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.

Tognetta (493) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 12, 2015
Alaranjada/dourada, boa formação de espuma (branca) e boa retenção. Aroma bastante floral, frutas tropicais amarelas, maracujá, abacaxi, no ponto exato, sem exageros. Paladar de amargor médio, baixo dulçor, floral aparece com mais persistência do que no aroma, refrescante. Corpo leve e carbonatação média. Aftertaste novamente lembra frutas amarelas, amargor médio de boa duração, levemente seca ao final. Uma ótima e bem equilibrada IPA, sem a complexidade de algumas boas imperiais, é para beber várias.

This IPA pours golden orange with a bit of haze and minimal head. Aroma is phenomenal with loads of hoppy citrus, apricot, and mango. Taste is moderately sweet, sticky, with a long lasting bitter aftertaste. Medium body and crisp finish.

dlihcsnatas (492) - Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Hazy orange brew with small fast fading head. Aroma is very citrusy and the taste is as well. Has so much of a grapefruit twang to it that I had to double check the label to make sure this was the regular IPA and not the grapefruit one. Only down side to this brew is the price. I have been looking at it on the shelves for some time but just couldn’t see buying a 6 pack for nearly the cost of a 12 pack of other good IPA’s. Luckily found some Ballast Point brews on the sampler shelves this weekend at $2.69 a bottle. This one is good but still not worth the hefty price.

Fashawn (492) - Montesarchio, ITALY - MAY 23, 2015
Aroma elegante e pulito, di aghi di pino, frutta tropicale, un pelo di pompelmo ed un filo di caramello. Ambrata carica con schiuma compatta e persistente. In bocca base lieve di pane dolce, frutta esotica, dolce, pompelmo, ed un bel finale agli aghi di pino. Carbonatazione media, quasi liscia, bel retrogusto sempre agli aghi di pino e pompelmo. Invoglia alla bevuta, corpo lieve. Ottima.

Bomber bottle. The aroma is hoppy, but with some malt in there. I'm guessing cascades. The appearance is light bronze with good lacing. The taste is a hoppy citrus that is refreshing. The palate is good for an ipa. Overall, a good, balanced ipa. Will buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - DEC 19, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 22 oz. bottle shared with DuffmanSW while brewing a Centennial single-hop IPA. Pours a clear bronze/copper with low carbonation and a small off-white head with decent lacing. Light bready malt aroma with an abundance of citrusy/pine hops typical of the west coast style. Initial flavor mimics the aroma, light maltiness with lingering bitter/dry hop finish. Light to medium palate with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. From beginning to end, it’s really all about the hops.

SHANER4 (487) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2015
On tap - nice golden copper color and good head retention. Aroma - nice balance of citrus and some sweet malt. Taste - very nice hop profile, mostly citrus and some pineapple. Palate - easy drinking beer. Goes down very smooth with no aftertaste. Overall - great tasting IPA. First beer from BP and very satisfied!

Cimbasso (486) - - JAN 27, 2015
Sampled on draught at a bar in Las Vegas. Light orange/yellow colour with a white head. Aromas of fruit, and a flavour of apricots, oranges and lemons. There is also a very dry, almost astringent taste of grapefruity hops. A nicely bitter, well-made IPA in the American style.

Garbageman (485) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2013
From tap at Keg Cowboy. Pours deep orange in color with a small white head that lingers. Aroma is all citrus with grapefruit, passion fruit and bread. Taste follows with a lite body and smooth end. Not too bitter. Also this is a fruity IPA not Piney.

On tap at Pizzeria Azzurri. Clear copper pour with a thin frothy white head. Nice thick lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, sweet malts, citrus, and pine. Oily body, light carbonation, and medium bodied. Light and refreshing. Tastes just like it smells. Tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, caramel malts, pine, citrus, and a hint of tobacco on the backend. Dry hoppy finish. Nicely balanced.
