Best Ballast Point brew in my opinion. Would take this over Sculpin any day.

Poured into a pint glass from a bottle. Smells of citrus and earthy hops, nice and full. Tastes of citrus hops with just enough earthiness and sweet grain to compliment. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation, crisp and refreshing. Overall, a very good beer.

Some of the smoother, lighter hops but still robust enough to tingle the taste buds. Orange copper body with small creamy head. Overall citrusy nature, but allowing the malts to shine through. All around great IPA
