2013 version 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.

I’m not 100% sure if this is the right variation of this beer. I had the cask-aged 3-Way IPA at the brewery, which is the beer I’m going to rate in this space that has been allotted to me to do such things on this Internets site-place. Here’s the rating: Wow, that was a nice, thick head sitting proudly on top of this beer. From the glass emanated a bright, cheery grapefruit aroma. The coloring was light cloudy golden happy goodness. The mouthfeel borrowed notes of lightness from the appearance and smoothed them out with a well-balanced blending of a hoppy punch with a veritable cornucopia of other flavors. I’m not normally a fan of the hoppier beers, but I really enjoyed this.

Benzai (14270) - 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.
