Ballast Point Sculpin IPA Beer Review

Sculpin IPA
Ballast Point Brewing Co. – San Diego, CA
ABV: 7.0%

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 4
Sculpin IPA is toting a medium to high carbonation, and it’s a hoppy as all hell IPA, so we don’t recommend chugging it. Did you hear me choke out that rating? That had a lot to do with this being the first chug of the day, but still, this was a struggle. We’ll do the chugging, ok? You just enjoy it
How Much: 5
So a 6-pack of these delicious fish can come swimming into your life for the small price of $13.99. Now, is that a lot of money to spend on a sixer? Yes. Yes it is. But, this has the TeamChug stamp on it, so don’t skimp out here, hombre. Go buy some Sculpin
Uhhh…Taste: 9
There’s a damn good reason Ballast Point has won awards since 2006 with Sculpin IPA…it’s friggin solid gold in a 12oz. bottle. Sculpin is the ultimate definition of a West Coast IPA. You’re getting hit with a fresh grapefruity hop kick that will linger for days, but there’s enough of a sweet caramel malt backing to it to keep you coming back for more, bottle after bottle. Not to mention that you won’t notice that it’s 7% ABV until you’ve only crushed a few but you’re already starting to feel it. Some would claim that it’s overpriced, but this sucker is award winning. Worthy of our money, and worthy of our Stamp of Approval!
Gettability: 7
This is a year-round brew, thank the Lord, and you can find it in 23 states at your finest establishments

Overall Rating:   9.5

Old school jam: Led Zeppelin – Ramble On
