This is the third variety of Fort Point Pale Ale I have reviewed. The original, Mosaic Dry Hopped and now the Galaxy dry hopped version. All have been excellent and received 4.5 star reviews. You just can’t go wrong when you start with such a solid pale ale and amp it up a bit with an extra dry hopping.
Appearance is a little less hazy than the original and the Mosaic version but still far from see through. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruits; mango, pineapple, grapefruit and a bit of citrus – really excellent smelling beer. Taste is super juicy fresh hops, not as crazy as the double dry hopped varieties but still a crazy amount of hops especially for what is called a pale ale. Carbonation, mouthfeel are all right where I like them.
Just another excellent brew from Trillium.

Brewer’s Description: This version of our signature American pale ale is dry hopped with the pungent Galaxy variety. Enticingly hazy and blonde in appearance with frothy carb, the nose erupts with strong citrus, passion fruit, and pineapple aromatics. Upfront and resinous hop-derived flavors of grapefruit pith, peach, and mango are balanced with a subtle, bready malt character and mild, subdued bitterness.
