COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India pale ale’s were designed to withstand the long voyage to India. Today, it seems one has to design the IPA strong and hoppy enough to make the trip back as well. Vortex IPA is the Fort George’s first foray into this strong beer category. Our IPA is made with generous additions of cascade, Simcoe and Palisade hops throughout the brewing, fermentation and conditioning phases, balanced with heaps of organic pale malt. We designed this to not rip your taste buds off your tongue, but rather vigorously stimulate them and your palate into a lupulin-ecstacy of pleasure. During the cross-country truck trip our brewery made to find it’s home in Astoria, it was nearly scattered to the cornfields of Nebraska by a tornado. We try to capture some of nature’s intensity in every pint. IBU 97

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
Rating #1623 - #CBC2015 Beer 8 - Welcome Reception - Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry piney bitterness and caramel malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

16 oz can- Pours slightly hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma is piney, citrus, dank and resinous, fresh marijuana. The taste is very resinous, piney, citrus, tobacco, grassy. Body is medium and carbonation is medium high. Really tasty stuff, i know i’ve had beers from this brewery before, but this one really stands out, might have to look out for more from them.

echudy (151) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Very slight hop scents, with maybe a tiny hint of citrus. Sort of a dark golden, a little bit of cloudiness. The flavor has very strong malt characteristics, with an after taste of some hops. Not a hoppy IPA at all
