4.63/5 rDev +5.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
Served in a Spiegelau IPA glass.
appearance: golden just like Sculpin
Smell: Citrus right when open the bottle
Taste: Grapefruit right at the start. Not subtle at all. It hits you just like if you were drinking a grapefruit soda (Izzy comes to mind) but it transitions into a nice citrusy hop flavored sculpin. This is a great beer and ACTUALLY tastes of grapefruit
Mouthfeel: crisp and medium. Seems more carbonated than regular sculpin but it could just be because of the grapefruit but it actually fits really well.
Overall: Sculpin is amazing as it is and this is a perfect summer edition.

Ballast Point has taken a great beer and created another great beer. The nose is definitely grapefruit. The draw is sculpin ipa. The finish finishes clean, dry, and crisp with grapefruit notes. Ballast Point just bottled and released it today at all their tap rooms and breweries. Not sure if they will distribute it. All I know is that it was going fast so I had to buy a case to have on hand for this Fourth of July!

20oz glass on tap
A: Clear and golden. Looks like Sculpin.
S: Not too strong, some citrus and hops. Smells like Sculpin.
T: Nice crisp bitterness, slightly sweet maltiness, lots of citrusy hoppy goodness. Tastes like Sculpin, wait for it, with GRAPEFRUIT. This beer really takes on the grapefruit flavor incredibly well. It is distinctly different from the grapefruit notes you would get from hops and tastes very much like the fruit without overwhelming the other aspects of the beer.
M: Medium body, crisp. Feels like Sculpin.
O: Really great beer, if you like Sculpin and you like grapefruit then chances are you will like this beer.
Serving type: on-tap
