3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Fred Meyer, Seattle
Hazy golden color with medium head. Nice aroma, toffee, gently toasted malts, some cereals, hay, and obviously hops, lightly musky. Nice mouthfeel, dry and lean; the malt profile is good and doesn’t cover the hop, with toffee, some cereals, hint of caramel; strong bitterness, quite piney and resiny, just lightly fruity, with some cedar peel.

Dark yellow and bright. Aroma is slightly piney with indistinct citrus. Lean malts, rich piney hops. Biscuity, then finishes with a lingering bitterness that leaves resin on the tongue.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Date: September 21, 2009
Source: Belmont Station, Portland
Appearance: clear amber, frothy beigehead, drippy lace
Aroma: dry pale malt aroma, just a hint of crystal sweetness, nice dose of citrus
Flavor: big hop flavor, good blend of citrus and earthy hops plus a big floral note, plenty of bitterness keeps it pretty dry
Overall: needs more sweetness to pull out the fruityness to go along with the hops, you’ll love this ipa if you like them dry and bitter
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 12/20
Score: ** /4

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours amber with a three finger frothy whiteish head. Aroma is pretty hoppy. Seems a citrus resin mix. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is hoppy bitter, but rather floral. Maybe they used a lot of different hops. There is a malt backbone, but it just is malt. The hops are the thing. This is really nice stuff.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The pour is sort of orange in color with a soapy white head.
S: Sort of a soapy aroma with toasted bread and sweet toffee and caramel malts. A bit of citrus and pine hop character with just a very mild herbal note to it.
T: Sweet malt all the way with quite a bit of bread, toast, and toffee. There is a fairly minimal hop flavor. Herbs and citrus peel with a little bit more soap and perhaps even some pine sol.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Soap and floor cleaner are not preferable flavors in any beer.

Draft at Upright’s tasting room, just marked as "Oakshire IPA," so I’m not sure which IPA. Going with the numbers here. This one has an extreme grass aroma and the taste was like standing in a meadow eating lemons. Good stuff.
