A - hazy golden ale with a nice fresh white head that laces beautifully on the glass

S - The smell is absolutely perfect. Just absolutely perfect. Juicy, tropical, citrusy, hop ASSAULT!!! Strong, Strong perfect on the nose. I didn't sip for 5 minutes that's how much I enjoyed the nose.

T - Follows the nose precisely. Perfect juicy hop, juicy hop, juicy hop, wave after wave of the same perfection.

M - medium carbonation and again....follows everything above. Leaded version of a beverage I'd like to have first thing in the morning if life would allow. Juice, creamy fresh medium carbonation, smooth, sweet, light dank, perfect.

O - Blown away. Perfect. Death bed or stuck on an abandoned island for life pick one beer kind of ale. Top 5 without a doubt as I may be reviewing after a 750ml bottle but it's a coin toss between this and maybe one or two other beers that I've had the pleasure to enjoy for best beer I've ever had. Not best pale ale...best beer including the IPA, DIPA, Stout, Imperial Stout category. Hill Farmstead's Edward has been impossible to dethrone as the best Pale Ale I've had. Edward is perfect....but a perfect #2.

Drank from a 25.4 fl oz (750 ml) bottle acquired in an in-person trade with muzzy
080214
Served in a pint glass

Cloudy, dull straw yellow appearance. The liquid was topped by a near three-finger tall, super tight and creamy, eggshell colored crown. The head had amazing lasting strength and slowly dropped to a frothy cap. Thick patches of lacing coated the glass from top to bottom.

The aroma was absolutely amazing. It was pure tropical fruit goodness in a glass. Guava notes dominated. Loads of passionfruit. Touch of mango. Juicy Fruit gum came to mind. All in all, the nose was very similar to that of the original Fort Point Pale Ale, but even punchier and fruitier.

Like the aroma, the flavor profile was loaded with tropical fruit notes. Tons of mango, papaya and guava. Lots of peach and apricot as well. Candied orange peel was also noticeable. Amazingly juicy. A touch of bitter orange rind and lemon peel came through on the finish, lending the beer a perfect balance. With time, the peach and apricot notes became much stronger.

The mouthfeel was flawless. Ultra smooth and plush. A super fine, moderate effervescence gave the liquid a slick creaminess. Rather full bodied for the style.

I have waxed poetic about nearly every hoppy beer that Trillium Brewing has released thus far, but this beer definitely takes the prize for being their best. The amount of rich fruitiness and overall hop complexity in this pale ale is simply mesmerizing. I look forward to seeing what amazing creations these guys are going to put out next.

Trillium's hoppy beers are just flat out awesome. The original Fort Point Pale brewed with Columbus and Citra is already gushing with hop aroma and flavor, but the galaxy dry hop really knocks it out of the park. I honestly don't see how this beer could possibly be improved other than perhaps experimenting with different dry hops - a truly perfect offering.

This is just plain outstanding! Aroma is like opening a packet of hops, dry but not overwhelmingly and restrained bitterness! Top notch!
