Fort Point Beer Co. Dipper Double IPA Review

Clear IPA? A bold move by Fort Point Beer Co., and one that we appreciated as its secrets revealed themselves: Bread crust on the nose, pink grapefruit and OJ on the palate, plus a note of toasted bread. The body is so light and crisp, and the sweetness so barely there, that its flavor belies its 8.6 percent ABV. A triumph of a double IPA in accomplishing brightness and balance of fruity aromas and flavors with a strong but subtle malt backbone, and a lingering citrus pith on the finish (but the fruity part more than the bitter part). A celebration of both boldness and subtlety.
