I'd like to start out by saying that if you are deciding to buy Ballast Point Sculipn IPA in a $9 bomber or the six pack for $15, do yourself a favor and go for the six pack. All of the subtle tropical delicacies are prominent in this flavorlful/hoppy and satisfying IPA. Truth be told, $9 is a steep price for a bomber, one that raises expectations extremely high,maybe too high, into the price range of the highly coveted Lawson's Ale.

Pleasant citrusy nose, well carbonated and quite drinkable despite a sharp bite at first, but the aftertaste is long lasting and pleasant with some alcohol warmth in there.

For my taste, I agree with the World Class status this fine IPA has earned,and it is most worthy of another purchase. Treat yourself right and go get a six pack of this delicious IPA: it is woth the extra few dollars and above the pack!
