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.

About 2.5 weeks old. 750ml bottle. Lost Abbey Teku.

Pours hazy amber with big 2 finger head that leaves mild lacing. Smell is dank grass and light marijuana aromas, pine, light pineapple and mango. Taste is much of the same but focusing no on the citrus as opposed to the tropical fruits. Grapefruit, and orange are forefront. Clean mouthfeel with good carbonation and medium body.

Fort point is already a great hop forward pale. This adds on of my favorite hop varietals and brings it to the next level. Well done.

My thanks to my friend @BigStein88 for this incredible bottle.
Poured from the 25 oz bottle into a tulip.
Pours a beautiful glowing bright and glowing quality with minimal head.
Smells fucking incredible. The biggest and most beautiful Galaxy aromas Ive ever experienced.
Tastes even better. Juicy, big, fat, dank hop flavor with enough malt backbone to keep it together.
Mouthfeel was so incredibly drinkable.
This beer was gone way too quick. It was fantastic! Glorious!

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.

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.
