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.

Malrider69 (240) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 Pours a straw colour with thin white coloured head. The aroma is of freshly cut grass and the taste is very strongly of pine resin which extremely long-lasting on the palate. Overall a reasonably good quality beer.

SloaneRanger (270) - - JAN 3, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2020 Kirkkaan kuparinen lasissa korkeahkolla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on sitrusta, persikkaa ja pihkaista mäntyisyyttä. Mausta löytyy suussa kosketeltavaa kitkeryyttä, sitrusta ja kuohkeaa pihkaisuutta. Pullote alkoi olemaan ikänsä lopussa, joten makumaailma ei ollut enää täysin terässä.

4.3
jarvo (511) - Abingdon, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2020 Clear amber with a big white head that gives way to lacing. Aroma full of peaches and tropical fruit. Taste a wonderful hop explosion, peaches, mango, apricot, chewy resin, deliciously bitter. Nice soft mouthfeel. Classic.

Dacrza (1358) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2019 DATE: December 29, 2019... OCCASION: two days from The Rise of Skywalker, we continue preparing with Return of the Jedi... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... the very picture of the genre: a golden amber body, busy as a city with its active effervescence, building a finger's worth of thick clumps of snow white head... this sits nobly and staunchly for the duration of the drink... lemon, grapefruit and mango build a tropical profile, with pineapple and aromatic flowers creating an inviting allure... its secondary scents include sweet bread malts and light peppery spiciness... its body is hearty, smooth and agreeable... at 7% ABV, it finds the sweet spot between drinkable and weighty, drawing heavily on the back end while biting at the teeth with a robust presence... the crunch and chewiness requisite to an IPA is also on full display here--again, if an alien asked what a good west coast IPA was, this is what you would hand it... pineapple, lemon, mango, and citrus fruits collide in a crunchy, resinous drip... strong presence of toasted malts make this a balanced affair--or as balanced as this hop-heavy ale could be... the pepper makes this a bit more nuanced as well... considering its weight and flavor, this could be an every night beer... planning for a gluten-free January, this was one I found hard to believe that I had not sipped it for posterity here.... thanks to Dave and Jen, another great one crossed off the list...

peradon_charoenchainetr (8) - Bangkok, THAILAND - DEC 19, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2019 Amber color after poured. Medium to large head. A good amount of aroma. A really good balance of the flavor, a little bit of sweetness at first. Full in the mouth, not dry finished. Really good IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2019 From the end of corporate hell event. Using precise language, this beer is incredible.

3.8
downender (10312) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2019 ON tap at Velocity Wings, Sterling VA. Golden in colour, with a tight, white, head. Tangerine and pineapple fruit citrus hops, some biscuity malts, a hint of pine and dry finish. Very good.

3.8
HippyHop (1151) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2019 On tap. Nice, though subtle, tropical/peachy hops, with lots of piney hop resin. Chewy malt, pretty bitter finish. Probably the best thing I'll find on tap in a Vegas casino.

LocalMuse25 (133) - Templestowe, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2019 Certainly one of the best basic IPAs on the market. Full bodied, nice citrus, honey and hoppy goodness. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Can never stop at 1!
