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!

A: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers of head that sticks around for a good while and leaves some nice lacing

S: Predominantly hops, which provide notes of citrus and apricots. Good, but not all that complex

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a strong hop presence, mostly citrus and some floral notes. Not too much malt presence. Bitter towards the middle-end

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very drinkable IPA that is quite approachable. A little pricey overall, but the quality is there. Recommended
