On tap at the Beer Stein in Eugene.

A - Light, golden yellow color with a foamy, just barely off-white head. Head had good retention and lacing was excellent.

S - Well balanced aroma of strong citrus hoppiness, light floral aromas, and a sweet aroma of sugar cookies. All the smells played off each other very well.

T - A very hop forward beer with strong citrus tastes up front, primarily grapefruit with a light lemon zest taste mixed in. An almost sugary sweetness provides a nice balance. Bitterness comes through very strong and lingers for quite a while. A very well crafted DIPA here.

M/D - Medium bodied that leaves a reinous coating of the mouth behind. Good carbonation levels and very easy drinking.

Served on tap into a snifter

A- Poured a really nice bright and hazy orange with white soapy head that left splashy lace. Very nice color on this beer

S- Very aromatic. Huge candied tangerine, pineapple, peach, and some caramel malt sweetness. Definitely get a lot of juicy, pungent, and fruity hop sweetness

T- Big candied tangerine, pineapple, peach, and piney hop notes. Very nice sweet caramel malt backbone. Very juicy and fruity hop flavors, fairly pungent, assertive hop bitterness on the finish

M- Very dry, soft carbonation, medium to full bodied. Substantial mouthfeel but not syrupy at all and no alcohol presence either

O- A top notch DIPA with tons of juicy, fruity, and sweet hop flavors with a nice complimentary malt backbone and enough bitterness on the finish to cut the sweetness. An amazing DIPA

Drinks a lot like Founders Devil Dancer. Incredible. Beautiful brown poor in a 6 oz. snifter with a finger of off white head. The aroma is surprisingly tame (maybe just too cold). As it warms, the bubblegum/juicy-fruit gum aroma gets enveloped by citrus and floral hop bitterness.

Triple IPA, yes, this drinks like an American style barley wine barley wine. Listed at 112 IBU, the caro-syrup sweetness pushes the complex hop bitterness to a higher plane of flavor sensation. Butter-caramel and plum/raisin in the backend. Very mild fruity alcohol on the breath.

Sticky. Wonderful.

Got this from Let's Pour mail order. Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, off-white that settles to an island and ring plus a little lace. Color is a clear orange amber with a couple lazy bubble trails. Aroma is hop, resin, some citrus, malt. Flavor's a very tasty blend of the nose qualities, has carbonic tang with the resin, citrus, hop blended perfectly up front with a little sweet in back. Body & carbonation are perfect too. Finish is like flavor, long, and a little boozy. Great drinking beer!

The ale appears dark orange with a small off-white head.

Aromas of citrus fruit, caramel malt, bread like malt and grassy hops fill my nose as I smell the beer. I also get a mild floral hop nose to the beer.

It tastes of citrus like hops with a grassy undertone. there is a solid malt background that is a mix of sweet caramel malt and dry bread-like malt. the malt provide the backbone for a strong bitter hop bite. a very well-balanced and tasty brew.

there is a solid medium bodied mouthfeel to the beer.

Overall a somewhat heavy full-bodied Double IPA. though it has a nice malt body it is still quite bitter and nice. Another great beer from Oakshire.

On tap at the new Oakshire pub the other day.

The beer pours a golden amber color with pretty good head retention and lacing. The nose is very impressive in this beer, as I pick up noticeable tangerine, light tropical fruit, and hint of dank earth, dry citrus and pine by the lumber yard. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this dry, West Coast style DIPA. It's impressive, but there's some noticeable heat from alcohol in the dry, hoppy/bitter finish. Mouthfeel is meidum bodied to fairly full otherwise, and the finish is long, dry and bitter, with a bit of an alcoholic bite. This beer has plenty sweet malt flavor, but the hoppy bitterness is more than sufficient to counter and balance it.

An impressive DIPA, no doubt, and I think having it fresh at the brewpub undoubtedly helped. My guess is that this DIPA probably doens't age well, which might explain some of the low scores for this beer.

Had this on tap at the Portland International Beer Fest in summer of 2009. The colour was kind of a peachy-amber, with no head. The aroma was ultra hoppy with an even fragrance of pine and grapefruit. On the palate it was surprisingly malty but then came the wave of hops which again were somewhere between being piney and grapefruit-like. There was a kind of grain-like character on the finish, but all in all, quite nice.
