3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a semi murky gold with a decent bubbly off white head. Aroma is floral and fruity. Some orange citrus, also some mango or other tropical fruit. Taste is complex. Some orange and other fruits. Some moderate hop bitter kicks in, but there’s some faint sweetness there too. Long full finish with pleasant nasal linger. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey, deep golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, long lasting, fairly lacing, white head. Super clean, citrusy hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, lemon, pineapple. Crisp, bitter and citrusy hoppy aroma, more jelly bear-like than caramel malty background, notes of grapefruit, pineapple, orange, tangerine; some pine and sweaty resin in the deposit containing last sip (yeah!). A bit more "dirty" than the Grapefruit version, but still too clean for me (cf. Kernel as counterexample). Still a very good one, of course.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy amber with small beige head. Tremendous and huge aroma - sweetened grapefruit, strong malt, mango, passionfruit, paw paw/papaya. The taste is also huge, non-subtle, but awesome, with the same flavours that the smell assaults with. Light in body and ridiculously drinkable. In no way understated but an artful hop punch in the face.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz tap pour in The Goat Hill Tavern, Costa Mesa (Orange County) on 11th May 2015. Orange body, white topping. How do you like your hops? If the answer is by the hand full: this is a beer for you. No subtly here, just a very hoppy IPA with plenty of bitterness. I had the Sculpin Grapefruit next, no real citrus feel to this, the original version compared to the Grapefruit option.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Can, from Vermont trip shopping. Clear medium yellow, small bubbly white head. Mango, apricot, citrus aroma - really good and clean. Clean, very flavourful taste - just the right amount of malt, on the light side, and a boatload of well added hops - lots more of that tropical fruit bursting at the seams taste, but with nothing harsh about it. Light and crisp. Pretty much a perfect IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from SB. Very good IPA, actually one of the first craft beers I bought, now finally in the ordinary stock of SB. Very good indeed, but the competition has become stronger so Sculpin may no longer be the best IPA available, but still one of the best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle into a stella glass
bottled on the 100th day 2015 so 03/15 ish
A: hard pour yeilds a lovely pale orange with alsi attractive tan head. Great clarity. Good retention.
S: Grapefruit and pine needles. A bit of malt sweetness barely detectable.
T: More grapefruit than pine in taste but otherwise follows the nose. Fairly juicy and overall pretty tasty. Not boozy tasting.
M: Light for its strength and well carbonated to make a refreshing drink.
O: A pretty good IPA I guess but no way I’ll pay $14/6 for it. Stronger than I prefer as well but that’s another story. Ripped off my local HT with a 10 dollar mix-6. Way overpirced.
