a slightly hazy orange gold. Aroma is a little light. Was expecting more from a west coast. Taste has the bright hop flavor i was expecting. Nice citrus notes - very clean. Feel is a little smooth with a moderate bitterness and a slight alcohol burn. Not a bad beer at all.

Very nice IPA... a bit light on viscosity for me (used to the Lagunita's brews as my go-to's), but great taste and smell. A very nice beer!

A decent beer but lacks some balance the aftertaste whilst not unpleasant comes on pretty strong. You are left feeling like you just tasted two different beers in quick succession.

Slightly hazy, golden colored beer. Nice hoppy, slightly citrusy odor. Starts quiet smooth/mellow, ends bitter and a little dryer.

Picked-up a six-pack at Kappy's in Norwell for about fourteen dollars. I had never seen or heard of this brewery before. Not a big fan, kind of a strange flavor, would not buy again.
