India pale ale’s were designed to withstand the long voyage to India. Today, it seems one has to design the IPA strong and hoppy enough to make the trip back as well. Vortex IPA is the Fort George’s first foray into this strong beer category. Our IPA is made with generous additions of cascade, Simcoe and Palisade hops throughout the brewing, fermentation and conditioning phases, balanced with heaps of organic pale malt. We designed this to not rip your taste buds off your tongue, but rather vigorously stimulate them and your palate into a lupulin-ecstacy of pleasure. During the cross-country truck trip our brewery made to find it’s home in Astoria, it was nearly scattered to the cornfields of Nebraska by a tornado. We try to capture some of nature’s intensity in every pint. IBU 97

Sampled at Hawthorne Hophouse - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The flavor is heavy on the grapefruit and pine and some dry malt balancing it. The finish is pretty zesty. Nice IPA.

A wonderful NW IPA. Pours a little cloudy, but a pretty color. Nice floral, and fruity aroma. I love grapefruit flavors in IPAs, and this one does not disappoint. Nice bitter finish with a little pine.

Copper pour from can. This one is a winner. Taste is citrus, pine, flowers, dough and hops, with a nice boozy finish. Very well done.

16oz can @ home thanks to Douglas88. Pours almost clear orange with some small floaties, big white head. Aroma is fresh, sweet, fruity with grapefruit and orange as the most dominating. Flavour is again very fresh and medium bitter reminds me of the best summer days. Oranges, lime, pineapple and grapefruit. Medium body, medium carbonation, finish is long and balanced bitterness. I like the balance not overly bitter, fresh and quite drinkable.
