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.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a thin head that dissipate fairly quickly. Aroma of apricots and pine with some citrus. Fairly bitter. More apricots in the flavor. Very well balanced beer. Medium bodied. Finishes bitter and dry. A fantastic beer.

Det här är västkustIPA så som det ska smaka. Citrus, tropiska frukter och käftsmällsbeska. En av bästa på systemet just nu. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Købt på systemet :) Lidt opreklameret måske. Herlig duft af citrus, måske den bedste ipa duft? Fin rødgul farve med lidt krone, lidt skum tilbage. Besk smag med ikke så meget frugttoner. Besk eftersmag og igen uden så meget frugt. Ok men ikke den bedste ipa jeg smagt.

Awesome. Citrusy and bold. West coast IPA as it should be. Try this beer and every other will fall short. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Standard Market. Woo, I just found my notes for this sitting on my desk after a few months. Light hazy orange color under a creamy=looking head. Hoppy smell, but not overdone. Taste has a mix of fresh hops, The usual pine, but some tropical fruit backing, like maybe Nelson Sauvin. Malts surround the bitterness and confines it to prickly bubbles.

Bottle from Craft Beer Base. Golden colour with small head. Very hoppy aroma with some pine and herbs. Same when you drink it, very smooth, nice finish.
