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.

A - pale yellow. Ar - Peaches, mangoes, limes, lots of fruity lusciousness. T - Delicate but with a lovely hop balance. Superb. Shows how big hop beers don’t need to be massive malt monsters, but can show poise and verve. Awesomely good beer

True to the label, notes of apricot, peach, mango and lemon are detected in the aroma. There is something floral going on as well, which really elevates my olfactory enjoyment. It pours golden with a textbook soapy IPA head. The taste is very well balanced, not too bitter that it overwhelms the palate. It is a bit thin for the style, but not enough to be penalized. Sculpin is a damn fine American IPA, and should be sampled if you have an opportunity.

Orange beer with a medium foamy white head that is actually pretty dense. Citrusy nose with grapefruit, orange, peach, and pear. Flavor has a bracing hop bite with some bright fruit notes reminiscent of the nose with the addition of some pine resin and pith, but overall it’s not really that bitter for an IPA. I would have liked a little more prominent malt profile to balance it out a bit. Still, it’s a refreshing, drinkable beer that is certainly worth your time.

Pours hazy golden color with medium tight white head that laces all the way down. Aroma is sweet juicy flowery hops. Taste is dank hoppiness with biting grapefruit citrus and a nice malty backbone. Follow through is dank bitter hoppiness that lingers nicely in the aftertaste. Overall this is a very well balanced IPA.

Bottle: sets the standard for an IPA whether west coast or not. Golden straw colored appearance. Fruity aroma and a taste that wonderfully balances sweetness and hops! Gold medal at my house! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
