McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 11 of 140: A McMenamins Bel-Ore IPA that I enjoyed at their Murray & Allen Pub in Beaverton, Oregon, in the western part of the Portland metro area. According to the brewer:
“Two worlds collide in this hybrid brew. An original Belgian yeast strain meets a standard Pacific Northwest IPA. Light in color, this beer is hoppy with a lot of character. Centennial hops do most of the work while Simcoe hops were added as a dry-hop addition to enhance the citrus. Classic Belgian flavors of bread, cloves and spice work well together.” Measurements: 6.3% ABV • 66 IBUMy notes from that day read: “This was pretty good ... I didn’t notice the Belgian yeast flavors. It reminded me of Sunflower IPA, bitter hoppy and not fruity hoppy ... nice! I would get it again.” May 2018. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 12-100mm f/4.0 zoom lens.
