BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States
ballastpoint.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Pineapple Sculpin IPA came from one of many small-batch cask experiments to enhance the flavor of our signature IPA. With so many tropical hop notes in Sculpin, how could we not try adding some sweet, juicy pineapple? The combination of fruity flavors and hop intensity definitely packs a punch.

Pineapple smell is very strong up front. Surprisingly though the actual pineapple taste is pretty subtle, mostly I just taste the typical sculpin bittery hops taste. Well carbonated.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Smells of tropical fruit and citrus hops. Tastes of citrus and earthy hops with passion fruit and slight banana. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

L: This one looks just as good as the grapefruit does. 2 and a half finger head just a little lighter in the color than the grapefruit and regular sculpins. Very good looking beer.
S: You can smell the pineapple for sure, it is at the forefront of the smell, following behind it is all the hoppy goodness that the original sculpin brings with it.
T: Pineapple sweetness first and foremost, followed by the hop bitterness that you have come to know and love from the ol' sculpin.
F: Not quite as dry as the other two are probably because the pineapple is a sweeter fruit than the grapefruit, I'm not sure though.
O: Still very good just doesn't quite stack up to the regular Sculpin or Grapefruit Sculpin. Would still recommend and would still buy again.

Very much a pineapple scent to this brew, although not so much on the palate. Medium body and slightly sweet.

Like a T-Rex chewing on a pineapple, this one roars at you. All those familiar Sculpin hops, but with pineapple and stuff, you know? Smooth like like an Adele single, and slightly malty like a... a dollop of malt. I like it, but I ain’t hella trippin’.
