Let’s face it, fruit infused IPAs are here to stay. Don’t be lulled into thinking that these are the malt liquor hard lemonades that radio ads assault your ears with. When done right, fruit flavored IPAs can be truly incredible. Ballast Point accomplishes this with several of their Sculpin IPAs, including the Pineapple Sculpin. This beer receives a 3.0 on the IPAholic Index (for those not initiated, this is a very high score!) for its superb flavor and balance between hops and fruit. If it weren’t for the hefty price tag, this could easily be a daily drinker!
