COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2013 version Great things come in threes. Grain, Hops and Yeast. Fort George, Gigantic and Lompoc. Beer, beer and beer. The next seasonal can release from Fort George Brewery brings them all together to fulfill every beer drinker’s fantasy – the 3-Way IPA. Organic two-row (we couldn’t get 3-row) malted barley creates a solid, crisp profile and a clean, straw-colored hue. A fine balance of aromatic hops treats your senses to a symphony of fragrances and flavors. Add a hardworking California Common yeast and some of Astoria’s slow sand-filtered water, and the 3-Way IPA becomes the perfect summertime beverage.

chuckstout (336) - Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Fruity, citrus, danky, resinous aromas. Pours a clear golden/orange color with a white head and good lacing. Nice carbonation the bitterness lets you know it’s there, but never steps over the line. Many subtle flavors really enjoyable.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2013
The kind of IPA I like. Smooth and balanced. Beautiful and full-flavored malt backbone, complemented by hoppy flavors and --importantly -- just the right amount of bitterness. You know you're drinking an IPA, but this is not bitter for the sake thereof. A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3
riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2013
A little sulfur on top of caramel, grain, herbal and citrus hop notes. Pours golden amber, thin head. Flavors of grain, caramel, citrus hops, a little herbal and danky, but with some sulfuric yeast presence that ruined it a bit for me. Nice carbonation, smooth and drinkable. Not a bad beer at all.

On draught at gigantic. Pours a beautiful bright cloudy copper color. Frothy small white head. Nice nose of hop and grass. Flavor is of hop balanced well with citrus. Surprisingly smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can. The first aroma to hit these nostrils after cracking this open is a resinous hoppy dankness wafting out of the canhole before I even poured it into my Duvel tulip. Pours hazy golden with a large white head with good retention. Taste is bittersweet and not quite as nice as the aroma let on. Nice hoppy flavor but not quite what I was expecting considering the aroma. It has a pleasant candy sweetness without it becoming cloying, though. Prickly carbonation, medium body. Nice IPA overall.

3.7
BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Growler from B2 Taphouse. Grapefruit, pine and caramel. Resiny. Well balanced. Long bitter finish. Solid IPA. Tasty.
