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.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 The aroma is tangy with lots of fruit, like grapefruit and banana. The taste is sweet and strong with hops. Very well balanced West coast IPA.

This beer pours out a pale orange with a white head and lots of bubbles. Aromas of weed, grapefruit, and alcohol. I like the flavor a lot more, waves of every kinds of citrus fruit I can think of. Some sweet and slightly bready malt lies underneath. There is a lingering orange zest and bitter aftertaste. Delicious and refreshing, it showcases what you can do with hop aromatics and flavors over hop bitterness.

Fat på Monks. Ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar mango och nätmelon. Wohoo vilken beska! Mycket besk med stor sötma och fruktighet. Välbalanserad. Ruggigt bra ipa!

Love this one. Amazing appearance. Golden orange with aroma of toffee and alcohol. Body is super light. Bright fruity notes with bitter backbone and alcohol burn. Near perfect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - APR 27, 2007
On tap at the Linkery, Sweet and bitter with lots of citrus and slight pine. It has a caramel/honey backbone that comes with a hearty dose of malts to balance the big hop kick. Very clean and fresh, its actually between a double and a regular IPA. Very tasty a fruity finish.

Best aroma I’ve had since Hopslam. Big grapefruit bitterness and piney hops. The foam is filmy and clustery, like sea foam. Nice oily finish. Really good, I hate I’m heading home away from this!

22oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow with an orange tint and a medium white head. Aroma is fantastic of apricots, pineapple, grapefruit, lemons, and hops. Flavor is lemons, pineapple, grapefruit and pine. Medium body with a little heat. Great IPA.

Bottle but drank from a mug. Unfortunate. Great beer. Aroma is citrus sweet. Fruity ipa, but stays true to hop heavy ipa style. Finishes nice

Lots of grapefruit in this one. Bitter citrus hops, caramel, orange, tart fruit and pine with undertones of bread. Well balanced and a dry finish. Lives up to its reputation as a world class IPA
