Best before 7/18/2013.

A: This is a beautiful crystal clear dark amber body that has a hefty stream of carbonation rising to the very thin light tan, but creamy, head. Even despite a hard pour not much head came.

S: This has a wonderful tropical aroma of pineapple, oranges, and grapefruit, mostly sweet with a moderate hop bite presence.

T: This is a well-balanced IIPA with a semi-sweet malt base that slowly rolls out the hop profiles through the sip. Lotís of tropical flavors of pineapple and mango through to a mildly bitter grapefruit finish. This is very good.

M: Smooth medium body with light carbonation.

O: This is a solid IIPA, nothing stands out, but itís done really well. This definitely wasnít worth $9 for a bomber, but Iím glad to have tried it.

3 day old bottle, thanks Bruery Provisions! Pours a deep orange with mediocre white head. Aroma is slight hoppiness but mostly an odd sweet character that is not off putting but not doing much for this beer. Taste is overly hop bitter, hot alcohol on the throat and definite notes of a 10% DIPA. As it warms the pine notes in the hops come out. Overall, not overly impressed beyond the buzz. Was expecting more based on how rad Sculpin is.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2012
From a bottle with both Vinny and Tom recently. Pours light, playful golden with crisp bubbles and a nice fluff of white head. Aroma of Granny Smith apples, light caramel, and some subtle orange and lemon rind hints. Medium bodied with a rather sweet, somewhat cloying palate. Taste is very much like tart Granny Smith apple slices with some cinnamon or other kind of spice on it. Finish is a little sweeter than Iíd like it to be. Not bad, but Iím not a big fan of this guy.

PhillyCraft (5489) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Fresh bottle from Beer Heaven, split with Pat. Pours a ultra murky and golden orange with creamy white head with nice lacing streaks. Aromas of tangerine, pineapple, caramel, resin, wood. Taste is very citrusy with tons of rich pine and wood notes. Smaller notes of orange peel tang, and spicy malts. Bitter finish. Smooth and creamy double ipa, medium bodied.

crossovert (11015) - Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2012
BB 06/22/13. It pours a semi-hazy goldish amber with a white head that leaves some good lacing. The smell is awesome. There is a rich maltiness running through it that is the most up-front characteristic but underneath is just a tsunami of hoppiness. flowers, herbs, citrus, tropical, its all there. Flavor is great too. Sharp bitterness. Again herbal, flowery, citrusy, tropical, a bit of pine. Malt doesnít overpower. Awesome! Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-25-2012 01:46:46

Extremely piney smell, very bitter acquired taste, and very delicious. I regret not stopping by the brewery in SD last time I was down there.

Tpine and citrus notes, and big carame malt and bitter. M: full body medium, high carbonation dry finish. O: This got nothing sculpin.

deyholla (9921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle thanks to my Secret Santa! Pours a near clear golden orange with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a light pine note with some grapefruit with a hint of backing sweet grain. Flavor has a nice combo of pine and grapefruit tonight with a sweet grain backbone.

Clear golden pour with no head. Huge resiny skunky hop nose. Resiny throughout. Bitter yet smooth. Amazingly masks the nearly 10% abv. Nice (but dangerous :-)
