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.

Batch 279, bb June 2014
Golden color, clean, with generous head. Strong hop aroma, fruity and resiny; lemon peel, light pine needles, very light manure; later, some mandarin. Smooth mouthfeel; good toffee flavor, lean, with minimal residual sweetness; the hop is very fruity; the bitterness level high but well blended. Balanced final.
Easily drinkable, fresh, excellent.

Pdubyah (683) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 This is like a comfortable cardigan, a bit thin in places. Draft and highly anticipated and recommend. It is something Id happily drink a lot of in a session. But it is safe. I was expecting something more aggressive, or peaky in the profile, and I got a very very good, easy drinking safe beer. 2nd January I had this again in a bottle. Ive thought about this, and this really is a good beer, and to be enjoyed. I think I was harsh in my previous thinking, lumping this in the pack when its one of the leaders. I gave myself an uppercut.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden orange with a finger of fluffy white head. Upfront aroma of mango, grapefruit and caramel biscuitiness. Fuckin barnstormer. Flavours are textbook - loads of tropical hop flavours, mango and citrus backed with a cracking caramel malt backbone, get a bitta that in ya. Nice present but not overbearing bitterness. Brb getting a carton.
