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.

JAXSON (591) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear medium gold with a fluffy lil head. Nose is dank pine forest, and something reminiscent of juniper berries. Flavor is a gloriuos expression of west coast hops. Citrus rind and pine forest. Maybe a bit on the bold side for a single IPA, but a really good one at that.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2010
wow. 650ml bottle poured hazy gold with rocky sticky yellowish head. Aroma is bright and very flural with sweet mago and grapefruit notes up front other citrus fruit notes in the mix also like oranges and peaches. Taste is hoppy and piney notes but still holds a citrus fruit taste with a very good body. Extreamly complex and the aroma is very strong. phenominal IPA

One of the best IPAs. This is packed with hops. Tastes of pine and grapefruit. Very thirst quenching. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OminouSC2 (590) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
One of the best "standard" IPAs out there. The clear amber color makes it really nice to look at. The aromas is well balanced between ctirus hops, malt and fruit. The finish is long without becoming bitter.

ChiGuy68 (589) - Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Tasted from a 12oz can. It poured a clear amber hue that was quite effervescent, with a frothy head that left streaky lacing. A pleasing hoped orange nose with kicking hops on the taste buds. Thanks to the dude who recommended this to me while pondering my beer purchase. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minihame2 (589) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Clear copper colour and a small white head. Aroma is dominated by hops with faint citrus in the background. Taste is incredibly soft, only slight bitterness after you have swallowed a couple of times. Rich body, super soft mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Great IPA!

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2015
On draft at Marriott Marquis Washington bar, DC. Appearance is a hazy bright orange with small white head. Aroma is peach, grapefruit, yeast. Taste is grapefruit and pine early, sweet fruits after that. Palate is medium. Overall, pretty powerhouse IPA, but not surprising considering its 100/100 rating.

Hoprider (587) - DENMARK - APR 14, 2015
Near clear straw colour pour. Small lasting light beige head. Sadly it is clear right away that this is an old bottle.. I can see that this was great once but it has become a malty Sculpin Im afraid... I get some fruity hops on the nose but a pretty malty base on the palate. Potentially a much higher rating but have to settle for 3.8 now. Ill be back. I hope.

This is a very smooth IPA. Not overpowering pine hops nor bitter. Mild hops after about 5 seconds with a slow fade. This is excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

budznsudz (582) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Pours copper with a pillowy cream colored head with some nice patches of lacing. Smell is light citrus and a touch of sweetness. The taste is balanced if not a bit mild. Pine, grapefruit, bready malt, and just a touch of skittles. I usually like my ipas more hop dominant, but this is a pretty solid offering. Well balanced, tasty, and refreshing.
