On tap at the source. 6.2%

A rich, clear light copper with a dense, white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is classic PNW IPA from 2008. Crystal malt, aggressive pine in a way thats honestly shocking, candied grapefruit, a bruising bitterness. The palate mirrors this, with a pungent, pine heavy bitterness that is not oily, but simply overbearing. Flavors of caramel are present on the medium light palate. Bitter, drying , pine heavy on the finish, this is arguably tired but earnestly and skillfully executed.

I had this beer on-tap in a nonic at the brewery.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a touch of haze and a very strong effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy white foam.

Smell: lightly malty with a bit of an earthy hop element, though not especially strong.

Taste: sweet and bready with a pretty sharp bitterness, though not a ton of hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: not a bad IPA, definitely more of a bitter type than a bouquet type. A good drink alongside food.

I'm not too impressed by a lot of the beer from this brewery, but the Sculler's IPA really does stand apart. It has such a nice balance of flavor that is actually accentuated by the hinting aroma behind it all. The color is truly a ne'er perfect amber, especially behind the light. Pours clear and with a nice head of foam too. Definitely one of the better main stream IPAs from the Washington area that I can vouch for. . . Then again, this could be just the bottom of my growler of Sculler's IPA talking right about now woot woot : D

I'm thinking this is a IPA drinkers IPA. It is dry, and th Bitter goes from start to finish and lingers. The occassional IPA consumer probably will not rate as high. A solid Washington St. Beer using Wasington home grown ingredients. Whatever you do drink a second one, I think that will do it!
