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.

Marstonlad (955) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle at WilliamK, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a big frothy head. Aroma is rich in tropical fruitiness; peach, passion and orange mix, also some pine and floral notes. Taste is initially sweet, but hoppy bitterness appears in the middle and the finish is typically dry and very bitter. Rich exotic fruitiness dominates the taste with at least peach, apricot and mango featuring with the usual citrus. The palate is medium bodied and slick. Overall this is a very rich and varied IPA with strong tropical fruitiness.

PapaVillum (955) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2016
Kobberfarvet amerikansk IPA med 3 cm stor offwhite skumkrone. Denne svinder til kant samt overflade. Klar/filtreret og rolig. Humlearoma domineret af grapefrugt og harpiks. Senere fremkommer noter af appelsin. Frisk og dyb bitterdomineret smag balanceret med mindre sødme. Malten som sætter sødmen i smagen gør øllet meget vel balanceret. Mundfølelsen er frisk og sprød med en middel karbonering. Mellem fyldig krop og olieret konsistens. Smagen afsluttes bittert og kort. Overall: Meget velsmagende og straight-forward IPA. Sculpin kunne jeg altid have liggende klar. 355 ml, flaske, 7.0 % ABV, BB: ikke oplyst, købt i Systembolaget ved Triangeln i Malmö. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 12, 2015
Alaranjada/dourada, boa formação de espuma (branca) e boa retenção. Aroma bastante floral, frutas tropicais amarelas, maracujá, abacaxi, no ponto exato, sem exageros. Paladar de amargor médio, baixo dulçor, floral aparece com mais persistência do que no aroma, refrescante. Corpo leve e carbonatação média. Aftertaste novamente lembra frutas amarelas, amargor médio de boa duração, levemente seca ao final. Uma ótima e bem equilibrada IPA, sem a complexidade de algumas boas imperiais, é para beber várias.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2011
Bouteilles de 12 oz. Consommées fraîches, moins d’une semaine après l’achat. Arômes très invitants de houblon américain, s’exprimant principalement dans la gamme des agrumes et des fruits tropicaux. Robe abricot et légèrement trouble (chill haze), petite dentelle blanche et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, le houblon est très expressif, montrant de belles notes d’oranges et de pamplemousses sucrés. Le malt, très légèrement sucré, montre un caractère de biscuits Grahams. Longue amertume en finale. Une excellente IPA de la côte ouest!

Buongiorgio00 (951) - - JAN 20, 2014
La poesia fatta ipa. Ha tutto ciò che ci si aspetta da questo stile, elevato all’eccellenza: intense note fruttate, con sfumature che vanno dalla frutta gialla al leggero agrume, amaro ben bilanciato, che si chiude in una carezza pervasiva e prolungata che abbraccia il palato. Una delle cime himalayane di questo stile che riesce sempre a stupire e in cui i californiani si dimostrano maestri!!

aleigator (945) - GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
Pours a very clear, coppery-amber color, with a decent, stable head. Smells of biscuity malts, with a hoppiness featuring a grassy dankness as well as an orange ripeness. While the hops are beautifully well pronounced on the nose, they blend well into the malts with a note of lemon zest standing out from that mixture. Drinks outstandingly soft, with a well integrated aqueous note, perfectly covered by pungent hops, creating a fantastic refreshment. Begins with bready malts, together with a short appearing coppery note, integrated into the overall taste by sun-bathed, sweet oranges. They introduce an exuberant fruit note to the palate, covered by dry, bitter lemon, pushed by a slightly metallic carbonation. Finishes with luscious lemon rind, leafes, a sparkly burn and a dried orange. Convinces by a world-class balance between sweeter malts and distinct hops, which blend marvelously well together. The hops provide an awesome flavor profile, around which the flavors are successfully build, exhibiting a great depth

ttutony (944) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Nice, bright hoppy nose with assertive citrus and resin notes. Bitterness on the palate is sharp and is backed by a decent malt presence. Really nice IPA.
