Sculpin sports a pale-orange, clear body with a touch of the foaminess on top. Grassy, herbal, piney and citrusy hops play over top a candy-like malt aroma. A taste reveals pretty much exactly what the aroma hints at: A nice blend of all the classic hop qualities, well balanced by the mild sweet malts. It's bitterness is very firm but not overbearing. it finishes very nicely with a medium body, and not too sweet. Overall a top-notch IPA.
