Feeling crazy, drinking straight from the bottle, so can't say what the "color" is...but have to report this offering represents the SoCa "West Coast" IPA scene very well! My bottle has 6.5% Abv (not 7+% as Ba states), not that it matters, as it makes an excellent session brew and one I'm currently enjoying...in-laws and all!

This is about as close to Sculpin as a beer can get. In fact, I'm pretty sure the brewer from Ironfire used to work at Ballast. Similar overall aroma and smell, with maybe slightly less aroma than really fresh sculpin and maybe a touch more bitterness. Overall a pretty nice IPA.
