Produced a two finger, white head. Some lacing. Beer color was a translucent gold.

Aroma is of citrus, pineapple, and light biscuit.

Taste was similar, but with some hop bitterness. The taste is very well balanced with the bitterness though. It has an upper medium carbonation, and a medium mouth-feel.

Very good beer!

Enjoyed this magnificent beer next Ina tulip glass alongside a Drakes Aroma Coma. Trying these two beers side by side made me realize the floral characteristics I had never noticed in the Aroma Coma. Plan on buying a 4 pack of the Sculpin to enjoy while watching some football!
