On tap for The Full Pint 6th Anniversary Celebration held at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and grapefruit aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a very nice citrus presence that make this one easy to drink.

Serving type: on-tap

Doin' it well and good at Toronado (San Diego).

Whoa doggy. Yeah, hmmmm huh. This dog can hunt! Straight up, Sculpin with grapefruit - no more, no less. And Raul likes it. Raul likes it real good. Kind of like sprinkling a little bit of sugar on Miranda Kerr before you take a bite. Yep!

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.

Serving type: on-tap

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
