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.

Alphadelic (1974) - 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 (82) - 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.

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.

Can:   Dirty straw, mild to moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Citrus based aroma.   A touch candied.   Smooth on the tongue, pale hops, citrusy, faint earth notes.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering earthy mallt finish, a bit dank, citrusy.   Dank finish, a touch earthy, a little bit candied, with a citrus based hop bitterness.   Decent IPA, middle of the road, albeit more complex than most.   Strong citrus notes linger.
