San Diego IPA
The Sculpin IPA is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. Founded in 1992, the Mart continues to be a catalyst for the San Diego brewing scene, setting the trend for handcrafted ales. Inspired by our customers, employees and brewers, the Sculpin IPA is bright with aromas of apricot, peach, mango and lemon. Its lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops. This delicious Ballast Point Ale took a Bronze Medal at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival in the Pro Am category. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on its fins that can give a strong sting. Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin is considered some of the most tasty. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.

Malt aroma w/hints of mango. Taste has bitterness, followed by malt, followed by hop taste of orange/grapefruit awesomeness. Carbonation is a little much on the tongue. Color is yellow with orange hues and is brilliantly clear.

Welley_Alves (228) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 3, 2013
Essa maravilhosa breja é uma imperial IPA da cervejaria artesanal Ballast Point. Cor amarelo-ouro, com media formacao de espuma e excelente aroma cítrico, floral. No paladar, um bom corpo, com perfeito equilíbrio entre amargor e dulçor. Na boca, lembra manga, grapefruit, abacaxi, maracujá. Na seqüência o amargor entra, de forma estúpida! Final seco com retrogosto lembrando resina e pinho. Excelente! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scrapersnbeer (1530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2013
Aroma of dank fruits and sweet fruity malt as well. Crisp looking orange color, not quite clear. It’s very bitter, yet has lingering sweet tropical fruit flavors all around. Heavier body, packs a wallop, but is well balanced and approachable for a heavy duty IPA. I’ve never eaten a sculpin, although it looks interesting.

Aroma is tropical citrus, mango and peach. It appears to be golden with ample white head that leaves distinct lacing. Very smooth taste of vivid citrus. Back end bitterness, exceptionally drinkable. Bight and balanced on palate. Pretty amazing ipa.
