Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: djmichaelk on 05-17-2012

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.

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. (342 characters)

-Snifter. Draft. 08.22.15

A: Translucent orange with no visible signs of carbonation. Thin off white colored head is 0.5 inches high with a slight amount of hold. No visible signs of lacing on the vessel.

S: Aroma of fresh oranges, citrus of light awareness. Faint hints of wet tropical pineapple move in.

T: The flavor had a nice level of bitterness, grassy-orange peel flavored hops provided a good amount of bittering factor right off the bat with some wet grapefruit and tropical notes. Bittering orange peel and flowery hops, dry hopped with flashes of malt sweetness for balance. The beer finishes up with a fresh grassy hop finish.

M: Body was medium, smooth texture, no carbonation factor, slight bittering.

O: This had a nice clean hit of hop bittering right from the start, grassy-orange dry hopped with a somewhat lingering finish. Goes down really nice. One factor i will reveal, but holds no real barring on the score is the price, initial at $4, but recently upped a bit to $4.50 a glass, this comes in at a real bargain, especially for the quality and hop awareness level that you really can't turn down a second, or third glass. First beer of the day from here and it was a good start. (1,212 characters)

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. (498 characters)
