Hopped and Bothered; Ballast Point Sculpin

Ballast Point -- Sculpin

Alcohol content 7%. The coloring is copper, clear as a penny. Its clean and crisp. Instant grapefruit rind on the sip. Aroma is heavy mango with a hint of bread. A hint of pine on the after bite. After several seconds, the mango becomes stronger on the bite. Apricot mouthful. Quick finish. Bitter and potent finish, with pine resin and mango essence.

Buy if: No BUTS. Buy this.

Overall: One of the great IPAs, with excellent fruit overtones and an amazing finish.

4.5 out of 5.
