Craft Clerkenwell. Martin T tasting. Light haze on this gold beer, tidy off white head. Palate is light and a little dry. Light hoppy nose. Dry malt. Good bitter yellow grapefruit and pine hops. Touch of tropical fruits. Semi dry finish with a long bitter linger,

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
A coniferous hop cologne hovers atop this IPA’s slender biscuit-y malts, as honey-like undercurrents tag along the resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the translucent golden.
-The mouthfeel is very smooth.
-This is not a hop bomb; it’s just a very well put together hop vehicle, and quenching too.
-Hops also share bark-like angles.
-A very pleasant surprise from an unknown brewer. Always a great moment!

Can.

Thanks to the person who brought this to the Craft Beer Company in Clerkenwell for a tasting. I always like trying new West Coast style IPAs. While this is not the greatest it does put a new brewery on my radar.

Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated golden base shimmers like bright daylight. White head sits on top like chunks of melting ice. Spruce, pine, and bright citrus sweeten the air.

Flavor / Palate - The bright hops are the main star of a balanced approach to the style. It’s big and bold in the typical American style. The bitterness lingers like a long lasting sunset. I’d pick up a few more Oakshire beers on a trip out west based on this one.

Can at the Martin T tasting, CBC, 06/06/13 acquired from Beer Mongers PDX. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin off white head. Nose is grapefruit, bitter orange, hops, mineral notes. Taste comprises pine, grapefruit, hops, orange pith. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. A really tasty IPA.

Mine was from a can - pretty sure it said 6.7%, not 7.1% - and its a really swell IPA. Local hops from a prime growing region results in this wonderful bitter aftertaste. I want a case of it for fishing this summer!!!

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop and dough. The semi-dry mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of dry and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Poured out of can a hazy golden with a creamy white head. Bright citrus and pine for aroma, bitter yet creamy mouthfeel. Easy drinking IPA.
