Concentrated juicy citrus aroma with some grapefruit and hints of lemon. The malt smells dry and sweet. Tingly lemon/citrus with some grapefruit and that dry cake malt and then ending with a very nice and pleasing IPA bitterness. Definitely one of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had. 721Lance (82) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
One of some that like this better than sculpin...this is not a huge musty dimension hop deal but a perfect use of pine and grassy hops that make thus a perfect standard SD IPA, great crisp mouthfeel, great hoppy flavor all around. pricey290483 (809) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
bottle from mother kellys best beer i have had for a while nice pale colour aroma filled with citrus fruits with a lovely bitter finish that will leave you wanting more a very very good beer GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Pours a dark golden amber color w/ full, semi creamy froth that slowly recedes to reveal its beautiful garter. Aromas of snappy citrus rind w/ an almost Lambic tart whiff. Very nice ! Full nectar w/ ample residual effers creates a velvety texture. This brew is balanced right off the bat. Nothing is over-riden here. Big malts meet snappy hops head on in a collision to create strongly flavored yet perfectly drinkable IPA. But, theres a twist, a twist of salted raspberry w/o the berry, just the RASP part. Like I said in the aroma. A Lambic tartness w/ salt. Freakin awsome. I could tell by first sip this was a classic. The finish is perfect w/ the asprin bittering mechanism that is sustained like The Edges’ guitar solos. Well balanced and thirst quenching. Connoisseurs Choice ! Highly recommended. ( I have to knock a bit off because it’s only 6%, my only complaint. Should be 7%) liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2014
12 oz can. Aroma: malty, resinous, and very piney. Taste/Palate: crisp and sweet throughout; finishes with a long bitterness. The malt backbone almost keeps up with the bittering hops in this one, but not quite. Nevertheless, a pretty fantastic beer!

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2009 22 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of peach, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine. Every bit as good as I had remembered; big bitter grapefruit hop flavor. Just outstanding. You don’t typically find flavor this big in a single IPA. At 6% you get most of the big hop flavor of a DIPA without the high alcohol. This is, to date, my favorite IPA. ColaKid (82) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2014
A perfect American IPA. Full bodies, complete hops, perfect bitterness and complexity. Am happy to pay the $22 a six pack at DM’s for this magical beer. Would love to try the Sculpin, apparently it’s even better than this!
