McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 63 of 140: Influential IPA was one of six beers I sampled at Lucky Staehly’s Pool Hall, in the basement of the hotel, one of eleven venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Edgefield property in Troutdale, Oregon, on the eastern edge of the Portland metro area, on the 2016 summer solstice. According to the brewer:
“This light, crisp IPA was inspired by the warmer, long days of summer. Citra hops provide aromas of lemon, lime, and grapefruit. US Goldings and Amarillo hops lend flavors of tangerine and mild, delicate floral characteristics from their time together in the whirlpool and kettle. Finally, we fermented it with Imperial Barbarian yeast to impart esters of fresh strawberries and stone fruit.” Measurements: 6.6% ABV • 50 IBU
