Bottle courtesy of Dan..thanks for making it out my way.

Hazed orange with a light white cap and some froth and lace.

Plenty of candied and juicy grapefruit on the nose...tangerines and bright citrus as well.

Candied sweetness meets pithy grapefruit and drying biterness. The bitterness across the middle is flooded over by a tangy citric wave that leaves a juiced fade with a moderately bitter finish.

Smooth and light bodied despite the depth of flavors. Absolutely crushability on display. My glass vanished quickly. Based on memory I enjoyed this substantially more than regular Sculpin, but I'll need to revisit. Thanks Dan, this was very nice.
