4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 355ml bottle, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours cloudy amber with a medium sized off-white head that leaves a fine lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, apricots, orange peels and a hint of lemon. Taste is similar to the aroma. Bitter and slightly sweet with a medium body and carbonation. A great fresh and juicy IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draught at a bar in Las Vegas. Light orange/yellow colour with a white head. Aromas of fruit, and a flavour of apricots, oranges and lemons. There is also a very dry, almost astringent taste of grapefruity hops. A nicely bitter, well-made IPA in the American style.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 7% abv.
Appearance: It has a clear golden body with lots of visible carbonation. The builds up tall and thick with a just off white head. This head quickly faded out on me making next to no lacing.
Smell: There is a bid hop presence here with loads of citrusy and piney hop notes.
Taste / Palate: The first few sips I mostly got loads of pine like and some citrusy grapefruit and lemon rind flavor notes. As I drank on and the beer warms more peach like fruit notes and maltiness comes out. The finish is all hop bitterness which lingers for some time. The body and carbonation feel spot on and I can see why Sculpin IPA is so highly rated.
Notes: Classic West coast IPA!!!

Cask at Get Real NY. Dry hopped with Fuggles. Very nice fruity aroma, lots of citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit. Taste is hoppy, pine and fruit, but very smooth. Light bitterness on the finish. Very fruity, flavorful, smooth, complex, amazing IPA. Need to try this again, and soon. One of the few beers at Get Real that really stood out.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at WilliamK, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a big frothy head. Aroma is rich in tropical fruitiness; peach, passion and orange mix, also some pine and floral notes. Taste is initially sweet, but hoppy bitterness appears in the middle and the finish is typically dry and very bitter. Rich exotic fruitiness dominates the taste with at least peach, apricot and mango featuring with the usual citrus. The palate is medium bodied and slick. Overall this is a very rich and varied IPA with strong tropical fruitiness.
