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

This it’s an amazingly flavorful beer. I’m not usually an IPA fan, but this had win me over. All the other IPA’s in my waterhole are tasteless in comparison.

On tap at Pizza Schmizza in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma: malty and piney, with hints of caramel, bread, and resin. Taste/Palate: crisp; starts sweet, and finishes with a long bitterness.

My favorite IPA. Wonderful balance between hops and body. Bitter, but not overly so.
