Commercial Description

The Sculpin is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. It showcases bright flavors and aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. The lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops.
Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin is considered some of the tastiest. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale. Availability Year-round in 22oz & draft. Bitterness 70 IBUS. Alc. by Vol. 7 %. Serving Temperature 40-45 degrees.

    bottle into a stella glass bottled on the 100th day 2015 so 03/15 ish
    A: hard pour yields a lovely pale orange with alsi attractive tan head. Great clarity. Good retention.
    S: Grapefruit and pine needles. A bit of malt sweetness barely detectable.
    T: More grapefruit than pine in taste but otherwise follows the nose. Fairly juicy and overall pretty tasty. Not boozy tasting.
    M: Light for its strength and well carbonated to make a refreshing drink.
    O: A pretty good IPA I guess but no way I’ll pay $14/6 for it. Stronger than I prefer as well but that’s another story. Ripped off my local HT with a 10 dollar mix-6. Way overpirced.

    The beer has an extremely floral nose. It is simply wonderful when it is ice cold; I would've rated it higher if not for the fact that as it gets warmer it grows slightly pungent.

    This is right up there with Pliny the Elder in my opinion. Low malt taste ad high hop flavor. Citrus/fruity and the smell will get you evertime. Almost a perfect West Coast style IPA. If you love IPAs you MUST try Sculpin.
