Pours one finger of head on a hazy copper colored body.
The aroma is dank grapefruit with a touch of bright lemon.
The taste is rich malt, caramel and some moderate lemon bitterness. Good balance.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Nicely done.

Clear dark amber with two fingers of off white head with excellent retention. good amount of lacing as head recedes.
Smell is fruity hops caramel malts somehow combine to give a fresh strawberry aroma. Some pine resin in there too.
Taste is initially lightly sweet but the hop resin aspect takes over quickly and holds until the long dry finish.
Carbonation is big enough to let you pour whatever size head you want.
Overall another big beer from Pelican Pub & Brewery.

22 oz bottle from "Roths Sunnyslope Market" in S.Salem OR. $5.99 Very attractive beer poured into my shaker pint glass, its deep amber/red hues with a large light tan/cream coloured head. The head is thick and bubbly. Quite a malt centric aroma to this one, creamy Orkney fudge and gentle citric/pine hops nice. Taste has that balance but certainly much more hop forward..hops are resinous and orange pip in flavour.still a deep chewy malt prevails..nice balanced. Mouth feel is very nice tan thick,well carbonated..just right. Very drinkable balanced "Red" IPA..could be a hoppy amber..but i liked it.

22oz : tulip

Pours a clear, dark amber red with a thick, foamy off white head, great retention and nice lacing.

Big citrusy, fruity hops with a lightly sweet, caramel malt backbone in the nose, and more of the same in the taste.

Medium body, standard carbonation.

A very well done IPA that reignites my interest in this brewery.

Picked up a 22 oz bottle at Fred Meyer wanting to try something new. This is a winter seasonal release, and I was pleasantly surprised. Pours a beautiful reddish orange with about a finger of fairly thick white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Excellent balance between the malt and hops, and the alcohol content. Although this is an IPA, it is nowhere near the 100 IBU pine cone beers that seem to be trendy right now, and that's the way I like it. Very drinkable and enjoyable. 6.4% ABV.

Enjoy by Aug 12, 2014

It pours a dark red with a 1 finger head of foam, and leaves some light lacing behind.

It smells of citrus hops, some pine, and a bit of a malty note here and there.

It's kind of bitter; I get some grapefruit, a little bit of pine, but there's a solid malt backbone in this red IPA. Just enough sweetness to balance things out. A good brew for folks who like balance. Not so much for real hop heads.

Medium body, same for the carbo. Good mouthfeel that has some bitterness in the finish.

A good brew.
