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.

Very good beer, hopped perfectly. It’s what you’d expect from an IPA. If you like hoppy beers, this one’s for you!

ajtrupp (316) - Broomfield, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2015
This is a very bright, solid IPA. Strong citrus notes with a semi dry finish. Theta a reason it’s among the best.

mzaar (2172) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2015
Flaska. En absolut helt fantastisk IPA. Fullsmockad med tropiska frukter (och en del karamell, malt och tallbarr) i såväl doft som smak, med en så perfekt väl avvägd beska/sötma att jag rimligen har svårt att se att det kan bli bättre. Jag ödslar inga fler ord på detta lilla mästerverk, jag har fullt upp med att njuta av det.

Seffle (328) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle from SB 150904. Clear golden amber withe creamy lasting and lacing white head. Powerful citrus and tropical fruit in the nose, not so much resins. Very nice and pleasant bitterness with long aftertaste. Truly nice, but there is a bit to much alcohol breaking through that decreases the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AgentAle (1167) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2015
Aroma is clove, pinecone, honey, lemon grass and sweet lightly roasted malts. Taste is sweet deep roasted malts balanced very well. Finishes surprisingly smooth. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

BillKismet (3562) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Bronzed body with aromas of tropical fruits--pineapple, and guava, wafting of the glass. The body has some resiny touches, but again, the fruity hops are at the forefront.

Saint_Rho (15) - Munich, Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2015
