Golden and transparent in color; Bright, fruity, and floral in smell. This beer came recommended by a friend, and I suppose I can see why he likes it. Sculpin is a clean IPA similar to various offerings from Lagunitas, but less punchy than Founders. It's not as sweet as it smells, but hoppier than the nose suggests. It's also cleaner than a double IPA, while carrying some DIPA characteristics that I enjoy. The finish is dry and leaves your palette in a position to try something radically different without the side effects of stronger/wilder IPAs. This is a great everyday IPA, and I'd rate it higher if it were priced more reasonably. I don't think it's worth as much as it costs, but that's subjective.
