COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drink a beer, save a butterfly!

Silverspot IPA holds a permanent slot in the Pelican lineup with its brilliant gold color and assertively complex hop aroma. Brew Master Darron Welch selected the blend of Sterling, Fuggle and Meridian hops, focusing on herbal, floral, spicy and tangerine-like characters to create this highly drinkable 6% abv English-Style IPA.

Silverspot IPA celebrates the Oregon Silverspot butterfly which once flourished in coastal grasslands from Washington to California. Due to habitat loss, this threatened butterfly is now found only in a handful of protected areas. The Oregon Coast is home to most of these sites including nearby Mt. Hebo and Cascade Head, which can be seen from the patio of the Pelican Pub & Brewery. Oregon Silverspot butterflies depend on a unique ecosystem of coastal grasslands, with caterpillars feeding on violet leaves and butterflies drinking the nectar of flowering plants. A collaborative habitat restoration and reintroduction program is helping to increase this butterfly population. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer will help fund conservation efforts for the Oregon Silverspot Butterfly.

Had as part of a flight, enjoyed it, but the glass had that sterilized dishwasher taste which affected flavour and nose.

Fantomasus (287) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Cloudy dark gold (poor lighting) with a flimsy white head. Fresh aromas: caramel, resin, grass, dough, cheese, and some alcohol. Decently balanced flavor with a nod to bitter, Finish is more of the same. Itís good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and bitter hops, pale and caramel malts, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best IPA but not awful.

fiveacestx (807) - Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at Yardhouse Linq in Las Vegas. Kind of a dark pour that lightens after a minute. Not the hoppy citrus taste that I read about before I ordered it but it does seems to have a light orange citrus taste to it. Just not hoppy. Some orange peel zest in there as well. Light to medium body. Not bitter.

Thanks James! Pours a light amber with a tan head. The smell is earthy malt with some citrus. Taste follows smell with grapefruit and dryness on the end. Light+ with average carbonation.

Rangi (643) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 11, 2015
Poors a clear light amber out the bottle, nice thin lingering head. Aroma is very slight fruity hops, smells sweet. Taste is a good bitterness, soft and again lingering and dry. Tasty sessionable kind of Ipa nothing to over the top aroma and flavour wise but good lingering bitterness.
