Pours a clear orange with white head. Aroma or tropical and citrus fruits and some sweet notes. Taste is a nice clean assertive bitterness throughout with a caramel backbone. Pine, grapefruit, mango, and biscuity flavors. Medium bodied. Very well done IPA.

Rating #111. Bomber. Strong floral aroma right at the pour, and after at the glass, with a faint but solid mango scent working in. Flavor is solidly floral with mango and something like orange-strawberry-pineapple juice kicking in toward the middle-end palate. Really complex brew here. There’s actually a bitter funk at the beginning that blossoms into the rest of the palate and makes the whole thing that much more lovely. Bravo Ballast Point. This is a beer to remember!

12oz bottle pour. Light golden orange with about a finger of sudsy head. Citrus aroma. Taste of grassy and citrus hops with a solid malt presence. Pretty decent amount of bitterness. Killer lacing left behind. This was good.

On tap at Duke’s, Malibu. Hot damn, this is a nice beer. Great aroma kicking my nose, nice great balance with malt. Alcohol is well hidden. I slurped two of these down in a hurry and would have had more but I was driving. Yummm0.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Man, what a great IPA. Smells like mango, tastes like grapefruit, all wrapped in a bitter hoppy shell. The malts give Sculpin the tiniest bit of sweetness on the front, but the beer truly is a showcase of hops, bitter and citric and dry as the finish turns piney and resinous. Not an IPA for the timid, this bottle does stretch the limits of the amounts of hops that can be pounded into a single India Pale Ale. But, hey, fuck the timid. Life’s too short to drink underhopped IPAs. So drink Sculpin. It’s delicious.
