3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden orange with a nice off white head that fades and leaves good lacing in the glass. Aroma is lots of mango and apricots, a bit of caramel malt. Taste is very bright and fruity with tons of apricot and a bit of mango, bitter hops and then some sweetness then more hops cleanse the palate, good ipa but stone ipa is still way better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Almost clear golden color with a nice rocky and steady white head (good lace).
Rich tropical fruits aroma, with citrus notes (mandarin), spices (ginger) and flowers.
Intense hop flavors, big tropical goodness, high bitterness, decent sweet malts and faint alcohol notes.
Med-full body, good carbonation, long bitter finish, a bit too heavy but yummy. Cool.

NYC Trip Beer #8. Nothing like following your very first AleSmith IPA with your first Sculpin. Between the two, I far preferred the Sculpin. Pours a pale orange with a lovely white head head. Beautiful Citrus scents and flavor. Well carbonated with a crisp hop finish. Bought some to bring back to the A. Bottle - Guilty Goose - New York, NY

Bomber thanks to GorditoABD! Thanks Chris! Pours a beautiful golden honey color, with a solid two finger head. Smells like Hops on top of hops. Pure pine resin and grapefruit rind. Taste is almost chewy its so wonderful of grapefruit. Finish is bitter and citrusy..Good stuff. If California falls off into the ocean, perhaps we can at least save San Diego.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Golden orange in color. Tons of citrus and hops on the nose. Great balance between sweet fruit flavors - apricot, lemon - and hoppy bitterness. Fizzy feel on the tongue. You cannot do better for a wide release DIPA.

small can into an spig IPA glass. Pours clear golden sunset with a creamy white head. Nice aroma of orange, mandarin, apricot fruits. Very bitter and resinous in the flavour with the apricot flavour dominating, slight sweet caramel maltyness.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light golden with a lighter head but lasting ring on glass. Extremely potent floral pined hops present a marvelous bouquet to inhale. The Sturdy hop character is sublimely countered by a slightly burned and sugared backbone and fruited green apple slightly sparklingly sour echo, which gradually yeilds a lingering and lasting bittering dusty twinge tract down the center of the mouth. An outstanding brew, with an incredible aroma and impressive depth and character.
