A:Hazy orange-amber body. Moderate sized off-white head which quickly crashed down to a skim. Some spotty lacing left behind.

S: A pleasant tropical fruit style IPA. Getting a bit of orange and grapefruit but not a whole lot of layered complexity.

T: Like the nose, its fairly one dimensional ... but again, a nice flavor. Orange and grapefruit dominate. A surprising bit of general malty sweetness edges its way in.

M: Medium bodied, with soft, gentle carbonation. Not particularly bitter. A dull, muted finish that isn't quite dry enough for my liking.

D: Not quite tasty enough for the name "Just Outstanding." I'd put it in the good to very good range. When it comes to tropical fruit IPAs, Sculpin sets a high bar and this brew just isn't on that level.
