4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from SB. Very good IPA, actually one of the first craft beers I bought, now finally in the ordinary stock of SB. Very good indeed, but the competition has become stronger so Sculpin may no longer be the best IPA available, but still one of the best.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden with a creamy, white head that sticks and leaves good lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and piney hops. Solid malt backbone with medium bitterness. Light bodied with a decent length bitter finish. Solid, but not one of the best.

Aroma is hop and grass. Bronze appearance with medium carbonation. Taste is excellent. Nice caramel sweetness on the front with excellent hop on the end.

Thanks to Zio Aldo for this bad boy, from a bomber pours an orange to gold hue with a frothy white head. Aroma is subtle, citrus, tropical fruit, touch of floral. Can’t believe how smooth and light the mouthfeel is. What a fantastic experience on the palate, light, but complex. Outstanding beer.

I know that we are not to rate on style, but purely on if we like it. Too bad. Even though I am not a fan of west-coast hop bombs, I must say that this is one of the best highly-hopped brews out there. Lots of apricot and citrus. Amazing aroma. Hard to find, but worth the search. Did I mention the aroma? Wow.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy golden color with medium tight white head that laces all the way down. Aroma is sweet juicy flowery hops. Taste is dank hoppiness with biting grapefruit citrus and a nice malty backbone. Follow through is dank bitter hoppiness that lingers nicely in the aftertaste. Overall this is a very well balanced IPA.

Great I.P.A. This one was a bit travelled and I will definitely try it again and re-rate it fresh. fruity aromas and flavours, more diverse than the standard citrus/pine US IPA and nice underlaying maltiness.

Big tropical and deep citrus on the nose. The taste is... wow.... Pineapple, tangerine - a nice lingering bitter mandarin orange. Great carb + mouthfeel. One of my favorites of all time. Great now it is in a 12oz. Must be fresh, fresh, this beer falls off a cliff.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber/Yellow in color, with good carbonation and lacing. Smells and tastes of sweet fruit and resin with a hint of hops (leaves a fruity aftertaste) which i enjoy.
