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.

Light with a big head. Fruity bouquet and sweet as from tropical fruit, emphasized with heaps of hops. A bit too strong carbonation, would gain on softer approach considering its fruity frame.

Clear, orange colour with big, stable head. Nice lacing too. After opening the bottle, it feels big punch of citrus (grapefruit!), exotic fruits (mango, maybe even passion fruit), some floral note and malty base on background. Taste is light to medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light dry. Finish is very long, biiter, but not harsh or tart. Soft carbonation. Medium to full body. Fantastic, very drinkable, no doubt one of the best IPA I’ve ever tried.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Bra stämning och härlig hype på GH. Nördarna är samlade då fatet knäcks efter en del försenade leveranser. 3 månader gammalt fat så det får man ju vara nöjd med. Har en ganska hög beska, även i doften på något vis. Når inte upp till alesmiths nivåer men nog är det världsklass allt. Bra jobbat Hoffback. Edit: Flarra på GH. Bättre än fatet vill jag minnas och nu parallellt med en stone ipa. Snyting med tropiska frukter i doften och smaken är inte sämre. Tveklöst en ipa i världsklass Blindprovad: Känns väldigt amerikansk. Fruktig, balanserad, krämig. Ren och med lagom beska

Yellow-gold pour with a loose white head. Very catty with lotes of ammonia like presence, some floral pine, honey and a faintly minty, very bitter finsih. Medium-thinnish body with moderate carbonation.

(12 Oz. Btl) - Pours a nice wedding gown white frothy head. Strong aroma of pine resin. Body is a dark apricot color. Flavors of sour orange and apricot. Bitterness lingers on the palate. Nicely done. But, it’s definately a sipping beer!

A lovely big hoppy IPA from Ballast Point. Ticks all the boxes and is very palatable.

Zapach ziołowo-żywiczny. W smaku też ziołowo-żywicznie. Goryczka bardzo fajne zaznaczona, a zupełnie niezalegająca. Fajne.

Doesn’t even register when it hits the front of your tongue but blasts the back of your tongue and throat. Buttery, hoppy finish. Pretty good.

Awesome draft at the tipsy crow, San Diego and further, this orange nectar was my ruin in San Diego! With it’s lovely citrus notes and full on tropical harmony together with a good strong hop kick! Lovely beer!

Hazy yellow orange pour with a clean hop citrus pine aroma. Sweet and light mixed with a pine spice and some grapefruit towards the end. Leaves a bitterness as it goes down.
