4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The first thing I noticed as I opened the can was a delightful aroma of citrus, grapefruit,and piney hops. The taste starts with bitter hops and citrus, followed by a spicey cracker taste, which then ends with a bitter grapefruit. Another thing to note is the effervescent tingle that follows behind the flavor of each sip. All these experiences in each tasting compel you to want to have another sip immediately.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Near clear straw colour pour. Small lasting light beige head. Sadly it is clear right away that this is an old bottle.. I can see that this was great once but it has become a malty Sculpin Iím afraid... I get some fruity hops on the nose but a pretty malty base on the palate. Potentially a much higher rating but have to settle for 3.8 now. Iíll be back. I hope.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2015 Deep golden pour with frothy head, Iíve read a lot of mention that the hops deteriorate quickly in this one, so Iíll need to revisit. Initial impression was nonplussed. Hops had a slightly skunky aroma amonst citruses which followed into the flavor. Maybe just not my style (west coast) as there are more strongly hopped IPAs out there that I love.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark yellow with medium head, leaving a nice lacing on glass. Aroma: white tropical fruit, mango, peach, some pine tree. Nice intense and complex aroma. Taste: citrus fruit mixed with very pleasant bitterness, exposing the hoppy crisp thanks to a relatively low body. Nice, balanced palate. ABV well hidden. Complex but at the same time very drinkable. Thatís what an IPA should be.

Damn good IPA. Reminds me of the Smutty Nose IPA, which I absolutely loved when I lived in New Hampshire. Strong hops, citrus, floral and pine aromas and flavors, which equals a fabulous brew.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Slightly cloudy, more towards golden than orange, with a 1 finger white crown that shows some retention and lacing. This looks like my kind of IPA!
Smell: Not the most pungent IPA, but still a fairly impressive array of grapefruit citrus notes and floral hop notes over a pale malt.
Taste: Grapefruit and a slight pine note coupled with grass. Nice amount of hop bitterness without much astringency!
Mouthfeel: Iím not sure on this one. Itís a touch chewy, seems a touch undercarbonated, but is fairly spot on.
Drinkability: Fantastic for a brew with so much hop goodness.
Serving type: bottle

Glad sculpin is hitting a wider distribution network. Pours a see through golden orange with a lacing thin white head. Aromas of huge citrus, lemon, apricot, slight grass. Similar flavors with almost a bubblegum finish. Hoppy with a dry finish. Excellent ipa.

On tap at the Linkery, Sweet and bitter with lots of citrus and slight pine. It has a caramel/honey backbone that comes with a hearty dose of malts to balance the big hop kick. Very clean and fresh, its actually between a double and a regular IPA. Very tasty a fruity finish.
