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)

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.
