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.

12 oz. can pours a clear golden orange color with medium off-white head. Aroma is lively and full of citrus hops, especially grapefruit, with some candy and a bit of pine. Taste is sweet citrus with a bitter finish. Body is medium with noticeable carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. This is a a real treat, which I’ll gladly try again. Too pricey for an every day IPA, but worth it when you want soething that stands above the crowd.

Citrus aroma explodes out of the can also with a faint sweetness for good balance. Prefer the original Sculpin but this is still enjoyable.

Syzzer (623) - Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Beer is transparent, dark yellow in color, med carbonation, moderately sticky white head that keeps well. The smell is strong hops and grapefruit but flavor is musty with bitterness (moderate) with interesting sweet candy note. Pretty good IPA. 6.5 BD

Finesse. Such a beautiful balance between grapefruit and fruity sweetness. Bitter and resinous with a crisp, clinging bitterness. Pours a bright orange with a thick off white head; tons of lacing. The nose is grapefruit, zest, light honeyed malts. A well done brew.

355ml brown bottle. Brilliant gold colour, clear. Fat white head with great retention. Aroma has grapefruit and some malty sweetness. Taste has a sweet malty start with lots of grapefruit peel character. Bitter finish with long grape fruity aftertaste. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Awesome stuff, very glad to try this, but certainly out of my price range for a repeat purchase.

SlackerMads (2222) - DENMARK - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden with a medium sized off white head. Nose has lots of grapefruit, some floral notes. Grapefruit also dominates the flavour heavily again with some flowers, hay, bread. Medium body, filling sweetness, long bitter finish with some acidity also. Not bad, but one tracked stuff that doesn’t get me too exited.
