BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our signature American pale ale balances light, crisp, malt character with an abundance of hop-derived aromatics and flavors from the use of Citra and Columbus. The fragrant nose is fresh citrus, tropical fruit, and peach. Bold flavors of pineapple and mango mix with dank notes of zesty citrus and fresh pine needles. With the smooth mouthfeel, gentle bitterness, and dry finish, Fort Point is our standard daily-drinker.

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

HOPS: Citra, Columbus

Cloudy straw appearance with slight whit head. Mild hoppy aroma with a touch of citrus. Taste is definitely pleasant citrus first with a hint of hoppyness

Very enjoyable DDH pale ale. Perfect balance but it definitely taste more like an IPA. Citrusy, grapefruit, and mango. Medium bitterness, yet very smooth.

I've had the Enigma-hopped variant, but boy howdy, I surely prefer the original - beautiful, creamy head, wonderfully hazy and juicy. This exemplifies what I love about NE IPAs. I'd happily drink this for about 50% of the rest of my life. Then if I could have Abraxas or Vanilla Noir for the other 50%, life would be good.
