I have had this beer 3 times since it was released last week. Today is my birthday. I am feeling good. With that said I put this pale ale on par with - yes I am going to say it - Anber. It has a super hoppy appeal to it in a tropical sense. Big fresh mango, pineapple, citrus bursts, it has a creamy-like mouth feel the way a heady topper and and an Abner do. And like those two monsters this is quaffable as hell. So drinkable that it is scary. In fact, when this nectar of love hits my lips, it tastes like the first time I ever opened a heady back a few years ago: love. Now say what you will but if you are anywhere near Boston right now get to Trillium and try this. NOW. Edit: I know Abner is a DIPA. That's just how I feel about the beer.

The beer pours a fairly vigorous head that fluffy and bubbly. The head does not dissipate quickly and leaves a bit of lacing along the glass. The beer is a hazy pale orange with yellow that is hard to see through.
The beer smell contains a strong notes of the Galaxy hops with citrus notes and bits of passion fruit and orange smell.
The beer taste is similar to the smell with the Galaxy Hops making a strong appearance with its citrus and passion fruit taste as well as orange flavor. However, the malts do make a bready appearance in the aftertaste with the citrus and underneath the stronger hop notes.
The beer has biting carbonation and a medium body that falls in middle between light and heavy. The feel is smooth and clean with a slightly sticky and dry aftertaste.
Overall, a pretty good variation on the Fort Point Ale even though the galaxy hops are pretty strong.

Poured from 25 oz bottle into tulip glass
A - A hazy beechwood color with a thick and frothy white head.
S - Amazing. Key lime, orange zest, mango, and wildflower elegantly waft up from the glass.
T - An improvement on the already knockout smell. Tangerine, lime, passion fruit, and mango hop flavors immediately send the tongue into hop nirvana. A wildflower honey malt is fantastic at letting the hops do their thing. The finish is pleasantly bitter and dry. The lime then lingers on the tongue, temping you to another sip.
M - Light and bubbly, but smooth and silky at the same time.
O - This beer blew me away. Easily rivals many of the more famous Vermont pale ales and IPAs
