Lacks some character in the aroma. But the bitterness is awesome. Strong, present but brief. Great IPA. User452967 (99) - - MAR 25, 2017
Aroma: Masculine, hops. Appearance: Clea, light-brown. Taste/Palate: More like an Imperial IPA, hops, bitterness, some distant tropical fruits. Overall: A masculine IPA. wojanex (236) - warszawa, POLAND - MAR 23, 2017
poprawna, całkiem przyjazna podniebieniu ipa, pijalna, ale Polacy robią lepsze i znacznie tańsze piwa w tej kategorii. nie warto przepłacać. MeadMuse39 (17) - Haddon Township, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Pour: Golden orange amber. Head is a creamy white with beautiful lacing. It looks like your grandmother’s doily.
Bouquet: Clementine citrus, raw sugar, piney, and floral hops.
The Sip: Toasted malt notes start off and fade into the hops. These herbal and floral hops spring up through the malt notes and burst citrus onto the scene. There is a nice hop bitterness which cleanses the palate of the malt makes Sculpin very well balance. Sculpin reminds me of apricot jam, orange-marmalade, light creamy malts. Toasted bread. Deep resin.
Mouth-Feel: Small, sharp carbonation. Medium body. Tart pucker on finish.
Overall: Exceptional. An intensely complex IPA. Flavor notes are deeply layered, and very well balanced. You could drink this with almost anything and it would steal the show, I would suggest light foods to pair with this, lightly fried fish, grilled chicken, or sauteed shrimp.

I have been anticipating a serving of Sculpin for some time. Restrained anticipation. Bought in a six pack, first one out. I drained the bottle in a tall beer glass. It gives a swell medium gold liquid and a charged white head that laces quite well. Lifted for a scent it is a moderate citrus and grass nose with a hint of sweetness. The taste is moderately hoppy, lemon, and pineapple. Pleasantly bitter at the end, it lingers on the tongue. Perhaps the best rounded IPA I have had.

Bottle. Shared at Beertemple, Amsterdam. Thanks! Pours golden amber with almost no head. Fresh fruity aroma, lots of citrus, peach, light sweet malts. Taste is over moderate bitter, resiny bitter aftertaste. Very nice. rami_pl (3429) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 19, 2017

Takie normalne, niezbyt intensywne, disc zbalansowane, juz utlenione jandorris (687) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Zapach ziołowo-żywiczny. W smaku też ziołowo-żywicznie. Goryczka bardzo fajne zaznaczona, a zupełnie niezalegająca. Fajne. brownaler (662) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Fresh pineapple fruit with mango and guava tastes like a rainforest in your mouth. cervmagpt (835) - PORTUGAL - MAR 17, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 21A). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch SC1447 (BBF unknown). AROMA: medium hop aroma with some oxidation notes already taking place. notes of mango, slight peach and faint dried grass. medium-low almost neutral malt background with a slight oxidation note (caramelized). APPEARANCE: deep gold/orange-ish color and clear. medium white head with good retention. TASTE: medium-low hop notes (resin/pine), followed by a slight caramelized medium-low malt background. medium-high bitterness with a dry and bitter finish that endures. PALATE: medium-light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an american IPA showing oxidation notes and that should be nice fresher. The US breweries should pay more attention to the shipping conditions because the Europeans also want to drink your great beer. ;)
