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.

Tap. Poured pretty dark orange amber color with one finger of foamy head. Aroma is pretty classic NW IIPA, big citrus and pine. Flavor is juicy citrus, strong pine, and just enough malt and alcohol. I’m not sure about triple but a great double/imperial IPA.
