COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Perfect Storm Double IPA celebrates the rich traditions of brewing in the Northwest. The perfect storm of six different hop varieties combine to create a substantial ale with a clean finish. A proprietary blend of regional and European barley malts balance the hop bitterness while allowing the hop flavors to dominate.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Tap @ Taphouse Grill. Hazy yellow-gold with a short white head with decent retention and leaving heavy lace. Nose is citrus, floral and light fruits. Medium-heavy body with moderate, fine carbonation. Mouth feel is pretty slick, with a slight oiliness. Citrus zest, orange blossom, toast and spruce. Finish is long and fairly bitter, with some citrus. Certain aspects of this IIPA are ideal, others less so (for me).

A great DIPA from the master coast of IPA’s! Oakshire made a delicious beer that has a great combination and amounts of hops!

BrewGoblin (241) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
The dank train is pulling up at your station. What do you do? Toss ’er in to ya ya dummies! Oakshire is a pretty damn solid brewery and this kingly quaff is no exception. An alcohol laced storm that pours light ochre-orange with a white froth that laces better than your sneakers. Powerful alcohol is mostly masked by bold citrus, juicy, floral hops and some yummy straw and cereal malts. Pepe Le Pew is present but not egregiously so. Soft, creamy and medium bodied goodness but not bestness.

Frahmo (248) - Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2014
22 oz bottle at Bier 30. Smelled great, looked great... and then nothing. Pretty average Imperial IPA, with nothing spectacular standing out. Not one that I will try again.

IndianaRed (2315) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 16, 2014
22Oz Bottle at Bier:Thirty, Boise as part of their Oskar Blues tap takeover. Hazy apricot pour with a thin ring. Fruity sweet malt aroma. LIght bodied and lacking real big hop flavor. Not much fresh hop flavor. Just OK. Was expecting a bit more from Oakshire

bpreo (1491) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Very strong, very delightfully flavored. Other than the price tag, this is a must-have beer.

skoisirius (1570) - Earth, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2014
Big and bold hoppy goodness right here. Golden and hoppy as ever, but could be a bit thicker. Definitely a good choice and not excessively overpriced. Dank though!

Salmoniform (459) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - APR 16, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Crystal clear straw hue with an orange tint and creamy white head that settled but lingered. Aroma is tangerine, resin, sweet orange, slight pine, candied sugar. Mouthfeel is smooth with a medium full body and soft carbonation. Taste us sweet initially with a velvet bitterness following on the palate. Ethanol and a subtle malt sweetness round out he finish. Overall this is a nice I2PA. It could be dangerous because it drinks easily with a high ABV.

Lectvay (109) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle from co-op. This is a very nice double IPA. It was nicely balanced and flavorful, but I would say not as spectacular on the bright, fresh, hoppy flavors you can find in some of best double IPAs on the shelf these days.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
harrymel (1477) - Spokane, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottled: unk ABV 9.3% Pours golden with a soapy top of whites. Smells resinous, some peaches and citrus. There’s also a puke like hint on the backside of the nose. Flavor is malty, bitter, resin and body odor. Seems, complex, but lacking in synergy of flavors. Medium bodied with tight, moderate carb and a semi dry finish. Decent beer.

brenn79 (1471) - Idaho, USA - APR 11, 2014
22 oz bottle- Pours somewhat hazy golden with a nice bone white dense head and spotty lace. Aroma is sweet malt, spicy resinous hops. Taste is similar, syrup malt, resinous hops, solid bitterness that lasts long after the swallow. Not bad.
