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.

Alla spina. Una delle migliori IPA assaggiate negli States, aroma di frutta tropicale, freschissima e intensa. Al palato ancora frutta fresca, esotica, pompelmo, kiwi e finale amaro ma non eccessivo.

Extremely floral, loads of citrus but yet very well balanced. Given in trade from Vikingguy - excellent brew - can see why it rates so high. Will search this out!

This is probably my favorite IPA. The taste has a nice hop bite but still with a wonderful full mouth and smooth finish. Yum.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2013
Det hr r bra, otroligt bra, aromen r att d fr och smaken fljer upp smaken p ett exemplariskt stt. Smaken bar toner av grapefrukt, mango och aprikos, kroppen var stabil men balansen gjorde mig lite besviken.

jahshuwuh (567) - USA - SEP 30, 2013
A medium golden color with two fingers of white head. A floral hop scent with something akin to a wood scent, some citrus notes. A carbonated bitter upfront with some spiciness that gives way to a little bit of caramel backbone but not enough for me, bitter lingers on tongue, very little sweet character. Decent but nothing special. Need to try a fresher bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle on September 28, 2013 at ABR. Clear yellow pour with big head and lacing. I am not a huge IPA fan, but this was decent.
