This version of our signature American pale ale is dry hopped with the pungent Galaxy variety.

Upfront and resinous hop-derived flavors of grapefruit pith, peach, and mango are balanced with a subtle, bready malt character and mild, subdued bitterness.

Trillium does it again. I thought Congress Street was fantastic, but Galaxy Fort Point is even more dialed in. It looks like pulp-less, hazy orange juice. Mostly citrus aromatics and the taste is incredibly orange and lemony. However, the bitterness is nearly non-existent with a sweet/malt balance that makes this brew smooth as can be.

A - great murky yellow - orange color, white head that sticks and leaves great lacing
S - big grapefruit, tangerine, kiwi, orange, lemon, lime, there's a tartness that bites your nose, almost smells like hpnotiq the blue liqour
T - big grapefruit, orange pith, lemon, lime, kiwi, bitter, lots and lots of tropical fruits, getting that same hpnotiq flavor that I got on the nose
M - medium mouthfeel, very bitter, alcohol covered, aftertaste is bitter grapefruit and citrus peel, like you chewed orange peel
O - bam. What a beer. It's crazy that it can be that fruity just from the hops.

It helps to spend some time away from Galaxy Dry hopped Fort Point Pale Ale to appreciate how amazing it is. I love trying new beers I've never had, and then I come back to GDHFPPA, and the look, smell, and mouthfeel are just too much to handle!

No joke. One of my top 5 favorite beers right now. So delicious and pours a crazy yellow hazy color
