COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Layers of hops-derived aromas and flavors of citrus zest and tropical fruit rest on a pleasing malt backbone in our Fort Point Pale Ale. Dangerously drinkable with a dry finish and soft mouthfeel from wheat. Our year round hoppy pale ale culminates in a restrained bitterness and dry finish.

Thanks to Rian for sharing! Very floral in the nose, fresh, smooth. The beer starts fresh, very fresh-hoppy, not too sweet, nice and smooth. The mainpart is smooth-fresh, slightly sweetish with lots of floral hops, that fit in the sweetish-floral aroma. The aftertaste is smooth, sweetish, floral, nice fresh and very smooth! 13/12/13/13

tectactoe (1524) - Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Tim. Cloudy amber-orange body with sunshine edges & a chunky, eggshell froth that lasts for a while on top. Chunky lacing all around. Aroma of grass, juicy mango, mild Munich-like malt sweetness, dirty earth, & some herbaceous, dank notes trending towards the back half. Taste incorporates a nice, smooth bitterness with lots of grassy & leafy hops. Light malt sweetness, like toasted pale malt, just bordering outside of the CaraMunich realm. Mid-palate brings out mango & other vague, dripping wet tropical fruits. Slightly juicy. Passion fruit. A touch of back-end herbal spiciness, almost a little white pepper-y, with a lingering & fading mango finish. A very tasty & well done pale ale.

This is pretty awesome IPA, the beer is amazing a lot of citrus with some tropical notes, slightly less heavy than most beers yet not as bitter as I would expect from the amount of hop flavor

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head. Clean pale malty base with piney hops, tropical fruity notes, and a nice resinous piney finish. Really good.

jackl (4379) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Gold pour with a small head. Pretty dank herbal hop. Some of that heady leaf, lemon peel and flower petals. The taste is very fresh and bright. Fruitier than the nose would suggest. Tropical mango and melon. Brash shoots and grass. Light body, zippy and active. Great stuff.

750mL Bottle. Catty, pungent pine and plastic nose. Intense and aromatic, but in a way focusing on the grating, coarse less desirable aromas of the new American hops. The plastic lime of Citra, the cat urine of Simcoe, the papaya seed and flint of Chinook and relatives. This essence translates over to the flavor, where some of these more ragged, beefy plant characters become softer tangerine, orange, and some pellet dust. Prickly and warm. I appreciate the balance of hop aroma and flavor to bitterness, but I’m not particularly enjoying the coarse, grating bite of the hop characters. There’s not a lot of backbone, either, with noticeable heat. Overbearing in the wrong dimensions. I wouldn’t buy this again.

Growler says "Double Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale". Handsome appearance w/stubbornly retentive head & lace.

Bangin' aroma of juicy Citra hops, tropical fruits, other awesomeness. Hearty (fruity) hop profile on the palate, nearly zero bitterness, no shortage of flavor. Quite impressive for a pale ale.

thirdeye11 (5501) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
(Growler) cloudy, light gold with soapy offwhite bubbles. Nose is fresh, citrus peel, grapefruit, and honey. Taste is medium bitter, grapefruit peel, pine, medium sweetness, well balanced, awesome IPA.

Beerathon (1111) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Can’t imagine a beer smelling better than this, tropical fruitiness is off the charts (pineapple, grapefruit, mango). Comes through in the flavor along with a nice malt backbone. Dry finish, lovely!
