The Brü Revü – Ballast Point Sculpin IPA

The Ballast Point Sculpin IPA is one of the many beers I smuggled back from our recent vacation to San Diego, and another one you cannot get in Texas, for now.  What a spectacular beer! I have read that many consider this the best IPA in the world and I can easily see why.  The Sculpin lets you know you are drinking a damn good IPA without hitting you over the head with a one note hop bomb that wears out your palate.  It starts with a nice dry hoppy bitterness that gives way to a good citrusy bite with a bit of apricot fruitiness.  The strong citrusy aroma and full medium body really round out this top notch beer.  At times the Sculpin begins to delve into double IPA territory which only speaks to its excellence.  It’s unfortunate I was only able to bring back a 6-pack as at this rate they will be gone quickly and desperately missed. 

After the Sculpin, if anyone out there wants to send me other Ballast Point beers to sample I would gladly accept!
