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.

Tap, ADT. Pours clear golden range with a sticky off-white head. First thing is citrus hops, grape, orange, tangerine, peaches, pine, resin, caramel malt. Nice oily texture. Long bitter citrus finish makes this tough to set down. Lots of hops, but nicely balanced. Really good.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Amazing beer. Good taste. Nice alcohol percentage. This beer is available now in New Zealand which is excellent. I originally enjoyed it in California so I am very happy it is here. However it is quite expensive which is not the fault of the manufacturer rather the import costs.
