This beer was one I was really looking forward to trying. I can't imagine anything much better than my favorite ipa on Nitro. The color was your typical golden hue which was mostly clear. The smell was good but not as strong as the normal sculpin.Tropical fruit --mangoes, pineapple and orange pith. I can't tell you how much I enjoy the nose of Sculpin. The taste follows the nose. Plenty of tropical flavors that consist of pineapple,orange,tangerine and some mango. It is bitter on the finish but has that slight biscuit quality to take out some of the bitterness. I wish there was a way they could put this nitro in a bottle because the creaminess that comes from nitro has to be experienced to believe. Nitro adds a whole new level of mouthfeel to what I already think is a amazing beer and my top ipa. Overall I love this beer and hope to have it again. I wish the nitro version was a little fresher which would be my only complaint and therefore I enjoyed the regular version better. When I did the side by side of the two versions the color of the two was night and day different. I did enjoy the mouthfeel of this beer. Glad I got to try it.
