Thanks to Linus_Stick for sharing. Pour was a nice golden color with a thin white head. Aroma was filled with hops and just a hint of fruit. The taste was just excellent, clean, bitter, and filled with hops that lead you right to a crisp finish that left you wanting more. Definitely a beer I would drink on the regular were it readily available here in PA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle poured into a Becker Pint Glass.
Ar: Citrus and honey notes with a very slight pine undertone.
Ap: Pours a hazy gold with orange highlights. Pure bright white three finger head that takes several minutes to dissipate. Beautiful lacing.
T: An opening salvo of juicy orange, grapefruit, and orchid transitioning into smooth slightly sweet malt and closing with a bite of just the right amount of piney hop bitterness and returning to very slight sweet malt.
P: Highly carbonated, silky amooth, and just the right amount of body.
O: This is an extremely well-balanced and enjoyable IPA. Incredibly easy to drink and full of flavor. I’d love to have a stockpile of Sculpin in the summer. Without a doubt one of the best IPA’s I’ve had.

Someone wrote that this one could be a bit more bitter. On the contrary the reason why this is so tasty is that all of the subtle flavors are so well balanced and the bitterness is held in check. This outstanding IPA is my favorite.

Bottle shared at Tkrjukoff’s CCB-day in Sätila. Pours almost clear yellow with a medium sized off-white head. Very fresh hoppy aroma. Hoppy, citrus and pine in the taste, very fresh. Medium bitter finish. Very nice.

Draft pour at Whip In. Pours clear amber with a white finger head. Sticky white lacing all down the glass. Smells of hops and a variety of sweet fruits ad citrus akin to a great IPA. Flavor is faintly fruity with a full hop and malt balance. Light and enjoyable IPA for any time of year.

A nice light gold appearance, lighter than most IPA’s I drink. Very clean fresh pine on the nose. A considerable amount of bitterness in this one, it almost overpowers everything.

Ordered this beer from South Bay Drugs and Liquor. Thanks Joey!
This is probably my favorite IPA and I’ve only had it twice. It poured a nice thick off white head and it has a beautiful golden color. The smell is just exceptional, above and beyond any other IPA I have ever had. Smells floral, grassy, piney, grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. Just all sorts of things going on in the smell and this translates directly into the taste. It tastes nice and hoppy, similar to the smell, and it also has a nice malty sweetness then a lingering, pleasant bitterness at the end. The mouthfeel is pretty good and the drinkability is amazing. This is really the best IPA I have had to date and I will definitely try to get some more in the future. Highly recommended!
