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.

Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Draft sample at 2013 Cincinnati Brew Ha Ha festival. Cloudy golden hue, strong hoppy/fruity nose, pleasing bittersweet taste with a lot of different fruit notes.

SamTheBarrel (804) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 355ml bottle, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours cloudy amber with a medium sized off-white head that leaves a fine lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, apricots, orange peels and a hint of lemon. Taste is similar to the aroma. Bitter and slightly sweet with a medium body and carbonation. A great fresh and juicy IPA.

On tap at Ray's. Clear dark golden, soft white head. Nose is bubblegum, mango fruity hop nose. Soft and smooth on the palate and really well balanced from sweet to bitter. Resinous hops with just enough malt sweetness. Big fan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bomber. Appearance is a light golden bronze color with a cap of off-white foam and bubbles. Lots of pine resin, tropical fruit, grapefruit and lemon in the aroma. The taste starts with a potent dose of tangerine, pineapple and grapefruit rind along with some pine, hops resin and toasted malt toward the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a clean, bitter citrus finish. Overall, a fantastic West Coast style IPA with just enough balance and complexity.

Bottle poured into a Sam Adams pint glass produced a finger worth of white head that laced out wonderfully. The body of the brew was a clear copper in color I got huge aromas of citrus fruits and flowery grasses coming off the nose of this one. It was really a pleasant aroma not harsh like some IPA’s it did add a lot to the experience. The flavor defiantly was a west coast take on a IPA very hop forward. There is also enough sweetness form the malts to keep this brew from being one of those one dimensional brews. It had a light to medium feel to it with good carbonation. I enjoyed the bomber and would love to have another glass. It was worth the wait and I will continue to look for a fresh bottle in Mass if I can come across one. I have been looking for two years now with no luck, they just don’t stick around. Now I know why.

Pours a clear golden with a good sized head. Very nice aroma of citrus hops, some caramel as well. Light sweetness, slightly strong bitterness, clean finish.

3.8
Frothmeister (797) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and the colour of honey, with an off-white head. On the nose resinous notes, fresh pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit, faint lime peel, and a very faint whiff of lemon jelly beans as it warms up. Taste wise, fruit at the top of the profile. Passion fruit, grapefruit, peach, and light resinous notes that head into mineral heavy bitterness, and lots of bitter citrus pith in the finish.

3.6
Patrik (796) - Amarillo City, - AUG 17, 2013
Mycket svag doft. Ren torr IPA med viss metall i smaken..Lagom humlad. . Saknar dock frukt å fyllighet för att bli en perfekt IPA. Svenska bryggare hämta inspiration här.
