Day 3: Ft. George Overdub IPA

Free beer is much better than beer you actually paid for. That is especially true if its good beer. Today’s post is dedicated to a beer that was left at my house by a co-worker. I also just so happened to need an IPA for this series. So thanks Peter! This collab was a rather good one!

-Appearance: Light amber. One of the lighter looking IPAs that I’ve had in awhile. Head dissipates rather quickly. Poured very smoothly out of the can.

-Nose: Very, very, very big floral notes. Pine, but you get a nice bit of sweet malty nose as well.

-Palate: Bitter up front and through the mid palate and just lingers in your mouth. This is just a very quaffable brew. The malt is just sweet enough that it balances out the bitterness of the hops.

-Rating: 3.75/5: I’ve had several  different incarnations of the overdub collaboration series from Ft. George. All of them very sessionable, even if their ABV. disagrees with that qualification. Perhaps I’m looking forward to the warmer months but these bad boys are built for porch pounding. Ft. George definitely plays well with other brewers.

-Cheers!
