Sculpin grapefruit IPA.

Oh my god. New favorite summer IPA!
I only found it at a local watering hole and need to find a local packy that has it. Has anyone found some in Rhode Island?

I like it but it seems girly
Man it up with the habanero sculpin

no way! That beer is as crisp and refreshing as it comes.

Girly is a gansett lemon shandy or a bluemoon with a slice of orange.

The habanero sculpin is one I have not tried but have no desire too. IMHO it's a few notches lower than the gimmicky bacon ale from stone.

Had the Habenero......really didn't do it for me. Tasted good, but didn't need the bite.

It's basically Sculpin that will make you pay in the morning for a good night drinking

I've been drinking it since April and it's become one of my go to beers. I like that it has grapefruit flavor but still tastes like an IPA. It's not too acidic like the shandy's.

I can drink a shandy or two, but they're too acidic. The Sculpin has the grapefruit flavor but it's not overwhelming or acidic.

I got a six pack based on this thread and got another I liked it so much. Nice and clean. Great summer beer.

Found some yesterday at Vickers on Bellevue. Almost fainted at the cash register - $17.00 for a 6 pack! It's good but not worth that much for a 7% ABV beer. I'll just throw some grapfruit rind in my regular IPAs

A cheaper version with a similar grapefruit twinge is the Mayflower IPA. Not as complex or balanced but not bad on draft. Much cheaper by the rack too.

Grapefruit IPA's. Are not for everyone. While I love this beer, it's too expensive. I prefer magic hat electric peel on tap. It's lighter and more refreshing.

Careful with that suggestion. I got no further than the sample.

Its different.
I will have 2 or 3 after making glass all day and I am spent and really thirsty. I find them super refreshing, but I could see that a traditionalist might think that it's too weird.
