Bottled 6/11/13. Bomber served chilled into a pint glass.

Silverspot is a pale amber color with good clarity. The head is thick and white and leaves a little lace as it settles.

Aroma is hoppy with a mix of citrusy west coast hop varieties.

Flavor is balanced and enjoyable with a tropical fruit sweetness up front, moderately bitter with orange citrus. Calling it an English IPA doesn't seem appropriate but it's tasty.

Mouthfeel is medium light in body, nicely carbonated and balanced.

Overall a tasty IPA.

Beautiful amber color with a coppery tinge in the Affligem chalice. The foam is so lacy, and froths up modestly, but provides the nicest sudsy mouthfeel. Aroma is lemony with some orange and a grainy muffin nose.

The flavor is malt with a good caramel taste and edged with the hoppy aromatics. Some bitterness that allows for a friendly bite and a warm taste of yellow cake and filberts. The bready malt is nicely balanced by the citrusy hops. Some lemon and English muffin with a hint of passion fruit.

This is a really drinkable and user-friendly IPA. It's mildly hopped compared to the typical American IPAs, but full of flavor. I think we need more of these English-style hoppy brews and I'm grateful to Pelican for this well-made version. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Central Market - Shoreline in north Seattle.

I bought a bottle of Pelican Silverspot IPA in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a shiny gold color, crystal clear, with a frothy white head. It has an effervescent appearance with many bubbles rising in the glass.

Smell is a sweet grain aroma, with a hint of mild fruit scents.

Taste is a sweet bread and citrus flavor, with a wet bitter-sweet finish.

Mouthfeel is zesty, crisp and clean.

Overall a very good IPA. The mouthfeel is exceptionally light and clean.
