4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Clear golden orange with foamy white head and some nice lacing. Fantastic aroma - citrus, pine and tropical fruit. Taste is bitter throughout with some sweetness opening up in the middle followed by a bitter dry finish that lingers and lingers. Very nicely balanced. Really enjoyed this beer, only thing that didn’t suit my taste was the heavy dryness. Mouthfeel was moderate with crisp carbonation. An excellent IPA.

Förhållandevis lättsam och snäll. Bra balans mellan fruktighet och beska. Helt klart en toppöl, även om det inte är en champ!

IPAs aren’t really my thing. This one’s good. It has a nice bitterness that’s a nicely balanced between astringency and citrusy/floral. And at 7% ABV it’s not too malty.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Maybe ts too cold, but there was not much of an aroma, but I did notice a hint of lemon peel. Definitely a good looking beer; amber body and slightly cloudy with lasting SUDS. Light on the palate. The taste is outstanding with something different than other IPA; almost a bit of smokiness to the hops. The hops are intense but not too overpowering. As far as IPAs goes, this one is up there with Bell’s Two Hearted.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear burnt amber color, moderately frothy white head. Pine, herbal, caramel malt, and perhaps a little citrus. Resinous bitterness throughout. Smooth, a bit oily, and leaves a somewhat astringent finish.

Ballast Point Sculpin is listed by many as a great beer. I am often times leery of mass approval of anything, with that in mind I gave this IPA a try. it was poured into a pint glass and did have a very pleasing light color for an IPA. The aroma was strong but not overpowering and when I took the first sip, I realized many voters are just towing the party line. I like IPAs but I get the since many of these brews are made the "drier" the better and to me that takes away from savoring the flavor. I would drink it again but I don’t consider this a fantastic brew. I prefer Ballast Point’s Wahoo White which I consider to be an excellent brew. But for the craft beer aficionado this beer would be well worth a sample beer or two to see if it is your cup of tea (so to speak)

Mango, grapefruit, kiwi, sweet resiny aroma. Cloudy honey gold with a thick foamy white head that sticks around for quite a while. Lots of grapefruit. But not so bitter that it's overpowering. This is very well balanced and very smooth. It has a crisp finish but then a bit of an after-warmth in the throat. Pretty good stuff.
