Notes taken from the end of Oct 2014, this batch was released Oct 23rd 2014. Purchased bottle at the brewery.

1st bottle poured nearly opaque golden straw though the 2nd bottle which sat in the beer fridge for a couple of weeks cleared up a lot ... was very careful not to pour the sediment into the glass, noticed before I poured the beer there was still some particulate that was held in suspension. With that said I would highly suggest letting your bottles sit in the fridge for a week or so to help this beer clear up ... unless of course you are worried about the hops dropping off which they did not in my instance. I'll judge this beer off the second bottle for at least the appearance. Lacing was amazing, left rings all the way down.

Smells of orange zest, guava, ripe mango skin, & lime pith ... faint hint of bready malt / yeast in the nose as well.

Creamy, a bit of body with a moderate yet very pleasing level of carbonation. Juicy hop flavor throughout that mimics the nose. Somewhat aggressive hop bitterness is blanketed by the Galaxy dryhopping. Very well put together as far as the hopping goes, much preferred the 2nd bottle that was cold conditioned for a week rather than the 1st bottle that was freshly packaged.

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.
