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.

Double Dry Hopped Fort Point pours a glowing, hazy honey yellow with some orange hues mixed in. The foam is a couple fingers thick, creamy and slow to disappear. As it fades a netted pattern of lace clings to the glass.

The aroma is loaded with citrus. Tangerine, orange and lemon peel are all present. Some mango is also present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is dry with mild carbonation. The flavor is much like the aroma, loaded with tangerine and orange citrus. The tropical fruit (mango, pineapple) is more pronounced in the flavor, than the aroma. There's some honey flavored sweetness and a touch of pale malt in the background trying desperately to balance out the bitterness. A little bit of pepper appears near the end. It finishes bitter with some pine hop notes. Once gone the the citrus and tropical fruit lingers on the palate.

This is a super tasty beer with tons of hops and a fair amount of bitterness. It's very easy to drink, but I found the body on the dry side. Very delicious!

Poured into a Teku from 32 oz Trillium growler

A - backlit bright orange with mousse-like head that holds firm and dissipates slowly

S - tropical fruit orgy. Over-ripe Mango and pineapple. Behind the fruit is a nice fresh dankness. Hard to believe this is a pale ale, best aroma I've experienced for the style.

T - initial sip brings a ipa bitterness but that is only perception as the subsequent sips are light and refreshing. Light, clean, refreshing and crushable. Definitely a pale ale

M - light malt and great mouthfeel from the hops. No confusion this is a pale ale a shops dominate.

O - probably the best pale ale I've had. Incredibly drinkable with a aggressive dry hops that kick this phenomenal pale to another level. The nose is unforgettable and a must for any hophead. World class stuff.
