What a spectacular beer! I have read that many consider this the best IPA in the world and I can easily see why. The Sculpin lets you know you are drinking a damn good IPA without hitting you over the head with a one note hop bomb that wears out your palate. It starts with a nice dry hoppy bitterness that gives way to a good citrusy bite with a bit of apricot fruitiness. The strong citrusy aroma and full medium body really round out this top notch beer.
