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.

Surpringly light. The gold of a rich lager. Nice maltiness. Malt lingers. Hop bitterness is aggressive but not harsh. Very good.

Bottle from DandyWolfFloyd, thank you sir! Pours a slightly hazy golden hue with a white head. Aromas of citrus peel and some nice floral notes. Flavor is grapefruit peel at first with a nice resinous hop character in the finish. This beer deserves the reputation it has for sure. A very nice hoppy IPA. Definitely interested in trying others from this brewery!

Summer Beer Dabbler 2014. I don’t know how I missed this beer for so long. Good, sweet malt. Bitter hops with flowers, citrus, and some pine. Thick palate for the style.

6-pack from Applejack. Golden orange and clear appearance with medium-sized, lingering white head. Citrus, tropical fruits, floral notes and light earthy tones. Crisp, fresh, hoppy and easy to drink. Top notch IPA.

Beaver (1363) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours clear light copper orange with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet fruity piney hops. It’s a bit subdued.

The flavor is sweet bready malts and a little fruit with big piney peppery hops and a dank finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very nice IPA. It reminds me of Odell’s IPA but is a bit pricier.

courtesy of fiulijn - hazy reddish-orange beer with a poor head retention; solid aroma of oranges and grapefruit; full-bodied, juicy and very tasty; a solid bitterness and quite dry; long and very fruity hoppy finish (tangerines and oranges)- clean and straightforward
