Poured from bomber into pint glass.

Missed the enjoy by date on this one
A- Poured a foggy orange body, tons of lively carbonation, great tight white head with excellent lacing. Not too much retention...

S- Very much citrus (grapefruit), pine and some bitter bold hops. Not very aromatic but very inviting none the less. Kinda comes off as an Imperial by the smell alone.

T- Great taste, again grapefruit, subtle pine, sweet malts mixed with tropical fruit. Not complex at all, but a solid IPA with bold characteristics.

MF- Surprisingly light to a light-medium body, sharp carb bite, very crisp and refreshing. Flavor sticks around just long enough to make it a "sipping beer" but the light balanced body and flavor gives this beer great drinkability.

O- Solid solid solid IPA. Indeed one of the better ones I tried with interesting flavors and characteristics. If you are a big IPA lover and haven't got around to sculpin yet, you must! Glad I tried it at work today, hands down delicious.
