Ballast Point is one of the biggest breweries in San Diego and it recently sold for an amazing 1 billion dollars! Their best selling beer is Sculpin IPA, so naturally they tried to spice it up with variations of it. One of the biggest successes: Grapefruit Sculpin.
San Diego, CA
Appearance: From the bottle, this beer pours a copper color and is clear with a thick head.
Smell: It gives off a fruity and piney aroma. The grapefruit, citrus, and hops are very detectable and enjoyable.
Taste: It starts off with a taste of grapefruit and ends with a bitter, hoppy note. Overall, a perfect balance of fruitiness and hoppiness that makes it a very easy IPA to drink.
Mouthfeel: This beer has a bitter kick at the end and medium carbonation, which makes each sip crisp and dry. The grapefruit makes it smooth and refreshing.
Overall: Imagine the summer sun on a tropical island. That’s basically what Ballast Point bottled when they made this beer. This beer is dangerous. The grapefruit balances out the hops perfectly and you will forget you are drinking a 7% ABV beer. It’s smoothness and refreshing qualities make it perfect for a person just getting into IPAs.
