Quick Tasting: Grapefruit Sculpin IPA
July 9, 2015

Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPAWow. Okay. I’ve been excited to try the Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA since I first heard of it, and we were able to pick one up in a mixed six pack last weekend.

We made dinner tonight (a couple of hot dogs), and while I was sipping the beer, I was wondering if I’d gone crazy. It was delicious, like Sculpin, and had the bite of Sculpin, but that was it. Where was the grapefruit?

After relaxing on the couch for a few minutes, I took another sip. After clearing my palate of the high class frankfurters, I thought, it would come through. Midway through my sip, I started to get disappointed, but then–there it was! The grapefruit is so subtle until the final notes of the aftertaste, and then you can seemingly taste only that.

Final thoughts: Delicious. Where can I find another?
