COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Grapefruit Sculpin is the latest take on our signature IPA. Some may say there are few ways to improve Sculpin’s unique flavor, but the tart freshness of grapefruit perfectly complements our IPA’s citrusy hop character. Grapefruit’s a winter fruit, but this easy-drinking ale tastes like summer.

KeefOz (1466) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2016
Poured a crystal clear mid-amber with 5mm of creamy dense foam that retained well and laced well as rings. Carbonation moderate to high with medium sized bubbles. Aroma of nice strong hops - lots of fresh grapefruit plus other sweet fruits (citrus, mango, peach) with hints of pine. Taste is strongly of fresh grapefruit and other fruits (possibly other citrus) as sweetness comes through; moderate bitterness; alcohol well hidden; well balanced; aroma and taste compliment each other. Medium body. Crisp, fresh and dry with sweet fruits and grapefruit on the finish. A tasty IPA.

Flaske. Samme sted som som Stone men ikke nær så god. Igen perfekt til koreansk mad. Grapefrugten er meget tydelig men komplimentere øllen godt. Super lækker øl og dejlig dag.

BenDover (222) - Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow, huge amount of carbonation, with a solid inch of very dense white meringue-like foam. Aroma is floral and grapefruit. Taste is sweet, tart, and bitter all at once -- like eating a grapefruit with sugar sprinkled on top.Very bitter on the finish. Great stuff.

TedE (850) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2016
355ml bottle into tulip. Clean fresh grapefruit nose, not tart more sweet like tangerine. Clear golden beer with solid white head. Full body, oily texture. Finish is cleansing and fruity. Not as bitter as I expected it to be. Beautifully balanced, amazingly easy drinking for 7%! Would make a great breakfast beer (if it wasn’t for the ABV!)

Fisler (363) - Bamberg, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2016
Optisch wie ein Weizen, kein Schaum, behäbige Perlen, in der Nase Fruchtig, Geapefruit, Honig. Im Trunk fruchtig, cremig, mittig alkoholisch, dann bittersüß, das sich bis in den Abgang zieht. Sehr schöne Geschmackskomposition. Für 7% wirklich gut trinkbar.

ALLOVATE (2842) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2016
So, on the back of the trend of adding citrus flavours to an already citric hopped beer (?), I thought I’d jump on this gravy train still flying off the shelves here in Oz. Into a snifter, chilled. Bright, orange gold with fine carbonation and a frothy white crown. Nose is of very clean, ripe grapefruit and orange pulp atop a musk-like perfume and hints of whizz-fizz™ powder and strawberry hubba-bubba™. Lightweight but rounded with a little burn on end by the alcohol and peaking hop bitterness. Heavy citrus offers it a rough edge amongst a backbone of candied fruit like the aroma. Light pine but little malt. Strawberry, tangelo and orange with ample grapefruit in the finish where it drops off quickly. Carbonation is spritzy allowing it to bounce across the palate. The perfume builds but is is balanced well between supple fruit sweetness and tang and pungent grapefruit tartness and bitterness. This is not an in your face beer but it is tasty and highly sessionable even at 7.0% ABV. I love the original Sculpin and personally think this sits a little in its shadow rather than beyond it. (35,5cL, no date stamp, Dan Murphy’s, Canning)

BiddleBrau (1128) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Orange gold hue with nice dense white head. Citrus nose, some sweetness. Full mouth feel and definite grapefruit flavor. Not particularly subtle but not overwhelming either. Hops are prominent which also balances the mall and grapefruit flavor. Another fine product from the boys in San Diego

BP has really nailed it with this sculpin series as long as you don’t mind the fairly high ABV. The addition of grapefruit just doubles down on the hop characteristics already there, while not going overboard. Delicious.

I love grapefruit kick in my IPA, but this one is outstanding! Fresh, all the way grapefruity, never stepping down, some passion fruit, pine. Decent malty background. Moderate bitterness with light sweetness Balanced and super enjoyable
