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.

Bottle. Amber, small off-white head. Aroma malts, citruses, hops. Taste first sweet, tropical fruits mix, then turning into a nice long happy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange beer with a medium foamy white head that is actually pretty dense. Citrusy nose with grapefruit, orange, peach, and pear. Flavor has a bracing hop bite with some bright fruit notes reminiscent of the nose with the addition of some pine resin and pith, but overall it’s not really that bitter for an IPA. I would have liked a little more prominent malt profile to balance it out a bit. Still, it’s a refreshing, drinkable beer that is certainly worth your time.

Pours a bright golden hue almost resembling a lager. Aroma is unique. I get lemon, melons, and a decent amount of booziness. It smells really fresh. The body on this beer is very light making it dangerously drinkable. Tropical citrus notes and a crisp finish with warming alcohol all the way through. Similar style to Pliny yet its own entity, really enjoyable and fresh.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2015 Deep golden pour with frothy head, I’ve read a lot of mention that the hops deteriorate quickly in this one, so I’ll 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 This coulda been a contender, if not for the onions. Awfully nice citrus and perfume on the nose, and then onion. No one else will really notice, but it’s there. Otherwise, excellent. Re-rate: The onions are milder this time. But I still don’t understand the hype. I like their Big Eye better.
