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.

Reid (1888) - 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

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 4, 2013
A big, golden, hazy brew with a permanent head. A thick resinous beer, with spicy orange oil notes and some spruce-like herbaceousness. It actually drinks stronger than it is. It’s very tasty, but not something I could drink a lot of. Plus all that residual sugar would wreak havoc on me in the morning.

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.

harrymel (1500) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Canned 25JUN13 It’s a ruddy amber with a solid sheet of light cream foam. Smells nice and hoppy with citrus peels, grapefruit, some resin, some grass and grain. Flavor is bitter with grapefruit pith, peppercorn, biscuit and a little gold raisin. Medium bodied with moderately low carb. Decent enough, nothing special.

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.

neepsntatties (1207) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Can, at first, imbibed at the anniversary showing of "The Goonies" at the Columbian Theatre in Astoria, later on tap at Belmont Station. Colour...very cloudy golden-amber with a massive white head. Nose...quite fruity, especially boiled fruit sweets, with tropically fruity hops. Palate...a semi cloying thing to start, followed by loads of dried tropical fruits, hop resin and fresh alfalfa leaf. The mid palate is fresh and vibrant and the finish is long and loaded with fruit infused hops.
