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.

Good example of the fruit IPA movement. It seems like ballast point does the best blending hops and fruits without being too sweet.

YigSvartka (287) - Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Translucent cloudy orange and gold hue with a quickly dissipating white head. Pleasantly pungent aroma with notes of orange, lemon, hops, caramel, and grass. Mid bodied and rather smooth. A comforting malty caramel backbone is present throughout with an initial taste of grapefruit, orange, and lemon, finishing with a hoppy grapefruit flavour that lingers, but most certainly does not dominate. Lack of vigorous hops may be due to age, but very nice otherwise.

Sparf (234) - Östersund, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2016
Mycket fin doftkomposition med distinkta dofter av kåda, tall, grapefrukt samt en sött blommig doft av fruktsallad. Gyllene, tämligen ljus bärnstensfärg och ett bra skum som halveras ganska snabbt men med bra lämningar. Det första smakintrycket är en torr tropisk fruktblandning. Därefter växer grapefrukten fram och tar över tillsammans med en välavvägd beska. Eftersmaken är exakt som grapefruktens egna eftersmak parad med en djupare humlebeska. Elegant nedtonad kolsyra, halvfyllig kropp och en torr karaktär.

Una IPA de color ámbar anaranjado con espuma media alta cremosa. Su aroma a durazno, Malta caramelo, Pino, pomelo y lúpulo. Su sabor es a pomelo, durazno y Damasco, con un amargor permanente que se equilibra con los sabores frutales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frothmeister (726) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a creme coloured head. On the nose, peach, orange sherbet, grapefruit, and lighter resinous notes. Taste wise, there is a very prominent, and genuinely welcome flavour that reminds me of a VERY specific "Orange Pineapple" ice cream that used to exist when I was younger, with grapefruit, almost candy peach notes, and some light resinous hops that opens up into heavier bitterness of the resinous, Fisherman’s Friends variety, hard water notes,and lots bitter grapefruit pith in the very long finish. It’s pretty darn solid.

Can. Aroma of deliciously fresh hop, pineapple, mango, tropical fruit and grapefruit. Taste has fresh hops, mild pine, grapefruit, caramel and a bitter finish. Very nice.
