4.28/5 rDev +5.4%
Appearance: Pours a clear amber with three fingers of creamy beige foam.
Smell: A clean lemon and pine aroma cuts through a sugary, sweet citrus (orange, pineapple and grapefruit) backdrop.
Taste: Much like Sculpin, this is a bitter beast. Lots of pine, floral notes, grapefruit rind, and a bit of a soapy lemon flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, crisp and tingly carbonation that coats the tongue.
Overall, I enjoyed this quite a bit. It's definitely a bold and bitter IPA and, like Sculpin (it's bigger brother), it teeters on being unbalanced. But as intense as it is, it's also bursting with flavor.

4.09/5 rDev +0.7%
Pours a reddish copper hue with minimal dense head and spotty lacing.
Grapefruity sweet aroma and stray hints of pine.
Grapefruit rind bitterness upfront that wanes to the back. Pine, hop leaf and floral aftertaste. This is one bitter brew.
Medium malt body and a hop drying effect. I find this easy drinking.
Pretty decent offering at the right price. A classic IPA.
