Wow, another new brewery in the Southland. On-tap at 38 Degrees, to the beer:
Looks paler orange with yellow and red hues and a solid retaining head on top. Hope is brought in from an inspiring nose. There's passionfruit, orange, pineapple, some of my favorite aromas in an IPA. It doesn't quite reach the crescendo of greatness, but it's still very appealing.
This is a dry IPA. It starts dry at the start, then the wave of hops come. Crackery dry malt at the base, hops coming through and painting a picture on the canvas in the form of orange and passionfruit. Its texture is smooth and is medium bodied, but surprisingly isn't bitter. Dry and crackery in its aftertaste.
This was a delight to drink. A very good IPA that's not far from being a great one.

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.
