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.

Pours into glass a hazy amber/orange, with minimal white head that fizzes away within a minute. Almost no lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, hops. Very pleasant. Really pleasant, heavenly mouthfull of citrus hops, grapefruits, pineapple all swirling on the tongue complimenting each other. With a medium body, this is good stuff. Fantastic. A great example of the great West Coast IPA. Look forward to more.

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!

Pours golden. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops and good amount of bitterness. Palate is a bit fizzy, but smooth finish that leaves bitterness on the tongue. Easy drinking IPA that would be great on a hot day.

From a can. Pours a light amber-orange and makes a nice white head. Smells of toffee and light caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, citrus, and hops. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Welley_Alves (215) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 3, 2013
Essa maravilhosa breja é uma imperial IPA da cervejaria artesanal Ballast Point. Cor amarelo-ouro, com media formacao de espuma e excelente aroma cítrico, floral. No paladar, um bom corpo, com perfeito equilíbrio entre amargor e dulçor. Na boca, lembra manga, grapefruit, abacaxi, maracujá. Na seqüência o amargor entra, de forma estúpida! Final seco com retrogosto lembrando resina e pinho. Excelente! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bursting with citrus and pine aroma. Pours a deep golden color with generous white head. The taste is bitter but opens up to some sweeter tropical flavors towards the end. This beer is so good, I feel lucky to be able to drink it.

Drank from a bottle after a sauna. Fruity, strongly hopped traditional IPA. The taste is a bit sharp but otherwise it’s good.
