Oakshire Watershed IPA

CIMG6660

Just picked myself up a growler of Oakshire’s Watershed IPA. Website doesn’t list the hops.

Stats:
American India Pale Ale. 7.1% ABV. Oregon.

Fairly light colored IPA. Golden with just a hint of orange. A decent bit of head with a little bit of lacing.

Smells like a northwest IPA. Hoppy, citrusy, piney. Great deal of orange with a hint of pineapple.

Nice mouthfeel. Medium body with good amount of carbonation.

Grapefruit, pine, orange. Everything that you would expect. Pretty high bitterness and very dry. Malt is barely in the flavor at all.

This is my kinda beer. It’s dry, hoppy, drinkable. It’s not for everyone and might as well be hop juice. 88 points.

    Call me crazy… is that NOT a growler bottle from Boundary Bay Brewing in Bellingham, WA in this picture behind the glass of Watershed?? I am from there, would (hopefully or i will be terribly embarrassed) recognize that font anywhere. I have spent many evenings in their brewpub enjoying salmon pizza and many an Inside Passage IPA! Ahhh… now I’m homesick thinking of my hometown beer…luckily I live in Oregon where there are many viable and often droolworthy and superior options. Thanks for the “up North” memory and smile!

    That most definitely is a Boundary Bay growler. I lived in Bham for 3 years while I was attending Western. Great brewery. Thanks for the comment, cheers!
