It’s Thirstday – So every Thursday I’ll Review A Brew

sculpinThis week it’s Ballast Point Brewery’s Sculpin IPA. For everyone that just groaned as soon as they saw “IPA”, don’t go away yet.

It’s true that many people are turned off by a hoppy brew but there’s no need to fear this beer. It very well balanced, smooth with a light finish. No bitter beer face with this one.

With a 7% ABV it packs a little punch to go along with the slightly fruity, lemony goodness. The hint of pine doesn’t overpower the traces of pineapple, banana and caramel. Copper pour with small head and thick lacing.

If you have tried an IPA and didn’t like it, give this one a try. Not overpowering and is perfect for a hot summer day. This would be one of the first IPAs I’d give to someone that has never tried one.
