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.

Apperance orange, slightly hazy. Lots of hops in the aroma, tropical fruit. Fantastic balance between fruitiness, sweetnes and bitterness. This is one of the classical west coast ipa’s and still one of the very best.

I’m not always a fan of IPAs particularly as American brewers have taken to trying to make them as bitter as possible but this is very tasty. Great summer ale with fruit aroma and crisp citrusy taste with a great hoppy fade.

tricksta_p (4632) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2017
Bottle from a gas station near Reno, Nevada. Aroma is juicy hops, intense tropical fruits, grapefruit, soft biscuity malt, citrus, orange, some pine resin. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a firm bitter finish. Body is medium. Amazingly balanced hoppy fruits basket, one of the finest if not the finest well-rounded example of the style I’ve enjoyed.

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Prachtige IPA: bitter, hoppig, fruitig, sterke, volle smaak. En een lange bittere fruitige nasmaak. Topper!
