4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The citrus and tropical aromas immediately seduce you into the secluded part of the world where tourists disappear and legendary tales begin. Are you ready for adventure? Sculpin lets you know she’s not your everyday IPA as soon as you wash up on the shore. She flashes her delicate pineapples and you finally wrap your tongue around her sweet mangoes for the first time. You see little difference between the celestial bodies as both the sun and her white gold complexion refresh your soul and tingle your libido. Her hops playfully nibble and bite, but never lose sight of why you came. She wants to satisfy but she doesn’t want you to leave. Each sip is a tease that both surprisingly exceeds legend and leaves you yearning for more. You want her again and again. Her siren song calls you and you only. This is why you’re lost, sailor. It’s because you want to be.

Good ipa with malt and hops abundant. Missing something, some watery-ness but very very slight. Lemon zest with minor vegitation from hops.

From a Liquor store on Lake Mead Blvd in Vegas. Hazy yellow with great retention. Smell juicy peaches, malt, tropical fruit. Taste is like peaches and cream. No alcohol, hoppy and bitter, earthy and a bit of tea. Awesome ipa.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A-- Poured the typical IPA color, yellow gold. Lots of carbonation bubbles and beautiful head to this. Head stayed at about a solid two finger level. Well compacted, tight head to this. Just a little off white in color. Good, thick lacing on the sides of the glass.
S-- Mango, passionfruit, fresh citrus and a little bit of pine. Great nose and so full of flavors.
T-- Candied grapefruit, turns to fresh grapefruit, turns to pine and Carmel. YUM.
M-- Got how the grapefruit turns to several different flavors. Also get lemon, a bit of grass and then to bitter pine and grapefruit at the end. Long lasting pine and grapefruit flavor. Medium high carbonation and very creamy. The way the flavors change is excellent.
D-- Excellent. great beer.

Bomber. Poured deep gold with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were hop forward but not overly bitter. Lots of citrus, some pineapple, very dank and earthy hops. Enough malt to keep it from being off-balance. Medium to thick mouthfeel, but not particularly sticky or oily. A really good IPA.

Purchased in a bomber from a Las Vegas convenient store. I was super stoked. Also had on tap at Public House in the Venetian. (Notes from the bomber though)
Appearance: hazy golden orange with sticky, heavy lacing. Off-white head.
Aroma of citrus and pine hops.
Super resiney bitterness, smooth, well balanced with malt. Complex hops with grapefruit and citrus.
This beer is absolutely fantastic.

Tap at the Ginger Man, Manhattan - 29/02/12.
Pours to a slightly obscured orange/golden colour, good finger of creamy head with plenty of lacing and good retention as I drank.
Full on piney nose, grapefruit, mango a little sweetness on the nose and a touch of caramel.
Tastes allied to the nose, again with a litte sweetness and malt, not as bitter as you may expect from the aroma.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and a smooth feel/finish.
