Clear brilliant oranges under a slightly off-white head which fades slowly and purposefully into a thin collar bordering a soft blanket. Lovely layers of lace linger and remain mostly undisturbed with a few teasatory swirls.
Massive grapefruit, key lime, and lemon esters abound – take whole fruits, cut, peel, squeeze, enjoy. Grapefruit is the dominant citrus which directs and carries the key lime and lemon. Pine needles and fir trees underneath. Whisper of mint leaf in the back. Crunchy white table crackers. Dew-dropped freshly mown grass as far as the nose can smell in-between row after row of citrus trees equally dew-dropped with fruit hanging low.
Grapefruit abounds – pink, white, and yellow – fresh, tart, sweet, and bright. Mint, fir trees, and pine needles in the finish. Bracing parching cleansing finish. Cut dew-dropped green grass. Closing the eyes I envision myself amidst rows of citrus trees hanging heavy and damp forests of vivid green fir and pine trees. Crisp, clean, and brilliant. Rind lingers atop my tongue after each swallow.
I’d drunk many a glass of Sculpin from Ballast Point before I realized I had yet to take tasting notes. Oops. Guess I’ll just have to “suffer” through another glass, and so I did and here we are now. Amidst it all I seem to have developed a mighty thirst and I know exactly why. Make mine a Sculpin, please and thanks.
Grapefruit aroma light white head. Clear golden appearance. Medium carbonation mellow initial taste finishing with moderate hop bitterness

Bottle in San Diego. Pours almost amber, foamy head. Malty aroma with a little citrus. Taste is well balanced hop, malt, citrus, booze. It's a standard for a reason. It's really good. One or two marks off for overcarbonation. Lowenbrau (4681) - Asturias, SPAIN - OCT 10, 2017

In short: nice resinous IPA.
Did I enjoy it: sure.
Pours hazy dark gold-orange with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, little lacing. Nose is herbal, citrusy, pine, resins, ripe fruit. Medium body, average carbonation, slick texture. Taste is bitter, herbal, resinous, some dry aftertaste. Good one, nice to find fine american IPA´s nowadays, in the days of hazy-juicy-whatever IPA´s. Ok, we have to say this, we heard about this one for so long, were eager to try it, but it was a bit dissapointing, Truly a good IPA, but like many others we have tasted.
On tap. Clear deep golden color with tiny white head. Aroma - Citrus hops, grapefruit, pine, tangerine, peach. Taste - Bitter, light sweetness, tropical marmelade, malt, caramel, pine, grapefruit peel. tlconnor (3) - - OCT 3, 2017 does not count
Refreshing and clean. Not too heavy and pairs well with wings. I would recommend

IPA w stylu West coast. Ładnie się prezentuje, piwo koloru złotego z obfitą pianą. Aromat owoce tropikalne, cytrusy, chmiel. W smaku owoce i dużo goryczki przełamanej słodyczą Bacchus66 (886) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2017
Tap, ADT. Pours clear golden range with a sticky off-white head. First thing is citrus hops, grape, orange, tangerine, peaches, pine, resin, caramel malt. Nice oily texture. Long bitter citrus finish makes this tough to set down. Lots of hops, but nicely balanced. Really good. ryd (2) - - SEP 28, 2017 does not count
