I’ve wanted to try this for quite awhile. It did not disappoint. Pours clear copper with a pure white head. The nose is rich with pine and muted citrus. Hops certainly carry the show here, but I get just enough malt. Bold bitterness yet easily drinkable as far as I am concerned. Dry finish. Man, I like this a lot.

Serving: from bottle--purchased at Pelican Brewing Company. Aroma: light pine hops. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, medium-amber body. Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and moderately bitter, grapefruit finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: very good but too bitter for my tastes.

Bottle from The Wine Emporium 220916. If there is a more picturesque setting for a brewery than where Pelican Pub and Brewery is located I don’t know where it would be. It is on my bucket list to visit this brewery and with them producing great beers like this hopefully it will be sooner rather than later. Old school IPA with hops doing all the heavy lifting. Bursting with citrus and pine aromas and a full bodied beer in the mouth.

Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Copper hued and semi clear. An off white fluffy head leaves powdery lacing. Aroma is pine and tangerine and it is fairly robust. I also taste pine. My taste buds are pine blind so there must be a lot of pine! That and tangerine dominate. Some yeast, too. Dangerous stuff! Very tasty and very easy to drink. With a high ABV that makes for trouble!

Bryggarnas ölbar. Extremt maltig i doften! Barley wine varning men bara 8% alkohol!. Smakar maltsötma med mycket blåa druvor. Bra beska som tar över mer å mer. Fin avslutning . Extremt maltig Dipa med hög efterbeska. Ok Dipa i PQ stil.

Pours a clear deep golden with a clumping off white head. Sugary, medium toast malt nose with a mildly spicy hop character. Flavors are representative of the bouquet. Mouthfeel is soft and full.

Brentv (686) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2016
From bomber. Copper pour with a one-finger whitish head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste of biscuit, malts. Bitter, nice sweetness and malty flavors. Medium full mouthfeel.
