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.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Bright orange in color with an average sized white head. Aroma is slightly peppery with lots of grapefruit and orange, light grassiness, and floral notes. Taste is of grapefruit, bitter floral notes and a bit of tropical fruit.

Bottle served in a tulip. Pours hazy bronze with a short+ head. Decent retention and lovely lace. Ohhh the aroma... ahhh the flavor. This is a legend. Beautiful nose of lemon and tart pineapple, with resin, pine, and pale malt. Minimally sweet and plenty bitter though never approaching astringent. Medium body, sticky-thin texture and a very bitter, oily, dry finish.

Beuatiful clear gold pour. Aroma is citrus rind and a little weed. Taste is sweet citrus, a bitter bite and some sour. Nice balance.

Drank from a bottle after a sauna. Fruity, strongly hopped traditional IPA. The taste is a bit sharp but otherwise it’s good.

hfmejias (1297) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured Clear copper color medium head that leaves tons of lacing all over the glass. Aroma is predominantly floral and citrus hops, some fruit in there too. As hoppy as it is is also quite well balanced, good malts backbone with a great and strong bitter finish. Great beer, enjoying the heck out it.

Top end IPA; for sure in my top 5. Treated myself on father’s day to a 6 pack. Did the trick :)

In the bottle in Seoul. Decent IPA, but was overhyped and didn't live up the expectation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPABevyGuy (67) - New York, USA - JUN 26, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Smells like citrus and the taste follows. Very citrus body, followed by pine and earthy on the end. Hops don?t really kick in until the finish. Very well balanced IPA.

4.4
trujahwarrior (515) - Monroe, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into my Ipa glass. Pours a golden amber color with a thick fluffy white head that leaves awesome lacing. Smells of pine, tropical, citrus and floral. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a good hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is silky, creamy and chewy with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. Wow this is one of the best ipas I’ve ever had. Well balanced and full of flavor. Glad this is finally on the Washington State market. Will be buying this regularly.
