Oakes (15522) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Amber with a bubbly head, earthy old school cascade nose. Has a similar palate, balancing chewy crystal malt character with the earthy cascade notes. Off-dry finish. A little too old fashioned, but very well made.

This is a really fruity IPA. It is orange amber with a small head. The nose has a cotton candy like fruity sweetness as does flavor. Not bad.
