Really liked this light IPA. Had it on tap at the brewery. It has a nice tangerine theme running through your sips. Not very hoppy but I like it that way. Smooth with a finished taste the the other Pelicans.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from CoOp Bellingham, WA, bottled 101612, 3 months ago
Hazy amber color, bright, with medium sized compact head. Gentle hop and fruit aroma, some zesty lemon.
Good body strength, lean mouthfeel; fresh malt and toffee flavor, with good hopping and bitterness level, also nice fruity character (peachy), and some interesting zesty hop resin in the final.
Luckily not so English as claimed on the label.
Not explosive, just very well balanced and fresh. Excellent.

Pours with a nice foamy head that retains well. Nice aromas of floral hops and grapefruit. Pretty balanced flavor of caramel and hippy bitterness. Very nice, full mouthful, excellent

This is decent. Not overly bitter, but it has a good hop flavor that would really be quite sessionable, but not in the terrible session ipa way. I mean, if you want a light ipa, just drink a pale! Anyways, this is good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange-gold with big, foamy white head / Subdued, musty nose of dried citrus, resin, and clothes closet / Medium body, lively carbonation, dry, a touch thin, with otherwise good balance and bitterness / Mellow but elegant flavors of tangerine peel, soap, resin, herb, and straw / Once I got over the notion that this isn’t an American-style pale, I really enjoyed it.

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.

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.
