bright orange-y yellow, hazy; nice little white foam cap on top. floral, tropical fruit, tangy aromas. nice flavor, minimal bitterness, some orange and tangerine. pineapple? I think i'm really becoming a fan of the IPAs and this one is really nice. silky white lace slowly recedes down the side. pine-y and sweet! beautiful to look at and smell.

Notes from 01/03/14 – FW Snifter glass
A: A thin and course bone white top caps a soft golden amber brew with some mild hop haze across the body. Light retention noted as it dispels out to a thin film leaving back some sticky dots and ribbons of lace decorating the glass after each sip.
S: Tropical aromatics abound with passion fruit, guava, grapefruit, and gooseberry. Soft undercurrents of grassy herbs mixed in with some faint sugary pale malts detected as well. Really great nose chalked full of tropical fruits and Galaxy hop goodness.
T: High hop bitter punch brings a tropical medley of passion fruit, guava berry, melon, grapefruit, and gooseberry. Add in some dragon fruit for good measure with a few botanic florals. There is a very subtle dry malt cracker base with some restrained caramel sweetness. Alcohol is subdued and really well disguised in the flavor. Finishes crisp and dry with slight resinous linger carrying on that bitterness. Very tasty with loads of tropical hops.
M: Moderate to lighter body. Nice creamy texture with some carbonation spritz. Moderate to upper level of perceived bitterness. Crisp and dry resinous finish.
D: Far out IPA is affirmation that I love dem tropical Galaxy hops. Really well done in the west coast style. Sticky and resinous with a very reserved dry malt presence. Recommended and will be going for more of this one.
