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.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Pours a nice clear amber with a finger of head. Crisp hoppy aroma and taste. Touch of bitterness. Good, everyday IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Burk på bishop. Brunröd med mycket vitt skum. Kryddig humledoft. Lätt metallisk smak med lite fruktighet som försvinner fort.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is dank, sweet tropical fruit, some malt, delicious. Appearance is gold-orange, opaque, white head. Taste is bitter, lemon tea flavor, bitter hops, piny, balanced. Mouthfeel is decent, crisp, decent carbonation, not too bad. Overall, it’s pretty good but I expected more.

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.

The aroma had big grapefruits, and oranges w/ slight pine notes. The beer poured a yellow color w/ gold highlights; slight head and thin lacing. The flavor had grapefruits, oranges, pine and a very slight hint of flowers. The mouthfeel was light bodied and crisp, really good carbonation.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Rich, yet with so much balance. Very complex... Herb, concentrated citrus, tropical fruits... Bitterness definitely in control. Big and smooth, without being heavy and sticky. Long lingering finish. An impressive IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Tap takeover at Original Gravity during SF beer week. Pours half way between gold and orange. Loads of grapefruit. Orange. Bitter grapefruit and rind hops. Aroma is the same. There seems to be some peach in both the aroma and the flavor.
