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.
ABV: 6.6 %

Can shared at the Christmas Party tonight. Slightly hazy deep yellow with a moderate white head. Tropical earthy citrus and pine on the nose and flavor. Decent bready malt backbone. Tasty beer for sure.

Pale orange yellow as expected, slightly more bitter and classic citrus rhind flavor than expected. Less juicy than the galaxy version, less dank than the Nelson, less juicy and more pithy than the galaxy. Aaaand yet another addition to the top tier of pale ales. Though it drinks more like an IPA :) Between 42 and 43, so if my score fluctuates, thats why.

Pounder can via PUBR. Pours hazy straw with white head. Hops, citrus, florals in the nose. Smooth flavor, complex, dense, hops paired with tropical citrus, florals, and a very smooth finish. Incredible APA.

superspak (4993) - Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Got in a BIF from oline73. 16 ounce can into signature tulip glass, canned on 9/16/2016. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon/orange peel, light pine, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon/orange peel, light pine, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, wheat, cracker, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.6%. Overall this is an outstanding pale ale. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Not quite as vibrant and aromatic as some of their other beers, and more resinous/drying in the mouthfeel; but still highly enjoyable.

Can shared with the DB guys. Light hazy yellowish pour with a frothy head. Tons of juicy mangoes, orange, some pine, light floral and some light bitterness. Juicy and good!
