3LB IPA was originally named for the 3 pounds of cascade hops that we put in every barrel. This well balanced IPA gives the drinker a powerful hop experience while maintaining a malty sweetness which allows the uninitiated to appreciate its grapefruit characteristics. We trust you will find 3 lb. a pleasurable way to consume hops.

St. Boniface is my most local brewery so after alot of ratings I think its fitting that my first review is my favorite beer from St. Boniface. On to the beer,
Pours a copper color with a thick soapy white head. The smell is my favorite part of this beer. It smells of fresh hops and a little of sweet malts. The taste is clean ipa, nothing fancy just exactly what you want from a good ipa. Overall the beer hits on all of my marks for a solid ipa and thats why im a often customer of the brew pub.

Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a small off-white head that lasted a while. Nice lacing around the glass. A slight spiciness and some gentle floral notes. Hops are more on the piney side. Pleasant piney bitterness upfront, a little mango and pineapple, some maltiness, and a spicy finish with great carbonation and a mildly dry finish.

12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Served in a who cares (take that drabmuh).

Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a soft golden hue against light. Retentive, finger thick cream colored head and some specks of lace. Malt forward nose, biscuity and bready with a light citrus hop finish and some lingering sweetness. Flavor is still malt forward, but has a stronger hop presence than the nose suggests. Bready malt dominates and a mild citrus sweetness tries to balance it out. Full body, with medium carbonation. Not a great AIPA, but if this was supposed to be a hoppy amber I'd be more satisfied.

64oz growler into a snifter. A previously unknown beer and brewery, courtesy of dashirey (thanks Dain!) as part of the Growlin' at the Moon GIF for Apr 2012. Opened at a small tasting with a few beer geek friends.

A - Slightly hazy golden yellow, with a small off-white head that lasted a while. Nice lacing around the glass.

S - For an IPA it doesn't have a lot of nose. A slight spiciness, almost like a rye beer, and some gentle floral notes. Hops are more on the piney side.

T - Wow, this is a lot better than the aroma would lead you to believe. Pleasant piney bitterness upfront, a little mango and pineapple, some maltiness, and a spicy-ish finish.

M - Nice and full, with great carbonation and a mildly dry finish.

O - This was the surprise hit of a night full of outstanding beers. Everyone seemed to like it, and all of us were wondering where this brewery came from. I've got another growler of their DIPA, so can't wait to see how that one turns out. Will definitely be seeking out more of this in the future.
