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 dont 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.

Strykzone (6860) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2016
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 lbar. Extremt maltig i doften! Barley wine varning men bara 8% alkohol!. Smakar maltstma med mycket bla druvor. Bra beska som tar ver mer mer. Fin avslutning . Extremt maltig Dipa med hg efterbeska. Ok Dipa i PQ stil.
