‘Space Dust’ IPA by Elysian Brewing Co 

I think space dust is code for cocaine. I mean, just look at that hop! He’s absolutely railed. 


This better not have cocaine in it. That’d be a glorious waste of cocaine. You’re better off cutting it 50/50 with baking soda and water, then boiling off the water, boom, you’re a crack cooker Harry! 

I’m obsessed with obscure references that probably nobody gets.

The pour is a slightly opaque orange-amber with a finger of thick, stark white bubbles. Has some good, beefy spiderweb lacing. 

The smells are zesty and citrus. Grapefruit, stone fruits, gooey florals and a raw sugary backdrop. Smells somewhat familiar, not in a bad way. 

The tastes are really bitter overall. Getting mostly mixed citrus fruits and some dank herbals. It’s more of a floral and herbal bitter party with a slight grainy sweetness to it. A fair balance. 

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery. It doesn’t have the weight and fullness that I expect from an IPA. Flavors mostly sizzle around the back of the palate. Good carbonation. 

3/5 It’s a dank herbal bitter bomb that is fairly balanced, but not really that expressive and somewhat unremarkable. I’ve had better brews from them, this is a one-and-done for me. 

Crack, Harry. Y’know what? Nevermind.
