look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- On tap in home, got a huge head of foam initially then subsidises to nice quarter inch white thick foam. Leaves pretty lacing on glass. Golden amber color but in low light not really sure.
S- Really nice floral hops, fruity citrus with some grassy characters. Very nice .
T- Malt sweetness up front with grapefruit, mango fruity goodness. Strong hops follow on then continue into midway and end of swallow. Malt balance shines with biscuit , caramel holds up well with the aggressive hops throughout. NOthing of an off character nature found.
M- about medium bodied. Carbo seems right with nice refreshing sparkle. Very smooth drinking.
O- Just an overall fantastic IPA. Does the west coast style extremely well. Probably my #1 IPA in my short journey through craft beer land. I've got many more to try[Pliny, Heady, Fuzzy BD, to name a few] but the reputation for Sculpin holds up for me.
