Appearance

The IPA pours a marigold hue whose clarity shows a light haze. The ale is topped by a thick stack of rocky white foam that shows modest retention. Gobs of lace cling to the sides of the glass.

Aroma

The aroma wafts a scent of pine and ripe tropical fruit.

Flavor

A light citrus mixes with toasted bread that rises to a sharp bite of grapefruit and lemon. A bite of herb and resin is thrown in for good measure. The bitterness lingers through the finish and is balanced slightly by an undercurrent of tropical fruit.

Mouthfeel

Its feel has a light grain with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes slightly dry and astringent.

Overall

Space Dust is a hop bomb that blasts the senses with citrus, pine, and resin. Its hoppiness is aggressive but there’s enough malt to keep the palate agreeable. A relatively high ABV is managed well and in spite of its astringency, is quite easy to drink.
