3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale orange, clear, with a tiny film for a head. Aroma is more tangerine than herbal or grassy like an English IPA. Malty character is fitting for the style with plenty of dry hops in the finish. Just a middle of the road IPA for me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Straw orange hue with white head. Aroma is tangerine, melon, orange, ripe Mexican lime, slightly piney, caramel, straw, sugar. Taste is dry with a well rounded bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium light body and average carbonation. Overall this is a really nice IPA that is full of pronounced citrus and lemon rather than a singular bitterness. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Tons of caramel and sweet malts with a hint of citrus floral hops. Clear gold with a decent head. Lots of sweet caramel malts, more like an east coast IPA. Nice, but I would prefer more hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours three fingers of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is earthy with some lemon and mandarin notes. Pleasant.
The taste starts with a mildly sweet orange taste, then moves to a dry pine and grapefruit bitterness in the middle to end.
The texture is soft with crisp edges and moderate carbonation.
Great flavor profile and balance.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Pelican brewpub. Pours a clear golden with medium, white foam. Huge sheets of lacing. Nose is spicy, estery, herbal hops, candied lemon, coriander, lemon poundcake with icing. Taste is fresh and juicy, clean grapefruit peel bitterness, big biscuit and marmalade. Spot on for something in the Belgian IPA area. Another winner from this adept brewpub.
