22oz : tulip
from notes.

Clear, bright, golden copper with foamy, bubbly off white head some lacing

Fruity, sweet citric and floral notes, a unique hop profile. Mild, biscuit malt backing.

Medium- body with average carb.

A well done English IPA. a little bit more hoppy than I'd expect for the style, but still appropriate.

Pours a nice golden color with a fast receding white head.

Smells like dank hops and fresh biscuits. A little more pine like than fruity. Smells kinda like some good weed.

Taste is quite smooth and delicious. Bitterness is minimum, and there is a bread like quality that gives this IPA a nice malty richness.

Feel is about average. Nothing to rave about

Overall this is much more of an introductory IPA than say Torpedo. Nice balance of flavor.

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.
