Firestone Walker Fortem IPA
Lifestyle Mar 15 2017 / 0 Comments
There are beers, and then there are beers. And then, rising to the top like a drink designed specifically with kings in mind – there is the Firestone Walker Fortem IPA. Fortem is an unfiltered imperial India pale ale that draws upon a huge range of different influences, all while exhibiting a DNA that is grown right here in the United States of America. It effortlessly blends hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest and Hallertau, Germany with malt and oats, all coming together into a veritable cornucopia of full bodied taste with a nice, rounded mouthfeel.
Firestone Walker Fortem IPA makes its expressive mixture of aromas seem all-too-easy — including mango, delicious blueberries, raspberries and more. After you let it sit in a glass for a short period of time, it opens up even further to reveal stone fruit blossoms and mandarin oranges like a special secret that is only for you to share. It finishes up with just the right amount of bitterness to motivate you to finish off your current drink and open another. With 8.3% ABV and a 55 IBU, this is a beer that was meant to be enjoyed again and again. Note that Firestone Walker Fortem IPA is best if you enjoy it within 120 days of the bottling date.
