Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is herbal, earthy moss, rubber, ammonia. Taste is very earthy pine, unripe fruits, random plants in the forest. This was much too fresh vegetal for me, something too spiny / harsh. blackisle (2763) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2017

Most of the Northwestern IPA's I tried in Oregon were dank and aggressive, but Pelican's umbrella is a different sort. This IPA is juicy, vibrant, and light on bitterness. It has a hazy gold color. Bright aromatics that are piney, floral, and peachy. Fruit-forward flavor profile. Berries, sweet tropical fruits, melons, stone fruit, and nectar. Crisp minerality in the finish. Its taste and feel are redolent of sauvignon blanc. This is a balanced and approachable IPA, and it's hella good with some crispy fish tacos.

Sampled on the sand at Pacific City. Lean and biscuity malts with a full, rich gooseberry ella notes stacked on it. Nice stuff.

Tap in the Cannon Beach location. Gold color, some lacing, but entirely clear. Interesting choice of hops, citrus, grass, and they seem fresh. Moderate bitterness, a little malt, and dry finish. the best of the beers at the Pelican tap room I tried, but kind of old fashioned in its execution.
