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.

Draft at Pinthouse Pizza. Amber/golden color with white head. Aroma and flavors of pine, citrus, grapefruit, and peach. It’s quite fruity. Has a bitter, piney finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy light amber with a big frothy off white head.
Aroma has lots of pineapple, pine and grapefruit.
Taste is crisp and clean, hops play first fiddle with pineapple, pine and citrus pith, grapefruit bitterness, some pilsner malt.
Medium body, medium carbonation, dry mouth feel.
Short crisp, dry and bitter after taste.
Great balance, while the malt body isn’t that big, the hops doesn’t overpower while still being very present.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Another one of my all time favorites I had just never rated. dark gold, with one finger foamy head. Strong pungent hop aroma, with some hints of grapefruit. Very well balanced taste for a big west coast IPA, plenty of hops but also nice body and some malty characters.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
What I wish every IPA could be. Layered nose with caraway seed, pine and citrus. The palate is medium bodied, and shows excellent balance. A hit of grapefruit lingers as this is crisp and seamlessly transitions to the hoppy finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden yellow with a small head. Floral and grapefruit hops aroma. Bitter and astringent flavor, but a bit of misplaced funk. This is quite good, if overrated.
