Oakshire releases A Life Beyond The Dream: Triple IPA

Written By Ezra Johnson-Greenough

February is unofficially Triple IPA season, Oakshire Brewing is dropping their own take “A Life Beyond the Dream” this Friday, February 19th.

A Life Beyond the Dream stands in essence of that which we believe. A willful call to that of our collective consciousness. Each of us started with a dream; a place; a ground point for our future. We have taken that dream and crossed the proverbial threshold of the beyond to make those dreams mean something. Each day we traverse the line of the dream and reality, striving to progress further and further; attempting to reach the seemingly unreachable. The forever path that we have set ourselves upon.

A Life Beyond The Dream is a Triple India Pale Ale inspired by the stories that made us and the dreams that inspire us; Oakshire crafted this beer to showcase newly processed 2020 hop harvest varietals as well as new school hop products to allow us to take the hopping rate to nearly 15#/bbl. Built upon a base of Citra and Mosaic Incognito oil from Barth-Hass and Strata hop pellets, Oakshire takes the beer to the next level with a massive dry-hop consisting of Columbus and Simcoe Cryo-hops and Strata, Citra, and Mosaic hop pellets.

Pouring with a beautifully long-lasting white head, the nose explodes with effervescent notes of dank herb, mixed-berry CBD gummies, and a tropical fruit medley. A balanced bitterness welcomes the palate rounding to sticky hop resin, with waves of nectarine, passionfruit, lychee, and cloudberries. The mouthfeel is drying yet resides with a full body making A Life The Dream dangerously drinkable at 10.5% ABV.

Beer Release 2/19/21 exclusively at Oakshire Brewing Public House in Eugene, OR and Oakshire Beer Hall in PDX.
