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.

Samuel214 (123) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2015
Flaska från SB. Klar orange med fingertjockt vitt skum. Tydlig doft av citrus och exotisk frukt. Ganska tunn kropp, något torr. Inleds med citrustoner för att övergå i kraftig, något sött och fyllig beska som blir kvar hängandes en bra stund. Bra dos av tallbarr, maltsötma och kåda. En IPA som varit hypad ett tag nu. Druckit den några gånger, men tycker den är olika varje gång. Inte helt förstått hypen (ännu).

hohops (605) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Appearance is hazy amber, with a thick creamy beige head, which clings to the glass. Aroma- orange, pineapple, creamy malt, tropical fruit juice, pine, hop resin. Yum. Taste- massive hop bitterness, orange peel, pineapple, juicy tropical fruit, pine, grapefruit, hop resins. Huge bitter fruit, but also there’s biscuity malt underpinning the whole thing. Mouthfeel is oily and clingy, hugely long bitter finish. Superb IPA.

Can. Pours copper with a thick head. Big grapefruit aroma. Citrus flavor up front but balanced well with malt throughout.

laakus (77) - Nossebro, - OCT 30, 2015
Systembolaget. Best before 2016-06-16. Amber color with a minimal head. Pine, cytrus dominates the aroma. Well balanced though a bit sweet. Though this is a great IPA I doubt this is the top notch example of a bottle as the hops feels a bit tired.

djoeye (2750) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2015
Look; off white short lived head, deep golden body, clear, near amber. Aroma; tropic fruits, hops, citric peels. Taste; bitter peaches, citric peels, hops, juicy roasted malts - leading to a juicy roasted malty finish in the peels of tropic fruits. On palate good n juicy with soft carbonation. Overall; solid tropical IPA. [35.5cl btl, abv7.0%, B@Systembolaget Kiruna SE]

Mmmmmmm been wanting this for a while, can’t wait. Taste yummy and perfect. Big blast of citrus, nice and malty, lemon lime, orange, finishes with bitter caramel. Shit dam fuck is this drinkable, so slamable. Finishes so clean. Bitter lingers. Simple high quality shit.

HippieFee (223) - - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle - Mild taste on the palate, sorta refined. Not a strong bit from the hops, rather subtle bitterness in fact. Very fruity flavors from the hops.
