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.

Bottle, not sure how old this is but enjoy by is Nov 2013. Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber. The initial cm of white head doesnt endure more than 30 seconds. Smell - some tangerine and urine. Body is light and carbonation is medium. Taste - tangerine, astringent resin, lots of pine, an almost meaty finish. Very drinkable. Another American IPA that might not be fresh enough for me to rate fairly, but I can only rate whats in front of me and this one is average at best. I wish I got the mango and peach that other people are getting! Moral - buy local and fresh?

Mycket svag doft. Ren torr IPA med viss metall i smaken..Lagom humlad. . Saknar dock frukt fyllighet fr att bli en perfekt IPA. Svenska bryggare hmta inspiration hr.

Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Nice citrusy ipa that is really crisp and refreshing. Aroma is citrus faint pine with only a hint of grapefruit. Taste is hoppy with lots of citrus and light resin with only a faint undertone of malt flavor. This finish is crisp and good. Wanted to be blown away by this one, but hey its still pretty outstanding!

ExpendableHero (901) - Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Hurricane Wings in Fort Pierce. Hazy golden brew with a white head. Aromas of lemon zest and notes of pine. Tastes of fresh pine needle hops, some grassy notes, and has a refreshing citric bite to it. Almost like some lemonade mixed with the hops. All masterfully balanced by a biscuit-like malt backbone. Very smooth and refreshing. This is delicious.

kevinsenn (2173) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours hazy amber with white lacing. Noseful of all kinds of fruits: dark, tropical, and citrus. Taste is wonderfully balanced: huge fruity and pine hop flavour with a lovely sweetness. Perfect bitter finish that creeps up on you over time. Velvetty smooth mouthfeel. This beer makes me a happy man. Why cant all IPAs be this good?
