Appearance - From thecan, the beer poured a cloudy orange color with a white head.

Smell - The nose smell of fresh oranges.

Taste - My first impression is tart orange with pulp. Light pine and tea qualities are present with the thick backbone. There is very little bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Talk about full-bodied, the beer had serious viscosity.

Overall - I feel like this beer would pair well with a steak.

Even though I had to fly to Boston, and drive to Canton - DDH Fort Point was well worth it.

It's funny because I really, really enjoy the base beer - Fort Point - and had badly wanted DDH Fort Point for some time... but when I planned my trip to Boston, I didn't think about that one particular beer at all. I'd hoped that Tree House might have a special release or something, but didn't give Trillium a second though. Lo and behold, I ended up getting bottles and cans of several Permutations - and finally had the joy of DDH Fort Point on tap.

The beer pours beautiful, a nice yellow-gold with a clean white head. It smells richly of citrus. I couldn't believe how free of bitterness it was - just a bit of light dryness, and tons of juice. I've occasionally scoffed at DDH beers that just don't seem any better than the base... this is not one of those beers. DDH Fort Point was absolutely worth the wait. My only lament is that it was not available in cans!
