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.

beautiful light aromatic citrus hops. The bouquet of hops is my favorite characteristic-slaps you in the face. Extremely drinkable.

DavidWoodruff (433) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Nice looking slightly hazy orange with decent white head. Aroma is dominated piney/citrusy hops. Flavors are much the same as the aroma. Firm malt body and aggressive, but pleasant, hop bitterness. Great example of a West Coast IPA.

Nice IPA. Aroma is not overpowering, but flavor is good. Nice piney sharpness, citrus. Slightly oily but pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heard rave reviews about this and had to give it a go. Clear, golden pour with a nice, sticky head. Nose is packed with citrus and pine notes. The flavor keeps up where the nose left off, lots of citrus and dry, earthy hops permeating throughout. Canít say Iím disappointed from what I have heard about this brew, it is solid through and through.

IPAs arenít really my thing. This oneís good. It has a nice bitterness thatís a nicely balanced between astringency and citrusy/floral. And at 7% ABV itís not too malty.

On tap. Copper pour, small white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma of grapefruit, a little sour milk. Mild †palette. Dry hoppy finish. Pleasant but didnít knock me off my feet.

Mango, grapefruit, kiwi, sweet resiny aroma. Cloudy honey gold with a thick foamy white head that sticks around for quite a while. Lots of grapefruit. But not so bitter that it's overpowering. This is very well balanced and very smooth. It has a crisp finish but then a bit of an after-warmth in the throat. Pretty good stuff.
