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.

22oz bottle purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar – Escondido, CA
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.

Pours clear golden with a pillow-y white head that leaves behind real good lacing throughout. Aromas are of resin, dank hop notes, pineapple, herbaceous, tropical fruit, medium esters, light tangy notes, and sweet malts are detected. The flavor begins with a light bitterness then recedes to citrus, mild grain, dank, and a good chunk of tropical fruit. The beer finishes sweet and bitter with lasting citrus rind and a grapefruit bite. Lively carbonation throughout. Unlike some other IPAs, this is very light bodied and fairly quffable for the style.

Clean, pure grapefruit flavor. The standard orangey amber in the Mort Subite globe. Some coarse head, but not long lasting, though it renews with a couple of swirls. Big spritz in the mouth. The aroma is quite nice-- flowers and citrus.

Flavor is grapefruit marmalade. Sweet and bitter, sharp and tangy. A serious bitter edge, and quite hot and acidic. The malt seems to be so pale as to contribute little if any flavor. I don't think I've tasted a beer that is more clearly grapefruit scented and flavored. Supposed to be Australian Galaxy hops. Far out!

A really hoppy but pleasant brew. Your tongue will tingle, but the aromas will make you swoon. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
