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.

Had high hopes, but nothing stood out for me, aroma was weak, taste a bit sweet and not a beer I'd repeat. Glad I bought a single.

First try was on tap at a local establishment which I liked. So I purchased a 6 of 12 oz bottles at my local on 7/28. Date on the bottom of the carry pack was 4/6/18 so it had been sitting. Poured a great head but no pungent hop smell? I expected the bitterness to the mouthful, laced the glass well but the after taste didn't cut it for me. Maybe the "brewed on date"was blocking my receptors. BUT i won't pour it out. I now have compulsive freshness disorder.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Decent orange color. Huge, foamy white head.

Smell: Strong pine and citrus from the hops. A bit of spiciness.

Taste: Very bitter, almost soapy. Not much else detectable past the hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, virtually no noticeable carbonation.

Overall: Not great. A typical example of an IPA that emphasizes massive hop flavor over all else, ruining any effort at complexity.
