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.

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.
