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.

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.

A - Pours a light tangerine hue with a 2 finger head that dissipates quickly. S - light citrus notes, hints of wheat T - starts off with a strong wheat note and moves into citrus, tangerine, grapefruit and a light bitterness. M - medium bodied with ample carbonation. D - extremely drinkable. Light yet complex with a nice bitter finish.

Pale golden pour. Bright pone and citrus nose with a lot of late hopping evident. Citrus and tropical notes. Really bright and delicious.

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.
