Double Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale AleDouble Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale
Notes: 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. The added hops richly enhance the juicy tropical fruit flavors of pineapple/mango, create elevated green, herbaceous aromatics, and increase body.

MALT: American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, C-15, Dextrine

HOPS: Citra, Columbus

16oz can served in a stemless wineglass. Dated 01/25/22. Received from @WunderLlama in NBS BIF #14.

Pours super murky whitish yellow with a medium sized head that dissipates into a medium sized ring and a fairly large but thin island of fine bubbles in the center of the glass. Smell...well, for starters I been catching whiffs of it for where I set it, arm's length away (and I have long arms). Smell is gorgeously tropical juicy, pineapple/mango/orange. Lingering resin sense that is difficult to extricate from the tropical juicy stuff.

Taste is much pithier / redolent of fruit skin than the aroma suggests. It's bitter up front, lots of resin, and the tropical juiciness is strong but lurking not-so-subtly in the background.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, dry / drying, slightly gritty. This is a very good beer.

One month old. Can to wine glass.

Look: Pours a pale, but somehow full and hazy yellow with a large-pored white head that dissipates quickly without leaving any lacing. No floaters.

Smell: Fresh citrus notes. Mainly lemon with hints of grapefruit.

Taste: Yellow citrus fruits. Fresh and hoppy. Zesty and bitter body with a dry finish. Low sweetness.

Feel: Very juicy with a medium carbonation and a sharp zesty punch.

Overall: Full and juicy Pale Ale with a strong focus on fresh citrus fruits. Could easily be mistaken for a DIPA. Very challenging compared to other Pale Ales with its full body and its dry finish. Great beer. Very intense.

Pours small head. Disappears into a juice like substance. Classic trillium. They sucks with head.
That’s ok tho because the beer has a great pineapple grapefruit oniony nose.
Flavor is bitter on the front and nice grapefruit and pineapple on the back.
Really delicious. I like the bitterness. Something a lot of northeast IPAs don’t have.
Really good pale overall.

Yellow, just slightly less bright than orange juice, and totally opaque. White, very soapy head, dissipates rather quickly and doesn't leave much lacing. Sweet, sticky, dank, mango, ripe, pineapple smell, a bit of smarties. Taste follows, just dank, hoppy, herbaceous, grassy, fruity, sticky, berries. Clean mouthfeel, and a floral aftertaste.

Cloudy, medium orange, with some yellow/gold highlights, for the look. Very fruity, tangelo peel and some grapefruit peel, in the aroma. Rather thin bodied & tasting. The flavors are mainly, mixed citrus peel, with just barely enough, medium light, toasted malt, to give it any body whatsoever. So-so.

Haven't had a straight up "pale ale" this good in a while. Really packs a wallop. It has that NE style to it customary to all Trillium ales. Very impressive.

Phenomenally dank and yet balanced. If you like hops and haze, it doesn't get any better than this. Sessionable, too, at only 6.6%.

I pop the top and take a gander. Golden color in the can, and there’s dank hop aromas wafting up to my schnoz. We are on the hop train, baby!!!

A fairly aggressive pour reveals very hazy golden color beer with a sudsy bone white head. Gorgeous beer. Meanwhile, my schnoz is being assaulted by dank citrus aromas, primarily tangerine and grapefruit, with some juicy pineapple and a touch of berry. I’m guessing a Mosaic- and/or Citra-hopped IPA/DIPA of the NE-style.

The taste is all about the dank - tangerine, touch of grapefruit, delicious pineapple, and more berry flavor than indicated by the nose, and a hint of pilsner malt. Most of all, this is JUICY. Very refreshing, too, but there’s a smidge of alcohol present, so I’m locking in on a DIPA that features the Mosaic hop.

The mouthfeel is soft and very full, validating my belief this is a DIPA. And it is world-class, IMHO.
