India Pale Ales were originally designed to withstand the long voyage to India. Today, brewers concoct IPAs strong and hoppy enough to make the trip back as well. Vortex IPA is Fort George's contribution to the IPA arms race. With generous additions of Amarillo, Simcoe, and Centennial hops throughout the brewing, fermentation, and conditioning phases, balanced with heaps of organic pale malt, we designed this to not rip the taste buds off your tongue, but rather vigorously stimulate them and your palate into a lupulin ecstasy of pleasure.
American IPA's are aggressively hoppy and feature citrus, pine, resin, herbal and other American hop flavors. Among IPA's, the American version is extremely popular with those who enjoy assertive, aggressive hop flavors and aromas.
