Nose: resiny, citrusy hops
Brilliant gold with a 2" bone white foam cap with small to medium sized bubbles.
Waves of flavor blend yeasty peach and apricot with lemony hop citrus over biscuit grain to culminate with a long lingering citrus rind bitterness. Dries out on the finish as all the flavors round out and come into perfect balance.
Very creamy medium bodied beer with medium levels of soft, finely bubbled carbonation.

I get a very strong tea flavor from Sculpin. I don't understand the hype or why people are willing to pay $16 for a 6 pack.
