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.

I have had this in bottle in Australia many times but having it at the brewery, fresh, on tap is an experience not to be missed. A perfect balance of toasted and bisquity malts to hold the massive hop flavour and aroma. Let it warm and sample it again and its a different beer to be enjoyed. I dont readily give such high score but...WOW! Im coming back to San Diego.

Sculpin? Felt like a pin was stuck in my skull, or not. So I have that going for me. This, while being a naughty little brew still falls well short of the glory and mayhem that Val Blatz can (and will) bring into your home. Would I drink this again? Probably. But, I should not get any bonus points for such an observation, as I am an idiot..or so my wife says. But her judgement is faulty as she was dumb enough to marry me.

A well balanced IPA, if youre looking for something more adventurous then sample the Habanero Sculpin!, Cheers.

Golden-orange color with a sizable head of creamy white foam. The aroma is complex with Valencia orange, apricot, some skunk, a little herbal rosemary, light caramel malt, and a touch of pine. The palate is treated to more prominent notes of caramel and citrus with an easy-going dry pine finish.

LLaurin (455) - Motala, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2016
Orange with light haze and fresh nose of hops and grapefruit. Light bitterness in the taste and some rich fruits. Palate rather longlasting and might bitter.

KW92 (1498) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 18, 2016

Data zabutelkowania: 16.06.2016
AROMAT: Intensywny. Karmelowo-ziołowy (cukierki ślazowe) - typowe dla piw, ktre przebyły długą drogę z Ameryki do Europy. W tle nuty ciasteczkowe oraz cytrusowe.
SMAK: Z początku karmelowo-ziołowe, z czasem dochodzi kontra cytrusowa. Posmak cytrusowy. Goryczka wysoka, zalegająca.
WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, opalizujące. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości.
OGLNIE: To musiało być piwo wybitne...gdy było świeże. Niestety transport w wątpliwych warunkach zrobił swoje.

Draft. Aroma: Citrus with a hint of floral. App: Reddish gold, thin white head. Taste: Very citrusy but balanced. Not super deep though. Long finish. Very good overall.
