What the brewers say

"With Aloha Sculpin, we used Brux Trois yeast to turn our award-winning IPA into a tropical oasis, with bright and refreshing notes of mango, pineapple and guava, along with a slight haze and smooth mouthfeel."

What our panel thought

Aroma: "Sweet candy hops with a bit of piney hop aroma mixed in. Also a bit of lemon pledge chemically aroma as it warms. And then some onions appear."

Flavor: "Moderate malt flavor where hops should be. strong crystal malt flavor leaning towards a metallic note. There is a slight cider character as well that gives the beer a light acidic / sour character"

Overall: "This is very malt forward, has a candy metallic malt character."
