Review directly copied and pasted from notes taken 1/18/15

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

A: Hazy, medium gold with some orange highlights - pours with a frothy, bright white head, maintains an almost solid head with a big collar, leaves some very nice streaks of lacing

S: Stupid amounts of hop aroma, no surprise there - potent, like a fresh bag of hop pellets - bright orange and grapefruit flesh - floral citrus - fresh pine, mint, and some dank notes - tropical notes as well with some pineapple and mango - very aromatic, but not harsh or aggressive - pale malts, light grains, and some light bread - very clean

T: Hoppy, juicy, and easy-drinking - orange and grapefruit flesh, very floral - pine, mint, straight-up hop resin - hints of pineapple, mango, peach, apricot - like the aroma, very hoppy but not actually aggressive - medium level of bitterness - pale malts, bread, clean finish

M: Medium body, nice carbonation, very smooth, easy drinking

O: How do you make a world-class beer better? More hops!

Fort Point Pale Ale is one of, if not my favorite APA ever. And this somehow improves on a masterful thing... At least slightly. Bravo.

Thanks to bilco for picking up the bottle. Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Hazy straw yellow. Head is fluffy, clumpy, bright-white. Drops to a soapy thin collar. Sheets of sticky lacing,. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Carries the typical mild stone fruit expected from Fort Point. Galaxy adds a big resinous pine needle and lingering bitterness. Some peach skin. Pale malts. Slightly bready with some undercooked dough. Slightly dank with some mango and passion fruit layered in the back. Some woody elements and a touch of mint leaf. Small hint of alcohol on the back with some seriously floral hops.

Taste: Peach pits, flesh and skin. A decent amount of passion fruit with a touch of mango as well. Super light malt base. Pale malt sweetness with a solid biscuity undertone. Typical lingering bitterness of all Trillium pale ales. Deep floral hops. Some pine needle and oily resin. Pithy. Hints of mint leaf.

Mouthfeel: Medium leaning to light body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly creamy initial sip with a mostly clean finish.

Overall: Blast off, blast off to nowhere.

The Galaxy adds a little something to it, but for all intents and purposes it's Fort Point.

Super fresh beauty, opened this one right after the regular Fort Point to compare because a good guy in the Boston area really hooked me up!
Much murkier yellow haze forms on the pour, aroma is really awesome, just like you remember your best Galaxy hopped brews being. Tons of tropical fruits and floral flavors. Taste is world class, mild malts, with a light pine feel on the way down. Finish on this is a little more hop-forward and not quite as smooth but still really great. Lucky to try this brew - definitely seek this brew out. Trillium is doing some great things right now1
