Review: Elysian Dank Dust

Products You May Like

Considered one of my favourite beers ever is Elysian Brewing’s Space Dust — and I’m clearly not alone on that opinion of the Seattle-based operation’s flagship beer. Properly, right here comes a Area Mud spinoff: Dank Mud. It makes use of the identical hops — Chinook, Citra, and Amarillo — has the identical abv, and the identical IBU stage. What’s completely different? The beer makes use of a mix of terpenes to approximate one thing you is likely to be extra accustomed to in gaseous type, not liquid. What’s that imply? Properly, right here goes.

The “dankness” of the beer isn’t any lie. Poured right into a goblet glass, it straight up reeks of weed. Intensely natural and earthy notes make you are feeling such as you walked right into a hash den. Thick with funky terpene character, the “glad flowers” character of the beer doesn’t fade shortly, although give this a half hour in a wide-mouth glass and also you get no less than some passing notes of orange and grapefruit, parts which might be no less than kissing-cousin elements of the a lot sweeter and livelier Area Mud. Chewy, toasty, just a little smoky, and enduringly dank on the end, it’s a beer that can wholly polarize any drinker, to make sure. At the very least 4/20 is just a few days away.

In contrast aspect by aspect to the exuberantly fruity, citrus-heavy Area Nightfall, it’s evening and day — or evening and dank, anyway. As curious as Dank Mud is, I gravitate to the unique any day. Dank Mud, to be frank, solely makes Area Mud style even higher.
