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.

Tap, Auckland, NZ. Pours golden peach, creamy white head. Nose is ripe stone and tropical fruit (pineapple), sweet malt. Body is light to medium. Sweet but dry, citrus and refreshing. Citrus lingers on palate, easy drinking

22oz bottle from Craft Shack online.Light amber pour with one finger of head. Aroma of fruity hops. Taste is balanced hops with great bitterness. Overall a well balanced IPA, good all around.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 This is like a comfortable cardigan, a bit thin in places. Draft and highly anticipated and recommend. It is something I’d 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. I’ve 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 it’s one of the leaders. I gave myself an uppercut.

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.

Heady citrus, tropical hops aromas. Pineapple/mano/peach flavors, a hop festival in your mouth, very smooth and addicting, a great hop elixir @[email protected]

Bottle. Pours clear pale orange with a thin white head that disappears quickly leaving decent lacing. Light aromas of caramel, oranges, hay and pine. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, oily texture, medium sweet, brief finish. I think it’s a bit overrated.

Wonderful aroma of caramel and a subtle but profound hoppyness. Quite balanced but nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pineapple hops, pungent and pleasant aroma, and clear as a bell liquid gold. Smooth going down, fruity and bitter at the same time. Might be my favorite IPA, or more accurately, my favorite that I can regularly get at the store. Great stuff.

Drack denna öl för kall första gången och var inte alls imponerad. Nu drack jag den något varmare och fick en smakupplevelse i gengäld. Härlig doft, kompakta balanserade smaker och en påtaglig beska som sitter kvar länge. Mkt bra öl kort sagt.

Ren, oväntat liten humlearom med en touch av gräs och kolasötma. Tydligt fruktiga toner också av framför allt aprikos. Disig brygd med en lite tråkig guldorange färg. Skummet halveras för snabbt men har en trevlig konsistens. Viss komplexitet i smaken med aprikos, och en lätt nötig malt som dominerande element. Humlen visar framför allt upp talltoner och en mjuk, framväxande beska. Rund, halvfyllig kropp med en len konsistens. En intressant IPA, full av hantverkskvalitet, men som ändå inte lever upp till de högt ställda förväntningarna.
