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.

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 doesnít leave much of a bitterness in your palate like "other" IPA,s. Its damn good and drinkable.

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

Com um aroma satisfatório, bem lupulada. Espuma nao se mantém por muito tempo, amargor bom mas poderia ser mais presente em toda degustação.

Iím pleased to say that this beer is as good as it has been made out to be. Aromas of pineapple, mango, banana and tangerine with a bit of pine resin and caramel. Light amber with a head of fine white froth and great clarity. Very well balanced taste, a little malt sweetness coming through with a lot of hop bitterness to finish but not overwhelm. Light bodied and smooth on the palate with a long, dry finish, lively carbonation.
Overall this is a fine example of an American West Coast ipa and Iíd be more than happy to drink a few of these anytime.

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

Bottle from local grocery. Good aroma. Well balanced hop flavor. Very impressed. Never had ballast point before, but will look out for their beers again. Very good.

By far the cleanest, most well balanced IPA I have tried. Not too heavy and complimented by a citrus aroma. Not overly hoppy but remains full of flavor. The body is solid throughout. Overall one of my top 5 beers. Try it!
