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.

Bomber thanks to GorditoABD! Thanks Chris! Pours a beautiful golden honey color, with a solid two finger head. Smells like Hops on top of hops. Pure pine resin and grapefruit rind. Taste is almost chewy its so wonderful of grapefruit. Finish is bitter and citrusy..Good stuff. If California falls off into the ocean, perhaps we can at least save San Diego.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2014
small can into an spig IPA glass. Pours clear golden sunset with a creamy white head. Nice aroma of orange, mandarin, apricot fruits. Very bitter and resinous in the flavour with the apricot flavour dominating, slight sweet caramel maltyness.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Light golden with a lighter head but lasting ring on glass. Extremely potent floral pined hops present a marvelous bouquet to inhale. The Sturdy hop character is sublimely countered by a slightly burned and sugared backbone and fruited green apple slightly sparklingly sour echo, which gradually yeilds a lingering and lasting bittering dusty twinge tract down the center of the mouth. An outstanding brew, with an incredible aroma and impressive depth and character.

Aroma is tropical citrus, mango and peach. It appears to be golden with ample white head that leaves distinct lacing. Very smooth taste of vivid citrus. Back end bitterness, exceptionally drinkable. Bight and balanced on palate. Pretty amazing ipa.

tillmac62 (689) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Clear golden pour, with just a touch of amber, coupled with a very nice head and long lasting lacing. The nose is a complex blend of grapefruit, mango and other sweet tropicals against a subtle spruce. Light medium body with a smooth texture. The carbonation level is a touch above normal. The outstanding flavor profile is expertly complex and follows the nose. Grapefruit leads then flows into the sweeter hop flavors. In the middle the biscuit malt comes through against a subtle spruce flavor. The finish effervesces into a grapefruit bitter tartness over a caramel sweetness. This is an outstanding complex hop flavor bomb.

Bawelt (687) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 29, 2016
Trop vieille. Mais potentiellement bonne. Nez franchement caramel (signe de non fracheur) et fond orang. Bouche du mme acabit avec un petit ct un peu floral et rsineux.
