Ballast Point Sculpin IPA

March 10, 2013

Overall Grade:B+
Taste:B+
Drinkability:C-
Aroma:A

Full-bodied IPA packed with hops.

Sculpin IPA is for the hops lovers. Fruity up front, it finishes with lingering bitterness.

My tastebuds are a little overcome by the bitterness. And there's something a little awkward in the mid-taste for me. I could enjoy a 4-6 pour of it, but 12 or 22 are a bit much. I enjoy it more as a slow sipping beer than something to get through quickly.

Sweet fruity, malty, hoppy aroma, provides a tempting preview.
