Pelican Brewing Company’s “RED LANTERN IPA” (a review)
New Beer Review Pelican Brewing Company’s RED LANTERN IPA
(Red India Pale Ale, Oregon, Coast) 1/17/15 – review by James Fedewa
Very full and hoppy aroma that smells like a little slice of hop heaven, which got me a little excited about this new IPA. Great deep bronze tone with nice full head. The first gulp grabs all the true and initial IPA features, but waiting for a hoppy after bite, it finished with a smooth maltiness, which was a little surprising. It’s piney smells were only at the front end of this IPA and it smooths out considerably. The end smoothness made me think that this beer lacks high ABV (right at 6.4), so it finishes very light. Maybe it’s a sessions IPA, so l should be drinking a few more of these, right now…
B++ (it would’ve gotten an A if there was a little more bitter hoppiness at the end) Very good-lite IPA…
**I typically write my beer reviews on an APP called Pintley but this beer wasn’t on it. And I haven’t been keeping up with either my football or beer reviews because of starting a new job last month. Once the new job starts rolling and I start using public transportation, I can start writing more… Granted, American Idol is starting, which my wife loves, so I’ll be writing about football and beers a little more too (as I’m not a big fan of Idol).
