COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fortem is a new-age imperial IPA that draws upon a range of influences, all while exhibiting DNA from our own forays into the IPA style. As such, it blends newer hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest and Hallertau, Germany along with pale malt, wheat malt and flaked oats for a full body and rounded mouthfeel. Fortem has been left unfiltered for a full hop impact.

BeerRenter76 (1041) - Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 Nice bright aroma of pineapple soda, and oranges. The body is very hazy mid orange in color, the cap is thick and leaves thick lacing. The palate is medium with a mild carbonation bite. Flavor is grapefruit, bits of pine with the malts coming out on the backside. Rather drinkable for an IIPA, not real big or overwhelming.

Draft pours hazy golden with a lasting white head. Aroma is very good, west coast IPA, citrus, both pine itself and the apple of the pine. Flavor is slightly sweet acme packing a decent punch of citrus and pine hops. Medium full, well carbonated, not too syrupy. Very solid.

The_Osprey (9343) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2017
September 2017 - Can share at Leighton's. Huge thanks! As 'Firestone Walker Leo v. Ursus #1: Fortem'. Golden orange, still and slightly hazy, foamy off-white head leaves light lacing. Aroma has some light tangerine, a little chalk. Body is light and frothy with soft carbonation. Taste is pink mice sweets, dusty dried citrus, syrupy backbone, resinous and floral-chalky hops. Quite sweet but tasty. (7-4-7-4-15=3.7)

16-ounce can pours clear slightly hazy gold with tiny off-white head and lacing. Aroma: citrus, honey, floral, pine. Flavor: pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, honey, pine, macadamia nuts. Mouthfeel: full-bodied, oily, lingering bittersweetness.

3.4
Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Tall boy can pours with a near clear deep gold body that supports a full off white head of foam. The aroma offers up banana, bubble gum, apple, pear and a hit of honey. The taste delivers banana and bubble gum. It gets a touch peppery to midway as sweet apple and pear like fruity esters as well as orange blossom honey bubble to the surface. Meh. Not sure what this is supposed to be.

RichTheVillan (8298) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2017
Can from Cotteridge Wines; hazy orange pour with a thin off white head, aroma has pine, tangerine and juicy mango, taste has smooth mango, bitter grapefruit, some crisp sweet malts, bit of a departure from the DIPAs I've been having recently, but a very pleasant one.

BierMeHoos (650) - Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2017
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro.
How: Large can.
Nice hazy golden pour, creamy white head and lacing. Aroma is citrus/ pineapple, with a hint of herbs. Taste is more light pineapple citrus and the malt flavors remind me of a pilsner, and also there's a black iced tea flavor that's reminiscent of certain malt-backed DIPA's (i.e. DFH 90 min.). But this is different. There's also an herbal/ tobacco-mint flavor, and it lingers in the finish as well. Feels full and very smooth, medium-low carbonation. Best part about this to me is the mouthfeel.

Can. Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Soft and sweetish malts, nice soft malt cream. Hops bring mild mango and mellow orange. Trace of peach. Good hop spice and pine. Smooth airy finish. Not that punchy hop wise, but wonderfully smooth hops and very very drinkable.
