On a birthday visit to Astoria, Oregon, we discovered the Fort George Brewery and Public House. this is a wonderful place, a must to check out when in Astoria. The beers are plenty and interesting, the food was very good (I had Albacore Fish & Chips with homemade tartar sauce - Excellent!). So let's talk about one of their beers I had while visiting.... The Bad Juju Double IPA. If you've read my blog, you'll know my affinity for Double IPA's, so it's no surprise, I had to order this beer upon spotting it on the menu...
It pours a dark coppery amber with a medium head.
It smells heartily of hops. It smells tart instead of a flowery bouquet, it has a balanced hop aroma.
The taste is strong with hop all over the place. It is full body and malty and a little thick. The bitterness sets in on the back of the tongue.
The aftertaste is bitter and coppery. It lingers for awhile on the palate and destroys your taste buds for any subtle beer after it, which I love the girth!
Their beers are available from to go from the brewery, I don't think they bottle at all, unfortunately!
