Fort Point is, without question, the best APA I've ever had. Trillium hit it out of the park with this one. I picked up a Case 2 days after it was bottled, so I've had only very fresh bottles FYI.

Appearance - Pours cloudy amber with a nice 2-3 finger head. The color is a bit darker than you'd expect. Fort Point is darker in color than Trillium's Congress Street IPA by several shades.

Smell - Open the bottle and you'll instantly smell fruity hops. The Citra really shines in this one.

Taste - Follows the smell. There's plenty of lemon/lime, grapefruit, and other citrus flavors, but they're nicely balanced by the use of malt and wheat. The wheat adds a unique flavor compared to other APAs - just a hint of banana sweetness maybe?

Mouth - Perfect. Smooth, crisp, light, nicely carbonated.

Overall - I could drink this beer every day. It's also my wife's favorite beer. Everyone I've shared it with has given me a double take WOW. It's really that good. If you like APAs/IPAs and are in the Boston area, Trillium is a must stop.
