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.

Bottle from 99 bottles. Pours a hazy dark orange. Light tan head. Scent is citrus and hop. Taste it’s a bold hop flavor with some sweetness. Good beer.

Perhaps the best commercial double ipa out there. Finally a brewery is able to balance out a butt load of hop aroma and flavor with some interesting malts. You can tell they hop bursted this sucker because it has none of that early hop harsh bitterness. This is the way all IPAs should be made. Got mine at Mainbrew ABV.

Brand New 22oz Bomber from Whole Foods - Pours a deep orange with an off white head, a little darker then I was expecting. Aroma is awesome, but the first thing I’m gettin is Hawaiian Pizza . I get pungent smells of fresh cut garlic, grass and pine; sweet notes of pineapple, fresh tomato and some booze. Flavors are sweet and malty. The bitterness is really nice, you can tell a lot of hops went into this. Overall I like it’s but it pretty damn sweet.

Bomber from Belmont. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A massive resin bomb nose. The flavor is big over the top resinous hops, pine, dank hop oils, big malty backbone, a bit like a barley wine but clearly a IIIP in many ways. Hell, this is good. The sweetness and green hop bite isn’t for everyone (Mike J!), but despite intensity, this is drinkable. The bitterness in these IIIPAs is odd, somehow intense but also I would not describe this beer as bitter.

On tap at Saraveza’s 4th IIPA fest, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of brings out loads of cat piss, citrus hops, and some dank herbal hops. Flavour is very pungent, with loads of bitter pine, a touch of citrus, some earthy notes and more piney hops. Just enough malt to round things out. Finishes very bitter and piney hoppy. An excellent IIPA.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Good deal of caramel and pale malt, a little danky and fruity, some residual sugar notes. Leaning definitely towards the malt side. Pours amber orange, white head. Caramel, pale malt, some residual sugar, piney and fruity hop notes, moderate presence within all the malt forwards notes. Some peppery alcohol in the finish. Sweet, some lingering residual sugar. Too much malt for my liking.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2011
Tap at 16 Tons. Amber pour with a thick white head and splotchy lacing. Smells heavily of caramel malt with a muted citrus and tropical fruit tint to it as well. Taste is a little more hop forward with some pine joining the citrus fun but still a fairly substantial caramel malt presence. Thick mouthfeel, just this short of being cloying. Solid beer, but I much prefer their standard Vortex IPA.

Tap at the brewery. Dark copper colored pour with a thin off white head. Big malty body, toffee sweetness with a touches of earthy hops in the taste. Sweet caramel aroma with come citrus hops poking through. Too sweet, not impressed.

On tap @ apex. why is it so dark? i think barleywine but also at one point wonder if this is a CDA. Like many good IIPAs has some barleywine resonance, enhanced by that darkness. i smell hops resiny & citrus, dark caramel, prunes. The head fades quickly and then dark brown body may let a little light through.. the mouth gets confused, a light touch, but very drying. as with aroma the flavors mix and balance--burgundy, pine, dark caramel, alcohol. fiinishes sweetly
