This was my introduction to West Coast IPA's. I love the Sculpin for that, but unfortunately I don't buy it. I complained to the company about a bottled on date, and though they sent me fresh beer, they still have not made the change. How hard can it be to put a fuckin calendar bottled on date on the neck of your beer? Not only that, you ruin a great beer experience for prospective customer's when they do not know when it is freshest.
