HOP-CENTRIC, STIMULATING, FORCE OF NATURE
India Pale Ales were originally brewed strong to withstand the long voyage to India. Today, breweries concoct IPAs hoppy enough to make the trip back. Vortex IPA is Fort George’s contribution to the IPA arms race. Brewed with generous additions of Cascade, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops throughout the brewing, fermentation, and conditioning phases, and balanced with heaps of pale malt. We designed Vortex IPA not to rip the taste buds off of your tongue, but rather vigorously stimulate your palate with lupulin ecstasy.
The grain bed often rises over the rakes in our 30bbl mash tun while brewing up Vortex. (That’s a lot of grain.)
