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.

A-Pours a cloudy, bright yellow color. Head is thin but somewhat fluffy. Lacing dots left behind.

S-Well, Fort Point is one of my favorite beers so of course the aroma is excellent. The Galaxy dry hop adds even more of a zesty, hoppy fragrance. Distinct passion fruit aroma. A blended medley of enticing fruits. Excellent nose. An easy 5 here.

T-The hops are incredibly pronounced. Such an assortment of fruits. Passion fruit, pineapple and mango. The Galaxy adds a very unique, almost mossy hop finish.light, sweet pastry maltiness. Hops are superb.

M-Medium bodied. Aftertaste lingers a while. Playfully bitter. Softer carbonation. Light resins.

O-Another great take on a brilliant base beer. The Galaxy hops add some extra zing. Nothing to complain about here, only compliments. Fort Point strikes again.

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
