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.

temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Had this on tap. Really solid IPA. Dry and piney. Decent bitterness. Not much malt, which I like. I could a lot of this brew. As far as IPA goes this one fits the bill for me.

Hanoi (803) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle. Nose is bright summery; peach, mango, lychee, sweet floral note. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, spruce, onion, very light resin the bitterness comes from the emerging grapefruit rind. A little to fizzy for me. It’s a class leading American IPA.

nogva (75) - NORWAY - JUL 21, 2015
Pours a clear orange with a modest white head, which just looks really inviting. Deliciously hoppy aroma of apricot, lemon zest and pine with something resembling melon. Medium body, oily feel, avg/soft carbonation. Taste of grapefruit and hop resin. Bitter and dry finish that envelops the entire mouth for quite some time.
