COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 3-Grid IPA is our flagship ale. This India Pale Ales citrus notes are created by Chinook, Cascade, Columbus and Amarillo hops from Yakima Valley, making it a true Northwest-style crowd pleaser. The alchemists at Schooner EXACT balance the hoppiness with a hint of malt, making this IPA one that pleases the staunchest of hopheads as well as the microbrew newbie.

Can. This pours exactly how I want an IPA to look: a copper gold with a big fluffy head. The nose has a big juicy hop bouquet with a nice malty sweetness. The taste is an earthy bitter pine with a sweet finish. Well balanced and satisfying.

From a can into a pint glass. The pour is a cloudy orange with a minimum white head. Theres a piney, lemon zest, great malt balance. Second beer I have from these guys and Im impressed with this IPA.

Bottle from Haggens Grocery, Burlington
Hazy amber color, bright, with generous head. Very nice aroma, fruity, sweet orange peel. Lean mouthfeel, on the dry side, but soft on the tongue; mild caramel flavor, that lets the hops appear quite freely.
Very clean, good old school IPA.

Aroma is hops and malts. Pours golden with a rocky white head. Taste is citrus, spicy, malty. Finish is spice and faint banana. Good body and not too bitter.

It just IS an IPA. Bitter but not too bitter. Hoppy but not too hoppy. Nothing offensive and nothing spectacular. A scent of grass and hips and green, and a standard IPA flavor. Good, for sure, and drinkable - there is nothing that can go wrong here. But nothing that would suprise you, either.

Sampler at brewpub. Lightly citrus bit more grassy weedy in flavor. Very light and clean. Low bitterness. Fine enough stuff, could drink again but wont seek out.

Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of bitter citrus and light grass with a light grain backbone. Flavor has notes of earthy citrus and grass with a grain backbone.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Resiny, green hop, bitter flavors. May be a little old.

I cannot complain about this IPA. It is perfectly balanced. There are no uniquely discerning attributes or characteristics that may be memorable, other than the fact that this is just a damn good IPA. Prototypical for the style. Melds pine, resin, and to a lesser extent citrus notes in balance. Sufficiently hoppy, but doesnt give away anything on the malt bill, either.
