look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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.

Enjoyed at the Armsby Abbey, poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Poured a very nice lightly hazy straw orange hue with a one finger head that leaves very creamy lacing and a dense creamy blanket. As it is drank it leaves a thick creamy lacing all down the glass. Wonderful.

S - Aromas of very nice fresh galaxy hoops, wonderful tropical notes, light pineapple, study mango and grapefruit. Nice pine, well done.

T - Taste has taken an already delicious fort point pale and improved it immensely with the addition of galaxy. Wonderful tropical notes, pineapple and pine with wonderful grapefruit. The finish is not overly bitter and is super drinkable. Just well rounded flavours here.

M - Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly sharp. Alcohol hidden nicely, super drinkable.

O - Overall I really enjoyed this beer. Very well done and the addition of the galaxy hops really made this beer pop. Would have again in a heart beat.

Drank from a 25.4 fl oz (750 ml) bottle acquired in an in-person trade with muzzy
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.

Bottled 08/02/14. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a strawish golden color with two fingers of soapy, off-white head. An extensive lattice of lacing and superb retention. (4.75)

S: Galaxy hops up front, with nice tropical and citrusy notes, twang of spiced honey (?), with a good amount of fresh bread and cracker malt in the background. (4.25)

T: The pale malt is in the forefront on this with kind of a toasty fresh bread character, though the Galaxy are still noticeable along with some honey, finishing mostly dry with a medium-light bitterness and a touch of sweetness. (4.25)

M: Medium-light body and soft carbonation. (4.25)

O: Tasty pale ale, fairly drinkable, with a decent but not super hoppy aroma/flavor. (4)
