Nice fresh citrus/fruity aroma. Apricot, grapefruit flavors dominate, but all in all a extremely well balanced IPA. Very drinkable, but with plenty of character. jrodooo5 (1638) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Hmm, I;m not quite getting the hype for this one. It has a near perfect rustic orange pour with a big white head that fades into good lacing. The aroma is a very generous amount of hops. The taste is just a little too bitter for me. It just doesn’t follow through in complexity. I can see how the bitter hop heads love this but I don’t think it’s worthy of being 100, sorry - however, still a fine, fine beer. scotchzombie (583) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2013 Pours hazy deep orange gold with a fluffy, golden-tinged head that settles to a finger and fades gradual-like. Wafts a wonderful sweet aroma that carries over into the front end of a sip. Floral hop notes and vanilla, caramel, orange and peach. Taste has powerful and complex citrus from sweet orange and lemon to bitter grapefruit. Incredible balance - this beer dances along your tongue. Pine hops and caramel malt in there too. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitterness is enhanced with warming. Outstanding depth of flavor and truly amazing balance between sweet and bitter. A world-class IPA. Mattmcc42 (11) - - MAY 28, 2013
Crisp citrus and pine hops balanced perfectly with not overly sweet malt. Possibly my new favorite IPA. Damn fine beer. Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours orangish amber with white head. Strong citrus and pine hops. Taste is hoppy with caramel and tofee notes. Excellent malt presense that is not to overwhelming.

P: Pours a clear (tiny specks) apricot body with a off white milky head that leaves behind wet sloppy lacing.
S: Aroma delivers lush peaches and apricots are leading the way of the tropical parade. Lemon tartness and faint pine resin contribute to the sweet fruit.
T/M: Super sweet tropical fruits up front then the bitter lemon, grapefruit and orange oil take over the dry finish. Toasted toffee malt and pepper. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation.
O: Lush tropical fruits delicate spice and toasted malt. The bitterness in the finish really rounds out the sweetness. Fantastic easy drinking IPA to seek out.

Bottle. This particular one was almost months old and I believe the rating was affected adversely. Pour golden orange with off white head. Smell is bright citrus and caramel maltiness. Taste is orange/grapefruit and more caramel maltiness than I would prefer. Even for a 3 month old bottle. Will rate this but seek out a fresh bottle as this was not memorable. adeezhop (42) - port jeff sta, Alabama, USA - MAY 20, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 Great beer always a fine choice. You can never go wrong with the fish ! If your looking for a great representation of a west coast ipa, sculpin is a safe bet. Drink it fresh..... Ed5388 (3448) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a bright gold/orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma has a strong hop presence of citrus, pine, and tropical fruits. Taste has lots of citrus, and pine. Slightly resinous up front, and lots of grapefruit bitterness follows in the finish. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2013
