Grapefruit Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Company use to be a bit of a white whale in many states where Ballast Point brews were available but as of lately Grapefruit Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Company seems to become a great deal more readily available to everyone who loves quality IPAs. For those who enjoy Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Company and enjoy the great taste of grapefruits, Grapefruit Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Company is a go to IPA. As you can see they have started moving to cans which is supposedly goof for the environment, chills faster compared to being in a bottle, guarantees no light or oxygen gets in and doesn’t impact the flavor compared to that old metallic some of us remember decades back. Grapefruit Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Company pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice lacy head with a ton of grapefruit aroma and slight hints of pine and other citrus aromas. Of course when taking your first sip you can smell the grapefruit and taste it as it hits you tongue but hops help send it over the top with other hints of citrus, creamy sweet caramel flavors and a solid bite of pine and resin. What is really amazing is with 7% ABV and IBU of 70 plus an almost medium mouthfeel this amazing IPA is actually incredibly easy drinking and one of the best IPAs currently available anywhere in the world according to most review sites and I would have to agree. Grapefruit Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Company should be on every craft beer drinker’s bucket list and it goes without saying it should be in your top 10.Ballast Point Brewing Company makes a lot of great craft brews but in regards to the Scuplin IPA it also comes without the grapefruit although your will still taste and smell it from the hops plus a habanero version that is one of the smoothest IPAs that will light you up with unbelievable amount of heat.
