My first mobile review. Beach vacation eve and my educated father in law gifts me w Sculpin cans for those lazy sun-filled shore days.
What can I say but to affirm the masses here. A spectacular beer and WC IPA. One of the best I have drunk- reminds me of Red Racer cans. The beer is bright, balanced, and bitter. Great finish and great piney grapefruit esters. A benchmark beer and of of my best beer-drinking experiences of 2014. Thank you Papa!

If you want a hoppy-nosed, bitter bomb of an American IPA... well friend, this is your beer.

West Coast IPA all the way, from the clear light copper color to the American-style hops assaulting your olfactory (albeit in an enjoyable way!) to the palate-clearing bitterness, California or bust!
