Fort Point Pale Ale - Double Dry HoppedFort Point Pale Ale - Double Dry Hopped
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

Likely the best pale ale I've ever had. Just hits every note - perfect balance, ton of flavor. If I could have this in my beer fridge at all times, I would. It just curb stomps the vast majority of pale ales I've had. Great citrus flavors, nice body. Surprising high ABV for a pale, which probably helps the flavor profile, but I'm not taking that as a detraction - this is a fantastic beverage.

Deep orange in color. No head created, at all. Nose was the least desirable quality, mainly due to not much there, especially given the color and extreme citrus taste. Taste is the magical moment. Superb beer. Surprised it is not considered a NE Style though.

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.
