A - Very light. Pours a bright golden yellow, with a 3 finger head.
S: Very floral initial aroma. Grapefruit, mango really shines through from the hops. Smells awesome.
T - Really nice, the grapefruit is the star and the other flavors marry in nicely. It is fresh and citrusy but it adds a bitter hoppy punch that I absolutely love.
M- Biting and rather crisp. Very well carbonated.
This is one of my favorite IPA's and am extremely pleased that I can get Ballast Point in Florida now. If you love IPA's then this beer is a must try.

A: Thin golden color, with a thick rocky white head.
S: Lots of citrus, and pine in the smell.
T: Taste follows the nose well. Lots of citrus, and pine. Slightly resinous up front, and lots of grapefruit following that.
M: The mouthfeel is very smooth, and perfectly carbonated.
O: Overall this is one of my top three IPAs. The others being Lost Gold, and Blind Pig.

Not sure why this gets such high ratings. To me, there's nothing special about it at all. Aroma is similar to Sierra Nevada Torpedo. A bit sour with a very small hint of sweetness. Mostly floral, hardly any citrus in the aroma at all. Taste is a little better, but not by much. Still no citrus. Just some bitter hops. Thin body, not much mouthfeel. Has sort of a "tea-like" flavor to it that throws me off. The finish is clean, doesn't leave much of an aftertaste -- I guess that's the best part of the beer. This is $13.99 in my area and it's actually worth about HALF of that. A big disappointment for me.

Literally the best IPA on the planet. If you're lucky enough to make it to the brewery when they have their special Habanero brew, you're in for a treat. Sculpin IPA infused with with the spice of Habenero peppers...you'll have to taste it to understand. Very spicy, but the spice and the bitterness of the IPA blend perfectly.
