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.

This is my favorite IPA. I love Heady Topper, 90 Minute, etc., but this is as good as a beer gets, in my opinion. So great! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an amber color with soapy white head. Aromas of lemon and apricot. Not very strong hop smell on the nose. Tastes of apricot and piney hops coming through with some if the malt flavors being picked up. A little heavy on the mouth feel. Not a bad IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Sour and fruity aroma. Surprisingly fresh at first but then the aromas of the hops strikes and the palate lasts for a long time. Probably the best IPA I have had!
