Nice balance. A bit too boozy of a finish for me. Sculpin is definitely a superior brew to this one.

Maltier than I expected. Well balanced.

Big beer, good malt and biting hop balance. Wasn't getting the fruity citrus taste others mentioned but still great. A pretty brute DIPA

Fantastic! Delicious citrus flavors hit you in the face on the first sip and piney hop flavors on the finish. Has a pleasant warming boozy taste, but not too much. Does not taste like 10%

Apricot and burnt orange on the nose. Sweet orange blossom. Sweet palate with pineapple and orange peel. Almost fresh squeezed orange juice. Even hops with a nice finish. Good semi sweet DIPA.

Good but not great. Not in the same class as Sculpin. Was expecting more since it has been a bit difficult to acquire. You get both citrus and a malt backbone.

Expected more. Definitely not on same class as Sculpin. Decent DIPA, but nothing I'd rush back to.

Great citrus hop flavor but not too bitter. Dry but not bitter finish. A true San Diego style DIPA
