3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bomber into snifter
A: Pours a nice clear golden apple color with a light peach 1.5 finger head. Great retention on this brew. An incredible net-like lace follows me down the glass.
S: Nice light citrus hops, sweet honey, floral hops as well.
T: Very sweet flowers with a light citrus hoppy note. Just a tad bitter on the backend but mellows back to a nice sweet oak.
M: Light bodied, incredibly smooth and a nice light carbonation as well. Leaves a nice sweet and bitter taste.
O: I think this was good, but the flavors and smell sort of fell flat. There was some sediment in the bottle so I plan on revisiting this when I know I’m having the freshest Sculpin I can have.

Cloudy pour. Very hoppy nose. Super frothy head dies quickly but a light layer floats ontop. Some lacing. Alcohol is not detected. Above average for this style. Aftertaste is bitter and long lasting. Bottle at the Square wine Company, Madison, Wisconsin.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Kobberfarvet amerikansk IPA med 3 cm stor offwhite skumkrone. Denne svinder til kant samt overflade. Klar/filtreret og rolig.
Humlearoma domineret af grapefrugt og harpiks. Senere fremkommer noter af appelsin.
Frisk og dyb bitterdomineret smag balanceret med mindre sødme. Malten som sætter sødmen i smagen gør øllet meget vel balanceret.
Mundfølelsen er frisk og sprød med en middel karbonering. Mellem fyldig krop og olieret konsistens. Smagen afsluttes bittert og kort.
Overall: Meget velsmagende og straight-forward IPA. Sculpin kunne jeg altid have liggende klar.
355 ml, flaske, 7.0 % ABV, BB: ikke oplyst, købt i Systembolaget ved Triangeln i Malmö.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample at Malmö beer- and whiskey festival. One of the best West-Coast IPAs i’ve tried, what sets it apart is the rare and perfect balance between demanding hops and malt-base.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From notes. First reviewed 11/25/2010. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.
Sculpin pours a slightly hazy golden color, with a huge foamy white head. Nice retention, stays with the beer the whole way, along with some sticky lace.
Great floral hoppy smell, some cooling pine, and a splash of juicy citurs as well.
The taste starts with a candy sweet bready malt, quickly taken over by the robust hop bill. Floral, pine, and apricot and mango citrus. The pine almost turns into a cool mint flavor. Finishes slightly bitter.
The simcoe hops help to provide a cooling sensation on the tongue, with the dry hopping providing a tingling sensation on the tongue. Good, crisp, slightly creamy carbonation with a slightly above medium body. Finishes pretty clean.
This is a great IPA, in pretty much every category. Hopefully these bottles will be regularly available in Chicago soon.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from CASK Pub & Kitchen earlier this year. Pours a clear amber, with a medium off white head. Grassy, piney, quite tropical, basically a tropical fruit punch with a bitter kick and slight heat at the finish

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Relatively fresh bottle with new label design, just a few weeks old. Bright gold color with very small white head and no lacing. Aroma is very citrusy and piney. Flavor is mostly citrus, with a clean bitter finish. This is so smooth and very crisp, and tastes good but its kind of boring. Price on the 6-packs are a bit high.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle poured into my snifter.
A- Body is a nearly transparent bright orange hue that pours with a nice 1-2 finger creamy white head. Head subsides quickly leaving a thick collar and very little lacing in the glass.
S-What comes through first is a perfect balance of sweet caramel malt and a blast of citrus hops. In the background is a slight spicy hop presence as well.
T- Pink grapefruit, orange and citrus upfront with a substantial caramel malt backbone. The finish is all spicy hops as a big spicy hop bitterness blends with spicy hop flavors. At first the bitterness seems almost overbearing and prickly but after a few sips the spiciness really comes through more than the bitterness.
P- Medium to high tingly carbonation and a medium-to light weight, full quite oily, smooth body.
O- This brew is pretty awesome. Brews that emphasize the citrus/spicy hop combo are hard to come by and this one does an excellent job with it. Really happy that I had the opportunity to try this beer! Too bad it is a limited release.
