Color is nice but has a flat, one dimensional taste (on tap anyway)

I like IPA to be more floral and a little bit sweeter. This beer is good but it tastes just like you're eating a grapefruit.

Are you sure that this is not called the grapefruit sculpin and not the regular sculpin because this freaking beer tastes like it's loaded with grapefruits. Where is the malts to match the intense bitter hops. Anybody that thinks ballast point sculpin makes for a smooth and pleasant drinking IPA is dumber than a box of rocks. D- (60-64)
