Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin Coming to Bottles

pineappleBallast Point will continue with another off-shoot of their popular Sculpin IPA by adding Pineapple Sculpin to the lineup joining the likes of Habanero Sculpin and Grapefruit Sculpin. I cannot confirm if Iowa will receive shipments of this beer or when it will be available yet but stay tuned for more on distro news. Here’s more information on this beer courtesy of the folks at Beer Street Journal:

Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin combines the aggressive but balanced IPA with the tropical twist of pineapple. If it is anywhere near as addictive as the Grapefruit edition, warn your liver now.

Our Sculpin IPA is a great example of what got us into brewing in the first place. After years of experimenting, we knew hopping an ale at five separate stages would produce something special. The result ended up being this gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin IPA is a draft, and 12 ounce bottle potential.
