A - Nice dark orange color, almost red. Unusually dense head for style.

S - Pine, citrus, and slight vanilla scent. Not sure if my nose is off or actually smelled vanilla?

T - Bold hop flavors. Nice smooth finish.

M - Nice carbonation produces thick tingly gulps.

O - I like the Sculpin a tad better for it's drink-ability and sweet finish. However, this is still a great beer and another reason that Ballast Point is moving towards the top of my list of favorite breweries. Prost.
