Very solid IPA golden slightly cloudy appearance, thumbs width head at pour, tastes of slight hops and citrus which comes off as a grapefruit flavor but doesn’t overpower like some I’ve had with that grapefruit taste.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the cleanest IPA’s on the market. Bottle pours a white fluffy head that sticks around for a bit, and laces well. The flavor is citrus fruit followed with a crisp hop finish. For a 7% ABV IPA this beer drinks like a session beer. It has great drinkability and will kick your d!#k in the dirt if you drink too many. Believe the hype and go buy a six pack.

Near perfect beer. Nose is super citrusy, grapefruit and some sweeter orange too. Taste is citrus hops, a touch of bitter peel, and more of a malt backbone than I expected. I know people are putting hoppier, higher abv IPA’s out there, but this one is just perfect.

Bottle. Pours a fairly clear golden-yellow with a thick white head. Considerable hop and citrus aromas. Citrus, spice, and floral hop tastes make way for a very long, bitter finish, although the flavors continue to resonate long after the beer has passed down the gullet. Very delicious, although I prefer the balance of their Big Eye. Not sure it lives all the way up to the "100/100" label, but easily one of the better IPAs I have tried.

Pours a clear caramel with a light foamy head. Strong aroma of grains and a hops. Very light and dry, with distinct aftertaste of grains and hops that is not to bitter. More drinkable than other IPA,s of its kind with a brighter crisp taste instead of a harsh earthiness. It almost has a fruity taste as you keep drinking, a menagerie of flavors but none of them fading to a flat aftertaste, it doesn’t leave much of a bitterness in your palate like "other" IPA,s. Its damn good and drinkable.

Awesome to see that Ballast Point’s Sculpin is starting to get the attention it deserves. A well balanced IPA combining some light fruit notes with well-rounded hop base.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours orange/golden. Aroma is one of the best ever in my opinion. Apricots orange jelly come to mind. Flavor was a bit too much citrus at first, but as I come back to it, I think it opens up as it warms. I liken it to grapefuit with a bit of sugar. Finish is nice a lingering with a bit of a hop bite. Very well done.

Color and smell were amazing. Liked the body and head remained constant. Clearly deserves rank amongst the best.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 Fantastic ipa, ... pine, citrus, bready goodness. Lingering smooth bitterness. Quenching and easy to drink.
