Galaxy Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale

galaxyfortpoint

“We take our Fort Point Pale Ale and instead of dry hopping it with Citra, we opt for Galaxy dry hops. We really get after it; we use about 30% more Galaxy by weight.”

Final Rating: 4.64/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Trillium Tulip glass. Thanks Ryan for hooking me up with this!

Pours a very hazy deep golden body with a fluffy white head that reduces fairly slowly to leave some blotchy lacing and a nice layer of retention.

On the nose is huge citrus and tropical fruit aroma, pineapple and passionfruit, fresh hop acids, orange peel. Smells like this is going to be a delicious beer.

The aromas did not lie! On the tongue is a bursting medley of tropical fruit and citrus, pineapple, tropical punch, orange creamsicle, finished by a zing of fresh hoppy bitterness that lingers on the tongue for a minute. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is medium. Pretty easy to drink.

Overall nothing less than a masterpiece – the dry hopping really upped the aromas and enjoy-ability of Fort Point Pale Ale.
