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.

NYC Trip Beer #8. Nothing like following your very first AleSmith IPA with your first Sculpin. Between the two, I far preferred the Sculpin. Pours a pale orange with a lovely white head head. Beautiful Citrus scents and flavor. Well carbonated with a crisp hop finish. Bought some to bring back to the A. Bottle - Guilty Goose - New York, NY

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Golden orange in color. Tons of citrus and hops on the nose. Great balance between sweet fruit flavors - apricot, lemon - and hoppy bitterness. Fizzy feel on the tongue. You cannot do better for a wide release DIPA.

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.

CacheManyHose (690) - HONG KONG - JUL 20, 2014
From San Diego. Bright translucent orange-copper with small watery white head. Lots of fruit in the smell - mango, pineapple, citrus. Tastes of fruity bitter hop and malt with a long slightly spicy finish. More malt and less hop than I expected. Body is crisp but juicy. Not very big and quite malty for an IPA but still very tasty.

thomas15 (689) - Alabama, USA - APR 25, 2013
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.
