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

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass, sure why not. Canned July 24th 2018.

Quit a good soapy three finger bubbly head that dissolves and pops with quite a bit of gusto. Opaque dark lemon yellow to hinting orange body color, not quite full turbid character but also with a nice glow.

Very nice aromatic nose. Light malts with a touch of crispy brown sugar, mixing with a very noticeable tropical hop angle of mostly pineapple. Soft possible sensing body, with an excellent sugary quality that isn't overbearing. Quite nice.

Palate is very solid. Light bodied even for a pale ale, but just flirts with wetness in mouthfeel and inching to a chalk aftertaste. Base flavors are very good, a rich light almost crusty character with mixing pineapple and touches of light pine. Finishes about the same aromatically but goes almost weak mint and earth rich on the aftertaste.

Very solid new age pale, staying in both ground places, but also flirts with a little baby aspirin as well. Very drinkable and still enjoyable.
