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.

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.

Benzai (8107) - 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.

neepsntatties (1202) - 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.

kdhittel (52) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Big hop bite on this tasty, very piney and hop forward IPA. Pours a clear light copper, with grapefruit and peach notes on the nose. There's still a slight residual maltiness that rounds this beer out, but the hops are what shine and pop in this IPA.

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.

harrymel (1496) - 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.

Golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Super nice IPA flavor and hops finish. Awesome Big hops all through out the beer.
