4.59/5 rDev -0.2%
Notes from 8/8. Bottle picked up during most recent release. Poured into a snifter.
A: 1/2 inch of thick, white head. Deep hazy golden body. Great lacing.
S: Dank, citrus (mostly grapefruit and orange), and maybe a little peach.
T: Again, intense, dank citrus (grapefruit and some orange) and pine. Very slight bitterness in the finish.
M: A little thin to start, but smooths out quite a bit. Clean, slightly bitter finish.
O: Intense and delicious.

4.48/5 rDev -2.6%
Drank from a 32 fluid ounces growler purchased at Trillium Brewing Company, Boston, MA
Served in a pint glass
The super cloudy, yellow ochre liquid was topped by a tight, fluffy, near three-finger tall head. The crown faded to a thin film. Minimal lacing. A few drippy streaks trickled down the glass.
The aroma was amazing. Super hoppy, fruity and juicy. Loads of tangerine and orange notes. Tropical fruits also came through strong. Mango and papaya were noticeable. Quite peachy. Touch of pine sap. There was an intensely dank, weed-like presence as well. All in all, remarkably intense and complex.
The flavor profile was also impressive, yet not quite at the same level as the aroma. Super hoppy and fruity, but more bitter than I anticipated. Orange peel dominated initially. Loads of pinesap. Like in the nose, the dank, weed-y hops were quite apparent. There was a strong peach flavor and subtle tropical fruitiness. White grapefruit came through strong on the finish. More pine resin appeared here as well. After every sip, the bitter pine and grapefruit notes lingered.
On the palate, the beer was lighter bodied, yet creamy, fluffy and smooth. Remarkably supple and slick.
Trillium's original Fort Point Pale Ale is an amazingly complex and intense version of the style, and the double dry hopped version pushes the envelope even further. While I really enjoyed this, I found it to be slightly more bitter and less drinkable than the original Fort Point. DDH almost seemed like a cross between Fort Point Pale Ale and their Congress Street IPA.
