Clear mid gold pour big head that stays. Aroma of big rich British malt, tangerine, slight peach. Tastes tobacco, moderate to high bitter. Not much aroma. Sorta gets stuck in no mans land between american ipa and british pale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle served in a cheater pint. Pours dark golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma is mild nutty caramel malt, only light hops. Taste is oaky lighter caramel malt, again hops are quite light. Well balanced beer, and works well as an ’English’ IPA, but comes up well short in the hop department for a NW IPA. Nice as a pale though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Clear golden with a fluffy off white head.
N: Oranges, cracker, biscuit, pine, touch of pineapple. Fruit syrup, honey, lemon.
T: Medium level of sweetness. Bitterness on the back of the throat.
M: Alcohol burn in a beer this small? What is this? Stone? Medium body.
O: Some fruit loop in an IPA. Actually pretty nice if you like citrusy IPAs, as I do. Pelican does this style pretty well.

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.
