Space Dust IPA
Space Dust balances bitterness with a sweetness of hop flavors. Grapefruit, mango, and orange aromas with a medium body and a dry finish.
First brewed in 2012 as a one-off at our innovation brewery, Elysian Fields. Name originates from the brew day, where leftover Galaxy hop dust was spontaneously thrown into the brew, hence Space Dust. The beer grew in popularity within our pubs, was bottled in our Manic Series, and eventually became the #1 beer in our portfolio. Galaxy hops were eventually replaced by Amarillo.
Inspiration came from original Pop Rocks candy packaging, circa 1976. With permission from General Mills, we adapted the label to a hop cone chomping down on hop dust while in space.
