Thanks to davemont for including this as a much appreciated extra in a recent trade.
22 oz. bottle poured into a Becker Pint Glass.
A: Pours a hazy gold with orange highlights. Pure bright white three finger head that takes several minutes to dissipate. Beautiful lacing.
S: Citrus and honey notes with a very slight citrus rind accent.
T: An opening salvo of juicy orange, grapefruit, and orchid/citrus blossom transitioning into smooth slightly sweet malt and closing with a bite of just the right amount of grapefruit rind hop bitterness.
M: Highly carbonated, silky amooth, and medium bodied.
O: This is an extremely well-balanced and enjoyable IPA. Incredibly easy to drink and full of flavor. I'd love to have a stockpile of Sculpin in the summer. Without a doubt one of the better IPA's I've had.
