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.

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 (469) - 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.

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

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 4, 2013
A big, golden, hazy brew with a permanent head. A thick resinous beer, with spicy orange oil notes and some spruce-like herbaceousness. It actually drinks stronger than it is. It’s very tasty, but not something I could drink a lot of. Plus all that residual sugar would wreak havoc on me in the morning.

kdhittel (49) - 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.

On tap at Micky Finn’s-- 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.
