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.

Doften är en riktig humleexplosion när man häller upp denna klara koppar färgade öl. Vitt skum som hänger med ett tag. Även om det är mycket humle i denna finns även malt, beska och en viss sötma där. Grapefrukt, citrus, passionsfrukt, karamell är inslag jag finner. Doft och smak i samma bana. Bra humlebeska! Gillas skarpt. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2011
Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2011. Aroma has a lot of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple and other sweet aromas. Taste has a punch of bitterness but balanced by a heavy malt base with sweetness that rounds the beer off as it goes down.

Bonused from snojerk321. Thanks Torry! Pours clear golden with medium carbonation. Aroma is citrus and the slighest touch of thiol, but not terribly strong. Drinks dry with nice bitterness but not too much flavor. Easy to drink, but not what I had been expecting. Still a well-made beer.

ljstephenson (250) - Enterprise, Alabama, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Dark yellow-orange pour with thin white head. Aroma is strong hops and citrus. Flavor is extreme hops, heavy citrus, light malt. Finish is dry & hoppy, fairly soft mouthfeel. Not as big of a fan of this IPA as others, mostly due to the dry-hop feel to it.

Pours golden with a small white head. Smells of hops and peaches. Tastes of hops, fruit, peaches, and slight bitter. Very refreshing and delicious. Simple but complex.

Tried this with 3 other people. All over the board. One loved it, one hated it and two of us in the middle. Smells and tastes like a citrus bomb with a little bitterness. Surprisingly easy to drink.

Sipping on this one as I type... form a bomber (obtained from foppa78 at DLD - thanks bro!) into my Dogfish Head signature glass. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is solid but doesn’t really blow me away. I’m picking up a bitter citrus almost slightly lemon flavor. Bubbly carbonation rules the palate at first with a more gentle smoothness on the finish. Overall I have to say I was a bit disappointed by this. No doubt it is a great representation of the style, but I just didn’t love it as much as I was hoping I would.
