Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin now in bottles and cans nationally

Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin

Ballast Point Brewing brews Sculpin, a widely popular IPA. Building on the the popularity and people’s lust for hops, the brewery created two new offerings, Habanero Sculpin, and Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin.

Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin cans have officially come off the line in California, and have hit the brewery’s tap room, and are making their way to markets across the United States.

Our Grapefruit Sculpin is the latest take on our signature IPA. Some may say there are few ways to improve Sculpin’s unique flavor, but the tart freshness of grapefruit perfectly complements our IPA’s citrusy hop character. Grapefruit’s a winter fruit, but this easy-drinking ale tastes like summer.

Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA is brewed with grapefruit juice and available in 12oz bottles, 12oz cans, and draft.

Style: IPA (w/ Grapefruit.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. 12oz Cans (new)
Release: April, 2015 (Cans)

7% ABV
