3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a can. Looks and smells great. Seems to be sculpins hoppier, more bitter brother. When it comes to IPA's I prefer a little more balance between malt and hops but I can deal. Solid IPA, particularly for the hop heads.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: piney, malty, slightly more toasty than I would expect of an IPA
Appearance: perfect pale amber with white lacy head that lingers throughout the entire experience
Taste: slight bitterness upfront with an even more bitter finish, and a slightly acidic finish
Mouthfeel: very light bodied, slightly sticky feel
Overall it's a good ipa, but I don't get as much grapefruit that is in other reviews. I get the bitterness of a grapefruit, but not the citrus flavors

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle: no freshness date that I can see
Appearance: Very transparent dark copper body that looks beautiful under a very thick off-white head.
Aroma: I get a very strong orange zest aroma. There’s a bit of a pine aroma in there as well. It smells very fresh.
Taste: I get a light bitter grapefruit flavor, and the aftertaste has a grain flavor.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is off-dry with a good amount of bitterness that doesn’t linger.
Overall: It was a really good IPA. I live on the East Coast and this is a beer brewed in CA, and it tastes very fresh. I am impressed by that. I would buy it again
