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.

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
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.

Oakes (16507) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 Hazy amber with a thin head. Herbal, woody c-hop action on the nose with maybe some amarillo as well. A little bit watery but burly woody bitterness. Decent IPA.

mcberko (16053) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
UPDATED: APR 24, 2011 Bottle, pours hazy golden orange with a big white head. Aroma is quite piney, with caramel, grapefruit and citrus hops. Flavour matches this almost exactly, with very pronounced piney flavours. Very well done.

bhensonb (14620) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 4, 2011
One liter bottle that suggests growler. This from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy light amber with a frothy 2 finger off-white head. Were talking NW IPA here. Aroma of citrus over mild roast caramel. Med+ body. Flavor starts malty, but the hop (I think both citrus and resin) sort of knocks the malt out of consideration. It is marvelously bitter. It may not be the most bitter NW IPA ever, but if thats what you want, well, this should be in the top ten(for now). Wow, but this is damn good ale.

Ratman197 (14070) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2012
1 litre swing top bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of biscuit, floral notes, earthiness, mint, light grapefruit and a hint of pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, citrus and a hint of pine with a smooth dry earthy finish.

Tmoney99 (14013) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with very good lacing. Moderate complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Dogbrick (12365) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of citrus and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus and pine aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pine resin, earth and citrus with a little more malt than I like in the nose and flavor. Crisp and moderately bitter. Not bad.
