Had at the Long Beach Brewery. Enjoyed it, maybe even more so than the original. I feel as though the fruit notes come through more than the original.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Finger thick lacing, deep golden orange color. Very nice.

Smell: Very sweet and fruity. Hints of orange, apricot, peach, hops, grapefruit, and light pine. This almost smells as fruity as a citrus IPA.

Taste: Strong initial taste of hops and apricot. Lingering taste of orange and peach with a nice peppery bite. Bitter, but much less so than I expected from this one. Very refreshing and drinkable, not heavy.

Feel: Perfect carbonation level, not thick or thin. Ever so slightly sticky. Very pleasant.

Overall: Very fruity and light. Not what I expected from this at all, but I like it more than their traditional Sculpin. This is going to find its way into my go to rotation for sure.

pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head which slowly dissipates leaving nice lacing. There is a smell of large stone fruits with notes of lemon in the background. taste follows the nose. there is little mouth feel as there is very little bitterness in this beer.

More fruity than a standard sculpin, which is quite excellent in its own right. Not artificial or excessive as when breweries try to enhance the flavors by playing up the pineapple or grapefruit aspects of a beer. Very very good

Tasty, fruity, slightly bitter, quite good. Both this one and the traditional Sculpin are winners. A very high quality IPA that most will enjoy. Try it!
