Thanks to corregidore for this tasty extra! The last time I had a Sculpin, they didn't print dates on the labels but it tasted way past its prime. I'm stoked to finally get the chance to try it fresh. This one is marked ENJOY BY 10/27/12. Dope. Poured from bomber to pint:
Pours a clear gold with minimal beading and a half finger of white head that retains rather well. Good lacing.
Great on the nose - mango is the first thing that comes to mind. It's definitely got that bright fruit character but more geared towards tropical, non-citrus. Smells delicious.
Super smooth. More of that sweet fruit surfaces. This beer beautifully demonstrates the versatility of the hop flower. Very tropical with virtually no perceived bitterness. Tasty.
Thanks for the delicious beer, Ryan!
