3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear red, with a small white head. Aroma is sweet grapefruit, a little pine, and some caramel to round it out. Taste is pithy, but sweet, with much less caramel. $1.5/12oz

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Flying Pie: clear copper color with a nice off-white head. Interesting aroma of pepper perhaps, fruity aroma of mild grapefruit, and musty apples. Musty flavors of toasty hops with a bitter aftertaste. This one is different but nice to drink.

Bottle (22oz $5.50): Clear dark red with two finger off white head. This starts out sweet and finishes dry because of the bitterness. Good but will not be put on the "regular" list.

I really enjoyed this beer, lots of nice bitterness, a lovely amount of warm malts and a finish that was neither too dry or sweet.

Another good IPA from yet another Oregon micro-brewery. This one is named after lanterns that guide fisherman to shore on foggy winter nights.

Not a fan. I love pelican beer but this is not one I'll ever get again. I wouldn't even put it remotely in the ipa category

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from World Market, I believe.
A: Dark red with some light red highlights around the edges. Thick off-white head.
N: Peppercorn, biscuit, earth, a hint of pine, touch of grapefruit. The promised caramel does show up underneath. .Bready and a little spicy, but not very complex.
T: Moderately sweet, more on the bitter side, but this tastes rather muddled.
M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, alcohol is hidden. A touch watery, not resinous.
O: Fine, not great. Everything kind of gets thrown into the bottle, it seems, and there’s not much complexity to tease out here. Very much average.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy dark copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sort of fruit and melon. Med body. Flavor of mild, slightly roasted caramel, and hop that seems apricot/melon. It’s bitter, but balanced, not harsh. Finishes just a bit more malty than I might like it. A drink that’s laid back.

It pours a dark red with a 1 finger head of foam, and leaves some light lacing behind.
It smells of citrus hops, some pine, and a bit of a malty note here and there.
It’s kind of bitter; I get some grapefruit, a little bit of pine, but there’s a solid malt backbone in this red IPA. Just enough sweetness to balance things out. A good brew for folks who like balance. Not so much for real hop heads.
Medium body, same for the carbo. Good mouthfeel that has some bitterness in the finish.
A good brew.
