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.

Sem dúvida uma das melhores IPAs que já bebi. Excelente sabor com um frutado bem presente que equilibra muito bom com seu amargor. Uma bela cerveja!

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 On tap in a goblet. Aroma is very citrusy and hoppy. Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Taste hoppy up front with a lingering bite. Average carbonation with a sharp mouthfeel.

Best Ipa i’ve ever tasted. Clean, fresh and perfect. Nice foam retention, brilliant and a really strong hop aroma. Perfectly balanced.

Going public and near. They will do well this beer kicks butt. Citrus and stone fruit aroma in the best way. Flavor of nice light malts and super fresh clean hops and great clean bitterness. One on best IPAS in the best place for IPAs San Diego.

22 oz bottle. Poured a some kind of dark gold, but clear with a smallish head that dissipated rapidly. The aroma escapes me but there is no mistaking the potent bite of this fish! If you don’t like strong tasting left coast IPA’s you better stay away. In a place where a good IPA is hard to come by (Maui) this is a real treat.

One of my favorite IPA’s, especially on tap. Dark amber/orange pour with a substantial white head. Tropical fruit and hop aroma. Same taste, extremely well balanced with well hidden alcohol.

Flaska från SB. Klar orange med fingertjockt vitt skum. Tydlig doft av citrus och exotisk frukt. Ganska tunn kropp, något torr. Inleds med citrustoner för att övergå i kraftig, något sött och fyllig beska som blir kvar hängandes en bra stund. Bra dos av tallbarr, maltsötma och kåda. En IPA som varit hypad ett tag nu. Druckit den några gånger, men tycker den är olika varje gång. Inte helt förstått hypen (ännu).

VeinAle (124) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Pours gold, smells of sweet citrus and earth. Taste is more bitter than sweet, with a dry finish. Overall a good one to try!

Aroma is very citrus sweet grapefruit hopy floral cascade I also get some sort of sweet peach or apricot. Pours a copper color with lots of creamy off white foam. Leaves some lacing and has quit a bit of carbonation. Taste is sweet at first lots of grapefruit little malt and pine. Sits a little bitter towards the end. Some floral tones as well. Overall this is an amazing beer wish I could buy it for my every day beer. Damn it’s good! Thank you Brian.

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours a golden orange color with a finger length off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Smells of peach, mango, grapefruit, like an apricot, resin. Nice carmel malt backbone to it. Taste starts and finishes with lots of peach or apricot. Also starts with some mango and grapefruit. Slight bitterness. Then a good amount of carmel and bready malt shine through to balance it. The finish is a nice combination of fruity flavors from the hops: lots of apricot or peach, get some lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, maybe some other tropical fruits. Medium body with a good amount of carbonation that gives it a refreshing finish. A creamy and resinous mouthfeel. A very balanced, flavorful, and drinkable IPA.
