4.28/5  rDev -1.2%

Supposedly this is just the Sculpin but with grapefruit peel added in.

A: Light copper with white head. Decent head with good lacing and retention. Bubbly.

S: Primarily grapefruit. Some pineapple and a bit of pine. Big and fresh.

T: Taste is a bit one-dimensional, mainly grapefruit hops. A light touch of tropical fruit and a (very) tiny bit of malt sweetness. Not overly bitter and great drinkability. Overall tasty but lacking complexity.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Very fresh and solid IPA. Still haven't tried the regular Sculpin but now I'm looking forward to it.
