This double dry hopped pale ale contains the same base ingredients, for both malt and hops, as Fort Point Pale Ale, but with an additional dry hop of Citra.

A: Poured into a nonic pint to a hazy yellow topped by a finger and a half of dense white head that fades to a collar around the edge of the glass. This thing looks like the poster child for juice beers
S: Smells of sweet citrus with tons of orange notes with some slight hints of grapefruit rind
T: Taste is bright and juicy citrus hops with some nice grapefruit and orange notes with some hints of malt. Slight citrus zest as well as the juicy hop notes. Swallow is more juicy citrus hops with some grapefruit notes and some lingering citrus zest.
M: This beer is medium in the mouth with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is adequate and slightly prickly with a refreshing oily hop finish
O: Overall this is a phenomenal beer. Great flavors and complexity which really makes this one a joy to drink. Very enjoyable and crushable as well. Definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on it.

Tall but foamy white bubbles build on top of a pale, fully opaque light maize body. The head settles to a weird film of sparse airy bubbles that look like albino pubes, then quickly to nothing. It becomes one of the weirdest looking IPAs I've seen, mainly due to the lack of a revivable head, and a super still pale corn-milk color that almost looks like Vig.

Hops are plentiful and popping on the nose, but not as pungent, fruity or spicy as some of the other DDH Trillium beers, which may be why this is a higher rated brew of theirs...? I'm getting mango, peach, a little pine, pineapple and a touch of bready malt.

Taste is super spicy and herbal with light pine-mint-eucalyptus flavors that lead into a tropical fruit cocktail with a mango focus. Some breadiness makes an attempt to remind you that there's malt in this hop showcase, but a little cologne-esque musk and that peppery, eucalyptus minty pine gives this quite a good bitter bite to finish off all the tropical characteristics for good.

Feel is thin to medium, crisp and rather chewy.

I'm not sure this is drastically different from the regular version, and I'm not sure I like this better than it either. I may actually like the other a bit more, but in any case, I think I can definitively say the Citra hop is not in the top 3 in my personal rankings.

By far my favorite pale ale in the market. The double dry hopping imparts so much awesome tropical fruit flavor. An absolute pleasure to drink. The team at Trillium never disappoints. Bravo.
