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.

Strangely cheesy nose with only a small amount of hoppy freshness coming through. Pours steady gold with a fluffy beige head. The flavour is where it comes into its own - spicy, peppery hops with some melon, some kiwi, some candy and some lemon peel. A bot of paprika and coriander round it off and a big fat buttery mouthfeel provides the balance. Very nice.

BREWMUSKCLES (2646) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2013
golden ale with hues of brown and orange. appealing aroma mainly of pollen, wood and citrus grapefruit that is represented exactly in the taste. some ivy as well, with a moderate body and powerful alcohol that burns or stings a little in the mouth. enjoyed only slightly chilled.

One of the cleanest IPAs on the market. Bottle pours a white fluffy head that sticks around for a bit, and laces well. The flavor is citrus fruit followed with a crisp hop finish. For a 7% ABV IPA this beer drinks like a session beer. It has great drinkability and will kick your d!#k in the dirt if you drink too many. Believe the hype and go buy a six pack.

You cant go wrong with this IPA. Great from start to finish. The citrus is well balanced with the hop. Use this as your standard for comparison.

Bottle from BrewDog Birmingham; clear amber pour thin white head glorious hop aroma at pour, taste doesnt disappoint tropical hop with mango and citrus, perfect level of bitterness, decent body quite viscous mouthfeel, quite high ABV for an IPA.
