Judge's Review: 90 Rating - Oh, Sure by Land-Grant Brewing Co.

United States
Oh, Sure, Land-Grant Brewing Co.

Land-Grant Brewing Company is excited to announce new mainstay IPA, Oh, Sure, amid a flurry of new, limited, and experimental brews. With a recipe that has been constantly refined over the past two years, this IPA is drenched in hop flavor with a name and can design that reflects Land-Grant's DIY, can-do ethos—It's an IPA poised to carry the baton for the brewery in 2020 and beyond.
“We have been tinkering with this recipe for 2 years now, and Oh, Sure has become the IPA that embodies our customer's favorite pieces from each IPA we’ve brewed” ​says Land-Grant Brewing’s Head Brewer, Dan Shaffer. “Over multiple iterations, we pulled some levers back (overripe tropical fruit, honey sweetness) and pushed others up (resin, citrus) until we had something that was intensely hoppy, but drinkable enough to keep you reaching for another. In the end Eureka, Comet, Simcoe, and Cashmere hops provided a very balanced Tangerine, Mango, and Hard Candy flavor profile. We're very satisfied with the results, and think it was worth all the (delicious) hassle.”
Oh, Sure will be assuming a year-round spot on the shelves of Ohio craft beer retailers and will be readily available throughout the Columbus Market. “With Dan taking the helm over a year ago and pushing our creative boundaries as a brewery and implementing new ideas, techniques and recipes with-in the brew team, it was time to put those ideas and techniques into a new IPA” says Land-Grant Brewing’s President and Co-Founder, Adam Benner. “We really listened to our customers on this recipe and have created an amazingly balanced, and enjoyable IPA that we’re certain will become your new favorite beer.” Remember, the next time someone asks if you want a beer, all you have to say is...Oh, Sure!

Oh, Sure by Land-Grant Brewing Co. is an American IPA and is being evaluated as an American IPA (category 21A from the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). American IPAs are hop-forward beers typically expressing American or new world hop characters that are most typically citrusy, piney or resiny in character. Oh, Sure is hopped with Eureka, Comet, Simcoe and Cashmere hops.

Oh, Sure pours golden in color with a very slight haze and a big off-white head. The aroma is of moderately strong hops with notes of tangerine, pine and passion fruit over a hint of malt. The flavor is similarly hoppy with citrus, pine and mango flavors over a hint of malt. The beer finishes with moderately light bitterness and moderate citrusy and herbal hops with a lighter tropical fruit note.

Oh, Sure is a solid American IPA with a blend of traditional and new world hop flavors. The hop flavors are well-balanced and change a bit from the aroma, flavor and finish. As the beer warms, a note of honeydew melon can be detected. Hopheads will enjoy this one.
