32 oz growler filled 7/16/13, sampled 7/21/13 into a port glass. Pear juice color with a half finger of white head that reduces to a sticky ring on the edges of the glass with nice lacing.
Deceptive appearance regarding the carbonation as it looks almost flat, but a swirl of the glass brings about some bubbles nicely.

The galaxy hops are in the spotlight, with a crisp and fruity/citrus aroma drawing you into the first sip.Nothing aggressive or overpowering in the nose, and the malt presence is nearly nonexistent. The dry hopping with galaxy really steps up the aroma.

Taste is also crisp and fruity,slightly tangy with a snappy dry finish. A really nice AIPA flavor that highlights the galaxy hop quite well with the citra hop playing second fiddle. A pleasant bitterness remains center palate before fading into a typical yeasty,crackery session ale fashion.

Mouthfeel leans toward the light side, maybe even a tad thin, and seems more typical of a session ale style not uncommon to 5%+- IPAs.

Sampling Dingo on the heels of enjoying Mad Fox's Orange Whip the night before made for
a tough act to follow. Dingo is a hop forward tropical tasting AIPA that is quite tasty, refreshing, and definitely recommended. If not for the relative thinness of the body & overall feel, it would be world class all the way.

From notes, growler shared by Thorpe429 a few weeks ago.

Pours a relatively clear, light golden yellow with a thin white head and moderate lacing. Tropical and juicy aroma dominated by Galaxy and to a lesser extent Citra hops, mild malt. Light body, soft carbonation, and pretty much all hops in the flavor. Weird beer, individually I enjoyed all the parts of this beer but the sum was a little too slight and thin.

Thorpe shared a portion of a growler of this with me and then it disappeared off the face of the earth, leaving me to wonder where did this IPA go. I will definitely try to get more of this if possible in the near future. Served in a tiny ticker snifter for ticking. As is how all beers from growlers should be served.

Beer is yellow / light amber and slightly hazy with a soft white head of small bubbles, some lacing, decent retention, moderate to mild carbonation (could be from the way it was stored).

Aroma is great, fruits, beautiful tropical fruits. I love galaxy hops.

Beer is medium to light in body, very light on malt, very good because of this. Such a great hop bouquet on the palate, strong sweet fruitiness, moderate bitterness on the not too dry finish. I'll have this again in a second.

On tap at Mad Fox last night. Served in a nonic pint glass.

Pours a very clear light golden color with a good white head and a nice bit of lacing on the way down. The nose has a really nice blend of Citra and Galaxy, focusing more on the latter. The Columbus don't come through quite as much, and may have just been bittering. Nice bit of tropical fruits combined with some nice citrus. Nothing overpowering, but quite pleasant. The flavor is about the same. Nothing really in the malt department, just a nice bit of hop flavor. Body is light and very crisp with a smooth bitterness through the finish. Quite good.
