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.

Mycket svag doft. Ren torr IPA med viss metall i smaken..Lagom humlad. . Saknar dock frukt å fyllighet för att bli en perfekt IPA. Svenska bryggare hämta inspiration här.

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 it’s still pretty outstanding!

This is a fantastic beer. Powerful aroma of sweet citrus hops and floral hops.

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.

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 can’t all IPAs be this good?

Bottle at Bishops Arms in Örebro and also later on through a friend. Hoppy and fruity smell, very fresh. Very fruity taste with tropical fruits, mango and similar. Awsome beer. Very easy to drink. One of the absolutely best IPA:s I’ve had.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2015 On tap at Blue line Pizza. Pours golden with an off white head. Aroma of push, tangerine, some pungent hop and malt. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some orange, floral and pungent hop. Medium body, average carbonation.

On tap. A lightly hazy dark golden beer with a reddish hue. A finger thick white head leaves curtains. The aroma is certainly peachy, with pine cones and a little malty touch. Some sweetness in the flavor, well balanced by the bitterness. The bitterness wins... peaches and pine cones too. Full body, soft carbonation, slightly warming. Bitter and fruity finish. Quite lovely this one. 130808
