COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the tried and true Vortex IPA, but bigger, hoppier and just as balanced as the Vortex that Fort George drinkers have been keen to since the brewery was almost scattered in a corn field. The brewers at Fort George were making A LOT of Vortex, but just felt like it needed more umph. After a rather strong early batch of Vortex in the pub, the regulars agreed, but this was not for the full pint. This beer is not for everyone, but surely hoppy and big enough for many in the Pacific Northwest. Heavily hopped with Summit and Cascade hops.

pushkinwow (2062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
Bomber via Ian. Dirty amber with dark tan head. Sweet caramel malt with lots of muted hops, grapefruit, moderate carbonation, moderate body, mild sweet followed by lots of bitterness and alcohol, long finish. Tasty but not sure if I would describe as a DIPA.

CampesinoTino (777) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bomber. Pours a cloudy dark orange and amber color capped by a generous layer of beige foam. Herbal hops, grapefruit rind, toasted malt and pine dominate the aroma. The flavor consists of hops resin, orange and pineapple with a bit of caramel malt and lemon around the edges. A little more malt-forward than most PNW style DIPA’s although it still packs a punch in the hops department.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle:   Very sweet pithy start, piney, hoppy, moderate to full malt background.   Dark orange in color, a little dirty, frothy sandy head with spotty lacing.   Feels a little sweaty because of the strong sweet pithy bits.   Pretty strong pith and peel on the backside.   Moderate sweetness, fairly chewy.   Wished it were a bit more subtle, but this one is big on pith and peel, no so much on the orange bits or even the floral aspects.   Decent, but hard to finish an entire bomber.   Thankfully I had help!

Sarlacc83 (900) - Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2014
On tap at the venerable Horse Brass. A: Cloudy orange with a thin white head. N: Orange, pineapple, grapefruit, grassy, leafy, pine, pink peppercorn, marijuana. T: Sweet natured with a hoppy bitterness. M: Resinous with a heavy body. O: Solid TIPA. Good hop presence. Sweetness is pulled into the pen. Better than their other beers.

maxwelldeux (3761) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is definitely hoppy, but seems more earthy and grassy than anything else. Taste is slightly bitter, but has a residual sweetness on the finish. Also ends up being a bit earthy for me here, too. OK, but not great for me.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 All I can say is wow. If you think that you’ve had it all the time you tried 60 Minute IPA, think again. There’s a new king in town and his name is Tex. From this little brewery on the Oregon Coast comes a colossal IPA that will fry your brian. Super complex, and rich it is now my all time favorite.

cobaink2 (93) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle from bear junction. aroma of resin and slight mango. like the bottle says this is like the vortex only bigger. the alcohol is apparent but not overly alcohol like some that are in this same category. Fantastic and bold.
