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.

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

Fruity, citrus, danky, resinous aromas. Pours a clear golden/orange color with a white head and good lacing. Nice carbonation the bitterness lets you know it’s there, but never steps over the line. Many subtle flavors really enjoyable.

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.

Sample at Great British Beer Festival 2014. Clear golden beer with an offwhite head. Hoppy fruity aroma, grass, peach, mango, oranges, passion fruit, some grapes. Hoppy citrus and peach flavor, pine, raisins, passion fruit, grapes, some caramel. Really good.

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.

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.

16oz can poured Into my ipa glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a thick fluffy white head that leaves awesome lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, and lemon. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a decent hop bite but nice malt balance and California common yeast adds a nice flavor too. Mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied and creamy with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. Very nice summer ipa. 3 brewers that have a reputation for good ipa did a great job on this one.

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.

On draught at gigantic. Pours a beautiful bright cloudy copper color. Frothy small white head. Nice nose of hop and grass. Flavor is of hop balanced well with citrus. Surprisingly smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
