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.

Good beer. Citrus, apricot, pine and honey. Finishes a bit too warm and sticky to make this a truly outstanding beer for me, but I will definitely try another one.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Smells of grapefruit and orange peel. Tastes of a light bitter with a medium sweetness, well balanced but not perfectly. Light bodied. Light carbonation. Texture is syrupy. Finishes dry. Tasty.

Tayeth (512) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2015
Aroma süßlich, mit Pfirsich, weißer Traube und einem Hauch Handseife. Geschmack dann aber im Gegensatz zu vielen IPAs dann aber nicht seifig, sehr fruchtig, ausgewogene Bittere.

Fashawn (512) - 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.

Sampled at SBWF. Stockholm, September 29th, 2011.
Dry and pleasantly hoppy and fresh aroma. Grass, grapefruit and some pine needles. The taste is also quite and and very low on the sweet side - something that I really enjoy. Big hoppy punch with a nice bitter finish. Great IPA!

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2010
22oz bomber thanks to mar (for a great beer!). Pours a clear, deep golden body with some off-white head that leaves lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of Ruby Red grapefruit and other fresh citrus hops. Sort of reminds me of a South Texas fruit stand in the summer. Flavor of citrus hops, grapefruit, pine, floral hops and citrus zest. Medium mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Absolutely great!!
