Year of New Beer: Grapefruit Sculpin, Ballast Point Brewing (CA)

Written By: Dion on 10/12/2015

Couldn't seem to locate a date code on this, which might explain the less than anticipated results. Expecting to be punched in the face with the essence of grapefruit, what I got instead was very muted, with additional tangerine and caramel notes. On the tongue, traces of honey are layered over a very mild hop bitterness and fruit sweetness. Finished juicy and sticky. Good beer, it just lacks the citrus acidity for which I was hoping.
