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.

One liter bottle that suggests growler. This from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy light amber with a frothy 2 finger off-white head. We’re talking NW IPA here. Aroma of citrus over mild roast caramel. Med+ body. Flavor starts malty, but the hop (I think both citrus and resin) sort of knocks the malt out of consideration. It is marvelously bitter. It may not be the most bitter NW IPA ever, but if that’s what you want, well, this should be in the top ten(for now). Wow, but this is damn good ale.

Bottle. Amber malt syrup, pine resin / christmas tree and foot funk / cheese in the aroma. Sweet celery and stew-y blood orange and resin flavor. Bitter, sweet, fizzy, chalky with a sour malt finish. Not my bag, man!

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of citrus and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus and pine aftertaste. Decent overall.
