Ah, finally, an IPA that is really good. Seems a lot of the "hey lets make a brewery" brewers are producing things that are labelled as an IPA, but really taste like old stale hops! Don’t get me wrong, you have a few out there that are making some really great IPAs and this is one of them. Clean, fresh, bitterly hoppy, foamy, citrusy...hits all the marks! Really nice IPA!!! I’m drinking one now!!!

Poured from a 22oz bottle at Devil's Den

Pours a slightly hazy light brassy color with an orange tint. A thick white head that leaves a solid lace residue

Loads of citrus and light fruit in the nose. Mango, grapefruit, peach, orange, all together and lovely

The fruit is in the flavor too, really crisp citrus hops with a pine balance. Not a hint of malt but I do not miss it.

Carbonation is just right, the body is right where it should be - really a great feel and finish.

I have been hearing about Sculpin for a long time and was thrilled to have it. A great, great IPA and a beer I wish I could have to drink all day
