I had this on tap at Federal Taphouse.

a murky looking hazed IPA with sunny shade and thick cream. The smell is loaded with Galaxy hops, lots of tropical fruit and passionfruit scents in particular. The feel is very good bitter but not wrecking with one glass.

The taste has lots of Galaxy, actually it tastes like that was all that was used, very tropical and moderately bitter -extremely drinkable for an 8% IPA

Appearance: Arrives a hazy amber with a decent cap; some lacing is left behind

Smell: Very resinous and pithy aromatics

Taste: The beer starts out resinous and pithy and gets more bitter as the liquid hits all the tastebuds; a slight bit of residual sweetness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Quite a nice DIPA though I didn't get the fruit flavors that other reviewers tasted; definitely worth a try

A - Golden body, slightly hazed, white head has some retention and little lace.

S - A little weak for the style. Some tropical fruits and caramel sweetness with a touch of pine.

T - Green, herbal, leafy, pine hops with a bready, caramel malt backdrop providing a nice balance. Light on tropical fruit notes, but has a nice bouquet while maintaining a relatively low bitterness level.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Finishes clean and dry with little lingering bitterness. Not a palate ripper by any means.
