One Very Solid Pale Ale Beer From Trillium

Time for another beer and beer review, and this time I am going to a well-known northern brewery that is on the list of many. This is my look at the Galaxy Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale from Trillium Brewing Company. This brewery and its brewers are known to put out some high-quality beer, so I was glad to have a chance to try it. It is not a beer near me, so having a friend come through makes it oh that much more special. In the craft beer world, Trillium is often seen to be one of those that sits up high on the mountain. Nevertheless, enough of that let us talk about this beer.

The beer abv of this pale ale is 6.6% and IBU was not listed on the website, although Untappd did note it as 45. However, I have found a good amount of errors on Untappd, so take that for what it is. Hazy, juicy, aromatic, citrusy, topical, resiny…blah, blah, blah, this beer is all of that for sure. There is a good presence with the beer that it just provided a great mouthfeel for me. It almost made my palate dance from all that took place with the scope of the flavors from the hops. I could have easily sat there and chugged the whole thing, and I had more than one then I may have done so. The juiciness of the ale also delivered nicely, and overall it was highly solid pale ale and the dry hopping of it was done nicely with the Galaxy hops. Again, thanks Joe for sending it my way. Check out the video to see and hear more of my thoughts on this hazy pale ale and if you did experience this or any of their other offerings or varieties of this ale then leave a comment letting me know what you thought of it.
