Served chilled from a 12 oz bottle and poured into a snifter. Pours a light amber color with an orange hue. Smell is heavily grapefruit, with some citrusy hops in there. Carbonation is moderate with a medium to light body. Taste is incredibly crisp and refreshing, with grapefruit evident the entire experience. The malt is secondary to the hoppy flavor and grapefruit backbone, which tastes like actual grapefruit and not artificial flavoring. Aftertaste is a combo of bitter hops and citrus.
Regular Sculpin is one of my favorite IPAs out there. When Grapefruit Sculpin came out last fall, I reserved a six pack at a local store and fell in love. When I saw this at Carmine Street Beers over the weekend, I had to buy a 6 pack (almost bought 2!). In terms of single IPAs on the market, this may be the best (before anyone freaks out Heady is a DIPA). Remember drink this stuff fresh-you won't be disappointed!
