COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great things come in threes. Grain, Hops and Yeast. Fort George, Gigantic and Lompoc. Beer, beer and beer. The next seasonal can release from Fort George Brewery brings them all together to fulfill every beer drinkerís fantasy Ė the 3-Way IPA. Organic two-row (we couldnít get 3-row) malted barley creates a solid, crisp profile and a clean, straw-colored hue. A fine balance of aromatic hops treats your senses to a symphony of fragrances and flavors. Add a hardworking California Common yeast and some of Astoriaís slow sand-filtered water, and the 3-Way IPA becomes the perfect summertime beverage.

Hazey orange white head. Zesty lemon lime rind with sweet doughy notes. Sweet bitter notes throughout, piney, resiny.

poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - AUG 11, 2013
16 oz can. The first aroma to hit these nostrils after cracking this open is a resinous hoppy dankness wafting out of the canhole before I even poured it into my Duvel tulip. Pours hazy golden with a large white head with good retention. Taste is bittersweet and not quite as nice as the aroma let on. Nice hoppy flavor but not quite what I was expecting considering the aroma. It has a pleasant candy sweetness without it becoming cloying, though. Prickly carbonation, medium body. Nice IPA overall.

BK7 (732) - Turner, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Growler from B2 Taphouse. Grapefruit, pine and caramel. Resiny. Well balanced. Long bitter finish. Solid IPA. Tasty.

Reid (1884) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2013
16 oz single can from "Lifesource" Salem OR. $2.49 Cloudy orange IPA, with a large thick,tight bubbly off white head. Spicy ,resiny,grassy hop aromas..quite fresh or so it seems. Taste is the same but with dank resiny hop taking the forefront. Slight lemon aspect also. Good thick yet drinkable palate..low carbonation. Nice enough IPA typical of the PNW style

Prufrockstar (924) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2013
16 oz can, consumed at home alone after fighting with my toddler to just go the hell to sleep -- a bitter IPA is just what Iím in the mood for. Pours hazy orange-ish amber with creamy head, leaving behind loads of lacing. Aroma is hugely piney. Some pineapple/grapefruit citrus in there for backup, mingling with just a bit of caramel. Taste is an explosion of resinous bitterness with just enough malt beneath to remain pleasant. Big lingering dry, bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Overall: This is a clean, big and bitter resinous IPA.

after4ever (6114) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2013
16-oz can. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a loose white head. No lace. Gorgeous big bright fresh dimensional grapefruit and pine nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel with grapefruit, pine, and orange on the mid palate. Loooong resiny finish.

crackedmachine (470) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Very hazy honey-orange with a ton of lasting off-white head. Aroma of moderately fruity citrus, floral hops, a tad of pine and caramel. Flavor is bitter floral hops with moderate malt sweetness and bitter finish. Despite all the foam, it feels a little flat.

Sarlacc83 (726) - Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2013
16oz can. A: Clean light orange body with a firm and fluffy white head. Looks very inviting. N: Pine, spruce and earth, though thereís not a really heavy dropping here. Some tangerine and pineapple. T: Decently bitter. Has a noticeable malt backbone, but itís got a stinging sharpness from the hops that isnít tamed. M: Very dry and palate scraping. Fluffy and full mouthfeel. O: A bitter power beer thatís middle of the road for a style for me. I expect a lot more from these three. Itís clean and well made, but itís not terribly interesting.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Draught. Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Much lacing. Aroma is fairly full, citrus aroma. Flavour is rather less, but more hop. There is some malt in the finish

On draught at PDX Beer Week 2013 Kickoff Party at Lucky Labrador. Light golden color. Honeyed citrus aroma. Grassy hop flavor. Oddly, has a smooth bitter finish.
