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.

Danjo312 (107) - Hamburg, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2016
Tolles Bier. In der Nase schön fruchtig, nicht zu tropisch, dafür trotzdem schön reich an süße! Im Glas wunderbar golden, leicht rosé. Leichter, schnell verschwundener Kopf. Schmeckt herrlich herb mit toller Frucht. Süß und lang anhaltend im Abgang. Super Einsatz von qualitäts-Malz! Reicher Körper. Kann ich an warmen Tagen immer wieder schön kühl trinken! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yimisaison (5) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 14, 2016 does not count
Color cobre anaranjado, con espuma blanca grande y persistente. Aromas a frutas tropicales, durazno y maracuyá, productos de los lúpulos, bastante dulce pero balanceado. Sabor increíble: De cuerpo ligero y pegajoso, muy resinoso con un amargor final intenso, que queda después de un buen rato. Excelente cerveza que ya era tiempo de probar, un referente de las IPA.
