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 drinker’s fantasy – the 3-Way IPA. Organic two-row (we couldn’t 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 Astoria’s slow sand-filtered water, and the 3-Way IPA becomes the perfect summertime beverage.

Benzai (8104) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF day 3. Clear yellow color, virtually no head. Nice tropical fruit hop aroma. Taste malts, hops, tropical fruits, quite some alcohol for this ABV which is a pity, pretty bitter. Decent body and carbonation.

Can. Hazy orange body with a fine white head. Cheesy Simcoe musty fruit rind and pith, yeasty and sulfuric and (mildly) eggy. Sweet pound cake malt, sugary and sweet orange marmalade with a light touch of sweet onion / shallot. Sweet, bitter and yeasty. Smooth malt with creamy carbonation.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Can:   Dirty straw, mild to moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Citrus based aroma.   A touch candied.   Smooth on the tongue, pale hops, citrusy, faint earth notes.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering earthy mallt finish, a bit dank, citrusy.   Dank finish, a touch earthy, a little bit candied, with a citrus based hop bitterness.   Decent IPA, middle of the road, albeit more complex than most.   Strong citrus notes linger.

after4ever (6108) - 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.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2013
A little sulfur on top of caramel, grain, herbal and citrus hop notes. Pours golden amber, thin head. Flavors of grain, caramel, citrus hops, a little herbal and danky, but with some sulfuric yeast presence that ruined it a bit for me. Nice carbonation, smooth and drinkable. Not a bad beer at all.

boFNjackson (4126) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Can... Poured cloudy golden amber with a thin white-ish head. Nose had earthy, resinous spiced hops. Similar hop tones in the flavor. Some bready malts for balance but low on sweetness and a nice bitterness. Citrus, black pepper spice, nice carbonation and a little drying towards the finish with some yeast notes there.
