I love the citrus, grapefruit character of this beer. Not a thin IPA, it definitely has some malt body. The citrus hop taste comes in and it transitions to woodsy flavor with a crisp finish.

Gold pour with thick white foam; great lacing. Toffee/BB Bat candy aroma. Malt forward with solid hop flavor to follow. Medium lite mouthfeel. I thought this was hair better than Sculpin.
