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.

Can. Grapefruit hop citrus aroma with notes of tropical fruit, apricot, peach, lemon and a bit of pine resiny hop bitterness. Pours orange-amber colored with a large tan head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with bright tropical fruit, apricot and peach flavors with a little bit of lemony citrus. Finishes dry, but fairly smooth with grapefruit hop citrus and acidity and a bit of piney hop bitterness. Excellent IPA.

Even after many years, this is still one of the best west coast IPAs. It has a delectable floral aroma with citrus tornado and the appearance is a bright frisky orange not unlike that furrocious feline Garfield. The taste is a fruity hop bop on the nose with heavy notes of mango, lemon, and a sweet round crunchy bitter backbone. Theres a lot to chew on here and this was one of the first I had that justified the inflated 14-15 a sixer price point. Good for blissing out to some new age synthesizer jams while you wait for your better half to change into something.

Lacks some character in the aroma. But the bitterness is awesome. Strong, present but brief. Great IPA.

poprawna, całkiem przyjazna podniebieniu ipa, pijalna, ale Polacy robią lepsze i znacznie tańsze piwa w tej kategorii. nie warto przepłacać.
