A-Orange/amber. Decent white head. Foamy. Bubbly lacing like after-tide foam. Held to light becomes shiny and golden.
S-Apricot. Peach. Mango. Pineapple. Papaya. Cream. Orange. Lemon. Lime. Hops and malts can be plucked out if you're not hypnotized by the fruit arrangement playing on the nose. Floral perfume. Best smelling beer.
T-Like biting into multiple fruits at once. Creamy peaches. Yogurt-y via head foam. Apricot. Pineapple. Orange. Lemon. Lime. Any and every tropical fruit washes over tongue. A paragraph of fruits alone can be listed. Grapefruit can be detected, but I feel Sculpin to be more sweet than bitter-hoppy. Malt and pine exist. The fruits are just so dominating, like actual fruits were squeezed into the beer.
M-Low/moderate body. Medium carbonation. Typical quality IPA feel. You feel like you're drinking carbonated juice. With malt and hops inside.
O-One really can't name an IPA BETTER than Sculpin. Only a two or three finger, not even a handful, of choices that are ON PAR. For myself, Bell's-Two Hearted Ale is an example. Sculpin is the most sensory balanced IPA that opts to focus on the tropical smell and taste above all. A fridge is not a fridge without Sculpin in it at all times.
