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.

Pours a hazy orange with a medium creamy head. Aroma of fresh floral and citrusy american hops along with a touch of bready malt. Flavor was much of the same. Great american hop profile with just a touch of bready malt. Super crisp and dry. Loved it.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful, hazy pale orange. Aroma is citrus, tangerine, orange. Taste follows suit. The light bitterness is nicely balanced by the malt and the wonderful softness. It all works so well. Lightly dry. One of the best apaís Iíve ever had. Excellent.

jc1762 (62) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Pours straw yellow. The nose is incredible - fresh grass, straw, ripe tropical fruits (mango, pineapple, etc.) and a sharp cannabis tones attack the nose on this beer. The palate is the same - a good crisp bitterness expected from the a pale ale and the hops showcase all those juicy tropical fruits. Extremely sessionable and highly recommend it as fresh as possible.

Growler from source. Pours hazy orange, fluffy white head. Aroma is full of melon, grass, resinous hop, tangerine. Flavor is gooey grassy resin hop, mango and tropical fruits & gummy bears. Super smooth, crushable, APA heaven.

Pours a hazy orange and an aggressive pour produced almost three fingers of a white, foamy head. Mmm, very fruity on the nose with pineapple and grapefruit leading the charge. Believe it or not thereís also a creme or sherbert smell to it too. Hidden in back are some earthy hops. Those earthy hops on the nose are slightly subdued, but present nonetheless. The middle of the mouth picks up acidic orange.tangerine and grapefruit. Thereís almost a flowery/potpourri taste in addition to the fruits which actually makes for a nice combo. The finish is quite bitter with a big hop presence which is unusual because that typically tends to happen up front. Iím not going to be writing any complaints to Trillium about it, but Iím just sayiní. This has a light to medium body with plenty of carbonation bubbles dancing on the tongue. There are no unpleasant lingering flavors and it finishes clean with no alcohol taste. Fort Point Pale Ale is up there with some of the best of its style. It has a nice combination of hop bitterness and citrus to make this a highly drinkable beer with just enough carbonation and hop bitterness to satisfy hop heads and causal drinkers.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong citra, wheat, mangoes. Thin mouthfeel with nice juicy citrus hop, light bitterness, light dryness, very nice.

radarsock (1037) - Vermont, USA - NOV 3, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 $20 (5 for liquid, 15 for container) for the 64 oz. growler purchased at the source. To oversized snifter, it pours an effervescent web color orange with which a foam-whitish head 1Ĺ fingers in length stood. Aromas of sawdust, papaya, quinces, Midwest hops, American hops, polyethylene, unripe pineapple, tangerine zest, and vanillin. Tatses the same with the addition of guava, avocados, cotton duck, sidewalk chalk, and minerals. Soft and refreshing. Moderately astringent, like Adam said, but I appreciate those kinds of flavors so finishing my glass hadnít been difficult.

AdamJackson (2967) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bomber, 2 weeks old stored @ fridge temp. light yellow to orange pour. Nose is bursting with citrus, dried grapefruit skins and sweet mango. Taste is crisp, malty and graham cracker. itís a slight astringent and difficult to finish a glass but overall they nailed the nose and mouthfeel.
