the old sculpin used to be super fruity I used to huff it at the brewery smelled like tropical

Finally got around to trying this and it's quite tasty, however much fruitier than the normal
Sculpin so something is amiss with the hops. Too much Amarillo maybe? It's a little lighter in

brewed a slight variation of this 2 weeks ago. I skipped the sugar and used Brett B instead

Brett. If you...

I cannot imagine that it won't carbonate. Give it extra time for sure; moderate ABV will slow
