Pelican Brewing’s new Umbrella IPA is the brewery’s 3rd IPA in its ineup as a new spring seasonal along with year-rounds Silverspot IPA and Imperial Pelican Ale. The new single-hop IPA marks the unseasonably nice weather Oregon has been having. As Pelican says, “reaching for an umbrella this season will not be the first choice for keeping dry. While being known as one of the wettest states in the union, Oregon’s population in general has an umbrella aversion. We’d rather be caught in a spring downpour holding a bottle of fresh and delicious India Pale Ale.”
Pelican Brewing Company in Pacific City, Oregon, call the Umbrella a New-World IPA with a clean, crisp, hop-forward character “that resonates with the newness of springtime but adds a layer of warmth with a nice 7.4% alcohol by volume.”
Umbrella India Pale Ale is brewed exclusively with Australian grown Ella Hops. The use of Ella hops offers an aroma that is filled with gooseberry and bright fruit. The fresh and zippy Ella hops are nicely balanced by a clean and light pale malt character. This single-hop IPA is the newest addition to the Pelican Seasonal line-up and is available now through the end of June in 12 oz. 6-packs, 22 oz. bottles, and draft.
