COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Bottle. Light, clear, golden color with a massive off-white head. Nose is hoppy and spicy, abundant grapefruit and pine notes with lighter notes of peach, caramel, and grass. Medium to full body with a sticky mouth feel and good carbonation. Flavor is slightly sweet and herbal, up front I get lemon peel, grapefruit, and pine resin, there is a good amount of bitterness but it is a bit aspirin like and stays with you for a long time. Pale biscuity malts are present but don’t do too much to balance the beer out. Secondary notes of toffee, grass, and spice. Finishes aggressively bitter.

LetsGoState (742) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Appearance is orange with a medium white head. Aroma is strong floral hops. Taste is similarly floral hops with a good bite of bitterness. IPA isn’t my style, but this is one of the better ones out there.

It has a dark golden color with a nice head. Aroma is tropical fruit with some floral notes. Taste has citrus with pine. The bitterness definitely comes through in the finish.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2010
From a bottle. Golden orange in color with a small white head. Big citrus fruit aroma. Orange, grapefruit, some sweeter fruit like peach jolly ranchers. Flavor is sweet with caramel malt and some peach that lead to a slightly bitter finish. Some lemon is present in the finish, too. This is fairly easy drinking due to it being only lightly bitter.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bomber. Looks like a perfect IPA, and smells as good as any beer I’ve ever had. Just filled the room with delightful hop smells. It’s crisp, piney, and delicious with a fairly long finish. I enjoyed every drop of this great beer, but I can’t say it’s worth the extremely high price tag when there are other great IPAs available for a fraction of the price.

gueuze (730) - - AUG 17, 2015
Farbe goldig, trüb. Geruch fruchtig, mit Mango. Dazu Kräuterhopfen. Im Geschmack leicht restsüß. Zum Ende bitter, aber nicht zu bitter. Leicht mehlige Textur, aber das liegt an der Hopfenmenge. Sehr gut.

RhetoricalAns (729) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
650 mL bottle. Clear gold pour, tall white head, good lacing. Big citrus aroma, mild cereal malt notes. Taste is very well balanced, lots of citrus, mainly orange and a long lasting bitter finish. Great IPA.
