COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 3-Grid IPA is our flagship ale. This India Pale Ale’s citrus notes are created by Chinook, Cascade, Columbus and Amarillo hops from Yakima Valley, making it a true Northwest-style crowd pleaser. The alchemists at Schooner EXACT balance the hoppiness with a hint of malt, making this IPA one that pleases the staunchest of hopheads as well as the microbrew newbie.

I cannot complain about this IPA. It is perfectly balanced. There are no uniquely discerning attributes or characteristics that may be memorable, other than the fact that this is just a damn good IPA. Prototypical for the style. Melds pine, resin, and to a lesser extent citrus notes in balance. Sufficiently hoppy, but doesn’t give away anything on the malt bill, either.

Bottle @ Jon’s place on the 4th. Pours a bit hazy golden orange appearance with a lasting white head. A lot of caramel and bread in the nose. Dull grapefruit and herbal hops. Fairly burger. Nutty, toasted bready flavor. Slightly oxidized. Dull citrus. Not that great.

Awesome piney hop flavor and aroma. Lasting white head. The malt character is understated, bready flavor that supports the hops and not much else. Overall a great example of what can be done with hops.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Light amber body. Moderately hoppy aroma. Fresh hops in the flavor with some bready malts in the background. Alcohol well-hidden.

50belair (2356) - Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2014
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Clear deep yellow pour with an off white head. Mild piney hop aromas. Not huge but still note worthy pine and resin hop notes. Average body and mouthfeel. A nice IPA.

TimE (3261) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 23, 2014
Golden amber color with frothy white head. a touch of caramel, pine and touch of wood in the nose. Decent backbone, but very hop forward without being too aggressive. very drinkable and approachable IPA. Not huge depth, but well executed IPA.

douglas88 (6133) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bomber from whole foods. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A sweet fruity nose with some caramel and yeast. Sone dry yeast, big flavors of citrus, oranges, light bitterness. Good and smooth.

maxwelldeux (3696) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Can. Pours a very clear copper/amber color with a moderate white head on there. Nose has some floral and resin elements to it, and is very welcoming for a hop fiend. Taste is actually quite bitter, and keeps the bitterness going for a while on the palate. It ends up being a really nice hophead beer.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - MAY 7, 2014
Piney and floral hops finished with citrus. Decent body but really all about the hops. Quite vibrant, without quite matching the WC monsters.

On draught at Little Bird. Clear golden color. Citrus and pine aroma. Bready taste with citrus, rye, and malt. Finishes with a bready citrus aftertaste.
