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.

Many thanks for this beer to CH-303. Szalu ie ma jak na te wysoka ocene. Piana srednia szybko opada, ale oblepia szklo. Barwa pomaranczowa lekko mglista. Aromat silny chmielny troche tropikalne bardzo dojrzale owoce. W smaku owocowo i zywicznie. Na przodzie owoce mango, morela, brzoskwinia i mirabelka, troche tez Physalis. A wszystko zasypane swierzym chyba Amarillo. Bardzo gorzkie piwo. Poczatkowo owocowe potem przeradza sie w extremalna gorycz lubie to. Ale byla tez pewna wodnistosc bo ta chmielnosc na dluzszy czas nie pozostawala.

On tap @ Beer Temple. Clear golden color. Big white head. Aroma’s: resinous, malty sweet. Retronasal there’s sweetness too, with light resinous and floral hops. Flavor is mild, sweetish, light bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes mildly bitter. Another IPA clearly past it’s prime, or it travelled too far. Hope to rerate with a fresh one at some point.

Bottle from systembolaget Östersund. Grapefruit aroma, super bitter but with quite a light finish. Old hops. Strong. It’s a superb IPA but it’s just not really my favourite type of beer with the old hop taste. It grew on me.

Wow, it seems like ever since Ballast Point lost their way with all of those fruit beers, their standard bearer took a dive. This used to be at the top of my list. Now, either everything else has gotten much better or they have forgotten their roots. This beer has a nece nose, hint of pine, but the flavor is nearly all a generic hop. Yes, it is bitter, which I like but all the love is gone. Go back to your peach pineapple fruity etc and leave the real beer brewing to those who now are doing real beers. For shame.

Nic szczególnego. Nie mogę znaleźć daty rozlewu, ale tradycyjnie jako to z IPA by USA (po długim czasie dystrybucji) bywa podejrzewam utlenienie. Dość puste, wodniste z wyraźną ziołowo - grejpfrutową i ciut zalegającą goryczką. Można sobie darować

Szulo (178) - Płock, POLAND - APR 25, 2017
Ładna pomarańczowa barwa, prawie że klarowna. Utworzyła się też spora czapa drobnej piany przy nalewaniu, dosyć trwałej, utrzymuje się do końca picia. W smaku nie ma fajerwerków, ale też nie jest źle, czuć głównie karmelowo słodowe nuty z lekką ziołową kontrą od chmielu. Gorycz bardzo fajna, zostaje przez chwile, nie zalega, w ustach odczucie wysycenia już raczej niskie.

Spodziewałem się ochów i achów a to takie dobre normalne piwo. Bardziej session ipa. Owocowo-ziołowe z nutką żywicy.

Amber colour, medium white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, malt, pine, hops. Sweet lightly dry taste, medium bitterness in finish and aftertaste. Medium body and soft carbonation. Very nice IPA.

Piotrek4 (249) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
W aromacie głównie słodkie owoce, niezbyt intensywne. W smaku lekka podbudowa słodowa, skontrowana solidna grejpfrutowa goryczka. Poprawna, solidna IPA.

Drinking this beer at tivoli in SD. I don't know why the reviews are so hot for this ipa, it seems just mediocre to me.
