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.

Homer321 (2437) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Bomber to the dome. Pours very hazy Orange with a medium to small white pillowy head. Orange is orange zest and fruity. Tate is orange marmalade and jarmy. Very quenching with a light peppery finish with slight warning in the ears. Lots of bt in this one. Or fusels. Hips are pleasant and well done.

Turtles (110) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2015
355ml bottle. Copper colored, clear, nice small bubbles in the glass, medium, high white head. The aroma of grass, cookies and honey. Fresh hoppy taste, fairly light body, smooth in the mouth, sweet notes of orange marmalade and bitter grapefruit peel. A rather dry and bitter finish, meduim long aftertaste. Nice one this!

patricks110 (1856) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Glorious. Pours a glowing orange gold with a thick frothy head of hop based froth. The nose is pure citrus and pine resin with a ton of lemon zest and pineapple. Fruity and sweet with light grapefruit bitterness and caramel malts. Good balance overall with a beauty hop profile that screams fresh.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Orange in color, not much in the way of head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Smooth to drink, bitter at first ending with a taste of pine and citrus.

Poured from a bomber, Copper body with a non-lingering head. Smells of citrus and pine. First notes are sweet to a nice hop bite. Another classic from Ballast Point. The feeling of this beer is heavy IPA due to the malt. Some doubles are easier to "session". Yet again this is not a beer to session, but to enjoy.

Hammy78 (818) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle from my brother in-law. Pours a copper colour, white fluffy head, lots of lacing. Nose is citrus and sweet caramel malt. Tastes sweet initially that quickly gives way to bitterness, lots of citrus, but mainly piney hops. Quite good, most certainly sessionable.
