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.

Heard rave reviews about this and had to give it a go. Clear, golden pour with a nice, sticky head. Nose is packed with citrus and pine notes. The flavor keeps up where the nose left off, lots of citrus and dry, earthy hops permeating throughout. Cant say Im disappointed from what I have heard about this brew, it is solid through and through.

Nice pour, very foamy, nice aroma as well, lures you in like the song of the siren. Smell floral and citrus. Very murky, surprisingly murky. Taste is a hop bomb, torches the tongue, sweet, floral, and citrus hops, very well hopped IPA, not alot of backbone to it, but as an IPA this is excellent, ranks right up there with the best due to the hop profile and full flavor. Very well done, one of the best IPAs out there. I had this once before and was not that impressed but I think it was old, this is fresh, and it is nice.

Clownoisseur (441) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Pours a honey-orange color, one finger off-white head. Moderate carbonation running up the glass. Aromas of big citrus (grapefruit/orange) with subtle notes of pine, sweet malt and tropical fruitiness. Taste has a great balance of the bitter citrus notes and a light bodied sweetness then moving to some more sweet notes of papaya, kiwi....before harmonizing with a clean, moderate bitterness in the finish. Very well rounded beer.

On tap @ brewery. Clear, honey, small head, no lace. Medium body, light carbonation, and lightly dry. Nothing special about this brew. Citrus and fruit on the aroma as well as honey. Flavor is mostly grapefruit rind, with honey, floral-honey-comb. Kind of typical, but good.

Aroma fake orange, Appearance orange, clear, white foam, Taste light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium bitterness, Palate medium body, Overall to me there is a unnatural orange flavor that is not doing it for me. I am a fan of the grapefruit and pineapple but not this one. I would not suggest this beer to a friend.
