Independent Craft Brewer Seal

Kentucky Pelican: Inspired by the mixed drink of a similar name, Kentucky Pelican takes aspects of those ingredients and turns them into a drinkable and refreshing strong ale. American strong ale aged in bourbon barrels, dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Dry Spiced with ginger and lime.

Appearance: Deep copper to amber color, off white head.

Aroma: Fresh ginger, bright lime-citrus, very subtle hint of mint.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, fully coats the palate, spec’d at 2.65 vols, alcohol content noticeable.

Flavor: Bready and slightly toasty with an earthy hop profile backed by the spice of ginger. Mild notes of bourbon, vanilla and ethanol in the finish.

Overall: Good drinkability, smooth with a slightly warming finish. The spice from the ginger and the acidity of the lime cut through the malty body to provide a refreshing take on the mule cocktail.

Specs/Ingredients: 18 Plato, 8.2% ABV, 35 IBU; NW Pale malt, Munich malt, Magnum, Fuggle, Aramis, Mandarina Bavaria hops, Ginger, and Lime.
