3.25/5 rDev -26.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
**Mexican food prior to tasting**
Appearance: this is a more golden amber hue than either of the two. Its right in the middle. There is moderate head after the pour. The brew is cloudy, and it is moderately bubbling.
Smell: Heavy floral aroma full of hops. No citrus hints noted.
Taste: Very bitter, the hops hit you hard. Alcohol level is not noticeable. Floral smell is missing from the taste, in general i feel that something is missing. It leaves me wanting something more.
Mouthfeel: light on the carbonation, but a very thick brew. This works well together. This brew is very very thick.
Overall: This was recommended to me by a guy at Sam's Quik shop in Durham, Nc. I am a bit disappointed in this beer, not as good as it smells.

4.24/5 rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 7% abv.
Appearance: It has a clear golden body with lots of visible carbonation. The builds up tall and thick with a just off white head. This head quickly faded out on me making next to no lacing.
Smell: There is a bid hop presence here with loads of citrusy and piney hop notes.
Taste / Palate: The first few sips I mostly got loads of pine like and some citrusy grapefruit and lemon rind flavor notes. As I drank on and the beer warms more peach like fruit notes and maltiness comes out. The finish is all hop bitterness which lingers for some time. The body and carbonation feel spot on and I can see why Sculpin IPA is so highly rated.
Notes: Classic West coast IPA!!!
