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.

22oz. thanks to Dunk. I think I actually drank this one right out of the bottle. Flavor was citrus, piney, and sweet malt. Nice body and easily one of the best drinking IPAís out there.

Bomber, thanks to WeeHeavySD for this one. Pours a light orange color with a nice foamy head, I could smell the citrusy hops the moment I cracked the cap, but it smells like a grapefruit in the glass. The taste is a little bit more subtle than I expected, not as much bitterness, just a LOT of hop flavor and aroma. A tasty brew. Thanks Jon!

Poured from bottle, pale slightly hazy amber with high head. Aroma with notes of fruit, citrus, pine and some bread. Taste is mild bitterness backed up by a very well balanced malt body and leading to a subtle but long bitter finish. The geatness of this beer is in the balance, nothing really sticks out bit the way it comes together is just heavenly...

Violence! Itís like electricity in a glass. Itís all sharp edges, but still pretty easy to drink. Very very hoppy. Thatís really all I have to say. Itís pretty good though.

Aroma fake orange, Appearance orange, clear, white foam, Taste light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium bitterness, Palate medium body, Overall to me there is a unnatural orange flavor that is not doing it for me. I am a fan of the grapefruit and pineapple but not this one. I would not suggest this beer to a friend.

pet3rman (375) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Near perfect IPA. Pours golden with a big creme head. Aroma is overwhelmingly apricot. Sweet peach, apricot and hops. Bitter hoppiness hits you quick. Slight alcohol burn with nice lasting bitter dryness.

Orange klar im Glas, leichter weiße schaum, grassig fruchtig hopfig in der Nase, unglaublich ausgewogen, angenehme bittere bei sehr guten Körper (nicht zu leicht, nicht zu schwer), lang anhaltende Bittere, sehr schöne IPA

Bottle. Lots of sweet and fresh grass hops, sweet hop taste, crisp but lingering bitter on palate, and a light amber. Great IPA but it seems everyone already is aware.
