What a wonderful beer. Its everything that I seek out in an IPA! Just like Sculpin, it is floral and juicy with wonderful hints of tropical fruit and citrus. Not as brightly scented and flavored as Sculpin in my opinion, but where it is not quite as potent with tropical elements, it has a wonderfully fresh flavor with crisp citrus notes to ripen it up. Truly a masterfully done beer!
