Exactly what I expected from a grapefruit IPA... has nice ruby pink color, grapefruit smell and taste... only downside was lost some of the "bite" that I enjoy from regular sculpin.

The beer is so well-centered around the grapefruit. The aromas are incredible

Awesome grapefruit smell, unfortunately taste is not great, lacking bite of regular Sculpin.
