Local to San Diego these go for $3 on tap at some spots. My go to beer if available due to how consistently it makes me happy. After trying HT I've now placed Sculpin at #2 on my IPA list... Sad story but nonetheless an awesome beer. Clear gold/amber color and citrus fruit on the nose. Mouth feel is good, very dry after it goes down with some bitterness. GREAT BEER. $$$
Serving type: on-tap

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!!!
