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.

Canned 25JUN13 Itís 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.

The kind of IPA I like. Smooth and balanced. Beautiful and full-flavored malt backbone, complemented by hoppy flavors and --importantly -- just the right amount of bitterness. You know you're drinking an IPA, but this is not bitter for the sake thereof. A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Prufrockstar (1092) - 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.

Can, cloudy light yellow, big pillowy head. Amazing pine and hop nose. Crisp bold pine, hop, dry grass taste. Yumm.

Sarlacc83 (903) - 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.

raphael (898) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2013
On tap at Micky Finnís-- thanks Josh.. slightly hazy amber with modest white head. aroma of pine, caramel, & wheat bread. definite texture. flavor was chewy, hops still definite but pushing against a wheatish cloud, not sweet just white noise.

Can from Tin Bucket. Pours hazy gold with off-white foam. Smells very subtle with hints of earthy lemon hops. Tastes slightly pepperywith a fair amount of herbal bitterness.

Growler from B2 Taphouse. Grapefruit, pine and caramel. Resiny. Well balanced. Long bitter finish. Solid IPA. Tasty.
