look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a fantastic golden hue, perhaps a tad darker unless you hold it up to the light then the precious metal glistens through the glass. Fluffy head that rises high and could hang with Lando Calrissian. Lie thine head o hoppy prospector.

Nose is a fresh floral and pine feeling with hints of citrus, maybe orange, but I can't place it. It's a pleasant smell that will make you smile and say ahoy there matey or matress.

Taste is wonderful. I should end it there and drink and watch the game, but i'll elaborate and say it hits every spot your tongue has reserved for a hop driven IPA. It's not super bitter if only a hint at first, until you get some on the with the rest of your drink which levels off along with the sweet bread, pine and citrus. What has been created is a well balanced beer despite the scale going in the hop favor. This liquid gold is smooth and even creamy as it's got a nice medium bodied presence. Some sweetness and kick mixed into what I can only call that hop taste, a good one.

I would say go out and get this beer, it's worth it and ever so drinkable. Indian Pelican Ale might not be the best around but you'd have to think it over twice before passing on a most excellent and execute them non bogus iron maiden brew.

3.94/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Glass: Nonic pint glass

Appearance: a clear dark yellow with a large rocky white lasting head.

Aroma: a citrusy hop aroma.

Taste: was light sweetness at first with orange citrus notes and the finish was a moderate to heavy hops bitterness.

Mouthfeel: comes into the mouth light and thin and almost seems to thicken while it sits on the tongue. carbonation was pretty average.

A good IPA, I really enjoyed the flavor and mouth feel, although I felt the aroma was lacking.
