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 drinkerís fantasy Ė the 3-Way IPA. Organic two-row (we couldnít 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 Astoriaís slow sand-filtered water, and the 3-Way IPA becomes the perfect summertime beverage.

16oz can. A: Clean light orange body with a firm and fluffy white head. Looks very inviting. N: Pine, spruce and earth, though thereís not a really heavy dropping here. Some tangerine and pineapple. T: Decently bitter. Has a noticeable malt backbone, but itís got a stinging sharpness from the hops that isnít tamed. M: Very dry and palate scraping. Fluffy and full mouthfeel. O: A bitter power beer thatís middle of the road for a style for me. I expect a lot more from these three. Itís clean and well made, but itís not terribly interesting.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2013
A little sulfur on top of caramel, grain, herbal and citrus hop notes. Pours golden amber, thin head. Flavors of grain, caramel, citrus hops, a little herbal and danky, but with some sulfuric yeast presence that ruined it a bit for me. Nice carbonation, smooth and drinkable. Not a bad beer at all.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Can. Hazy orange body with a fine white head. Cheesy Simcoe musty fruit rind and pith, yeasty and sulfuric and (mildly) eggy. Sweet pound cake malt, sugary and sweet orange marmalade with a light touch of sweet onion / shallot. Sweet, bitter and yeasty. Smooth malt with creamy carbonation.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Draught. Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Much lacing. Aroma is fairly full, citrus aroma. Flavour is rather less, but more hop. There is some malt in the finish

Can from Tin Bucket. Pours hazy gold with off-white foam. Smells very subtle with hints of earthy lemon hops. Tastes slightly pepperywith a fair amount of herbal bitterness.
