Not overly hoppy but has a citrusy bite. A perfect combination to drink several at a time.

This beer is really robust. The flavor marinates on your pallet after you swallow and then keeps morphing into a different after taste. I've experienced this with very expensive wine before, but never with beer.

Impressive!

One of the best there is. I could drink this beer all day every day and never get sick of it. Its got some hints of grapefruit, other good piney notes, and is just down right drinkable! I love scuplin!
