Pelican's press release for this beer boasts a "blend of Sterling, Fuggle and Meridian hops, focusing on herbal, floral, spicy and tangerine-like characters." It's a unique hop profile that I find interesting and enjoyable. I bought a half-growler of it after tasting 3 other IPAs on tap. Pelican tends to lean heavily on the citrusy hops for their IPAs so it was refreshing to have one that doesn't. There is a bit more of a malt backbone in this one as well, but one that doesn't make it too sweet, heavy, or nutty. This may be my favorite Pelican brew, and Pelican makes some good brews! I'll have this one again.

Very light and drinkable for an IPA, but complex and refreshing...Excellent on a summer day at the beach!

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, floral, earth, and spicy hop aromas. Taste is much the same with burnt grain, earth, and spicy hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with lots of earthy and spicy hop characteristics.

Serving type: bottle.

Excellent color and clarity with fluffy white head that lingers into a thin layer. Hoppy body and nice refreshingly dry finish. Nice IPA

Had from 22oz bomber purchase at 7-11 in SE Portland. Bottled on: 06/05/2015

Sports a light amber/copper/ golden orange color with a boisterous creamy white head. It sticks around for a good amount of time before dissipating into an attractive creamy white lacing.

Malty aromas of marmalade, citrus peel, tangerine, bran flakes, cranberry-orange scones, and orange-scented cake icing.

Medium-bodied, good carbonation, some malty sweetness in the mid-palate and a pleasantly subdued finish of tangerine peel, caramel malts, and spicy and herbal hops.

5/27...pours rusty orange, brightly colored, high white foam. Toffee malty pine nose. Faint. Light malt taste, heavy bitter, peppery. Lasts. Punchy. Malt folded around but all subdued to the hop. Quite good.

I liked this quite a bit more than the Imperial, which was very surprising to me. Very nice IPA, and more American than English to me.

A English style balanced IPA. Easy on the pallet and good with food.
