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.

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 I’m 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.

Cask gravity at 2014 GBBF. Hazed golden orange coloured pour with a lasting loose white head. Aroma is big juicy tropical fruit, mango and peach, very nice. Flavour is composed of base malt with light caramel, juicy tropical fruit. Palate is semi sweet, citrus orange. Decent cask condition. Very good indded.

Can... Poured cloudy golden amber with a thin white-ish head. Nose had earthy, resinous spiced hops. Similar hop tones in the flavor. Some bready malts for balance but low on sweetness and a nice bitterness. Citrus, black pepper spice, nice carbonation and a little drying towards the finish with some yeast notes there.

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.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Very hazy honey-orange with a ton of lasting off-white head. Aroma of moderately fruity citrus, floral hops, a tad of pine and caramel. Flavor is bitter floral hops with moderate malt sweetness and bitter finish. Despite all the foam, it feels a little flat.

Reid (1949) - 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
