This is a mild IPA as judged vs P N W hoppy, IPA's. A good bet for any party, all beer drinkers will enjoy this one. I am a bit confused, generally which is more bitter? . A American IPA or a English IPA? This one leaves the bitter behind. It's a good beer and would complement any food.

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.

Mellow aroma, earthy hops with faint orange/fruit and floral notes. Pale, translucent straw color beer with good head retention. Biscuit malt flavor with piney, earthy, bitter hops and very mild fruitiness. Finishes dry with a mellow, bitter aftertaste. Very well-balanced, a friendly alternative to all the American style IPAs around here.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a half finger white head that dissipates slowely leaving light lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, light grassy hops; slightly spicy. Flavor follows with sharp, dry biscuit malt, light citrus finishing with unique dry toffee and grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Closer in style to an amped up ESB; appropriate malty base with some other interesting flavor characteristics. As an IPA, perhaps muted, but as a variation on a bitter, pleasant and interesting.
