Summer is the time when I love to try new beers. Pintville never fails me with their selection and diversity. I got to try this week a pint of Elysian Brewing Company Space Dust IPA.
As soon as the pint is poured the wonderful aroma of pineapple and even a little lemon hits your nose. Once you have your first sip Space Dust will take you to outer space. The flavor profile of that first sip has a little pine, citrus and then the beer finishes very clean. That is what I look for in a delicious well rounded IPA, fruit forward and then let the hops play with your taste buds as the sip ends. The flavor notes hide the fact that this beer is 8.2% ABV. To me, this is a classic West Coast IPA. I look forward to seeing if Pintville will have more beers from the brewery.
