Bomber to my russian river goblet, best by 4/13
Pours a deep golden orange with a finger of foam. Moderate carbonation stems from the center, good retention on the foam. Lacing is good, great looking beer. Smells of hops of course, some lemon and orange zest. Some floral pine melds with a touch of alcohol and a modest malt. Solid hoppy profile, balanced evenly with the malt. Feel is a nice medium body with a dry bitter finish. Over all this beer is really good, however I think it's over hyped and don't know why it's the #3 american ipa. They have a ridiculous shelf life so maybe I need a fresher bottle

This is some of the freshest Sculpin I have been able to get a hold of yet, so I thought I would do a full review since it is one of my all time fave's. Bottle date enjoy by 7-28-13. This beer pours a nice golden amber with a finger of head. The first thing that really stands out is the aroma of fresh tropical fruits and citrus with a small hint of alcohol. The taste is outstanding, piney, citrus hop bite with a hint of malt. Outstanding job by Ballast Point on their flagship brew, deserves all the hype it gets! A staple in my fridge as long as they keep churning it out!
