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.

On tap at the Brass Tap on Round Rock. Pours a clear deep amber with small white head that leaves some lace. Nice is pine and lemon and grapefruit with some biscuit. Excellent upfront balance of sweet malts and bitterness with a great dry finish. Medium slick body with average carbonation. This is an exceptional example of an Ipa.

TheRealMGD (552) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Bottle from Mcgee Liquor in Tucson. Clear gold pour with a short white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is pine, ganja and some caramel. Medium body with moderate, fine carbonation with a creamy mouth feel. Pine, ganja, caramel, lemon and a hint of orange, pineapple and ethanol. Finish is more bitter, with grapefruit and dendelion. Nice balance for a West Coast IPA, but a bit hot. Sorry, but this one just doesn’t stand out to me.
