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 a clear orange with white head. Aroma or tropical and citrus fruits and some sweet notes. Taste is a nice clean assertive bitterness throughout with a caramel backbone. Pine, grapefruit, mango, and biscuity flavors. Medium bodied. Very well done IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy orange with a creamy off-white head. Nose : Loads of peaches and apricot, enticing. Palate : Medium to full bodied, creamy, refreshing, great bitterness, really bold with grapefruit and tropical fruity hops in dominance. Long lingering fruity bitter finish. Amazing IPA

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2009
Bright amber with a white head. Pure hop goodness in the aroma, tropical fruit sweetness and fresh citrus, far from harsh. Flavour is also very tropical, inviting and clean with a mindblowing hop composition that comes across more as lovely juice rather than hop plants. Body is light and it goes down easily.

bblack99 (527) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bomber from Hy-Vee Liquor (!) in Quincy, IL (!!). Pours a clear golden orange with a windowpane-inducing white head. Aroma is a mix of subtle light-colored fleshy fruits, mostly apricot with a piney backbone. Tastes like a pine cone wrapped in incredibly subtle fruit flavors, and has a surprisingly dry finish. Not too boozy, but the malt characteristics do get crushed a bit by the fruits and hops.

Berard (524) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with white head that dissipates. Piney hop aroma. Nice hop flavor that isn't too overwhelming or boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
