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.

Handypaul (566) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Can. pours hazy amber with a 1-finger, white, fully-lasting, frothy to creamy head that leaves good lacing. Very light aroma of resin and sweet citrus. Lightly bitter taste, lots of alcohol flavor along with hints of toasted green tea, basement mold sand dough. Light to medium body and average carbonation. Finish is long and lightly bitter. Alcohol dominates.

[Can (16oz)] Pours a hazy gold with a large frothy white head. Lots of lacing. Mild but pleasant aroma (7+) and flavour (7+) of fruity hops and bready malt. Long moderately bitter finish. Alcohol well hidden. Easy to drink for a DIPA, I liked it a lot.

pictoman (1148) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2017
Poured from 16 fl oz can (canned on 04/04/17). Very lightly hazy golden yellow with full white head. Mild bready malt with grapefruit hops and mild pine and citrus hops. Medium body, alcohol mostly hidden. Solid beer overall.

Thanks to Dave. Dark gold pour with the requisite 1 minute head (or so says Vlad.) Lots of malty, boozy sweetness up front, with a lot of Cointreau flavor. To me it seems like an American strong ale. There is some tobacco and coffee like dryness in the finish. Aroma is strong and funky for the style. The can is 15 weeks old and I don’t know how much of that time it was refrigerated, so I’m not having it at peak. This didn’t do it for me, but I would like to give it another try someday.

Pint can. Tropical fruit hop aroma with notes of bready malt, citrus and pine resiny hops. Pours clear golden-amber colored with a large off white head that has excellent retention and decent lacing. Starts with sweet tropical fruit and bready malt flavors. Finishes dry, but quite smooth for the style with grapefruit hop citrus and acidity with a hint of pine resiny bitterness. Good stuff.

IrishBoy (4211) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 1, 2017
16 oz can from Country Club Liquors. Nose is papaya, pine, and orangey citrus. Hazy dark yellow gold with a medium lightly lacing off white head. Flavor is lightly bitter with lots of tropical fruitiness.

16 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy, resinous hops dominate the flavor with bready malt and tropical fruit in the background. Finish is long and dry. Great brew.

matty (431) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2017
16 oz. can. Pours a gold color with a slight haze and a thin white cap that doesn’t last very long. Aroma is strong citrus hops. Medium body. Flavor leans toward the hops but is still balanced with the malt. Finish is a little dry with more of the hops lingering well after the swallow. Excellent!
