Had this after finishing an Unfiltered Sculpin. Seemed a little darker, although I didn't look at them side by side. Similar look; fine sediment makes an otherwise almost transparent beer look slightly cloudy. More active carbonation in this one, tall fluffy off-white head which leaves significant lacing. Again, the taste is very hop forward with smooth piney citrus and has some of the same flavours as the Sculpin; again there is no astringent bitterness but the taste ends with a mild earthy spiciness. Quite similar to the Sculpin really, with the difference being slightly more warmth from the alcohol & that spiciness in the taste. Another quality IPA from Ballast Point.
