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.

VinegarStroke (407) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle (22 ounce): Clear, golden with a hint of copper and a thick head. Huge lift of fresh hops. Lantana, citrus, pine. Very fresh. Green but rich.. Dry to off dry. Medium to medium high bitterness. Not sour. Rich, very fresh. Great weight and length. Bitterness is balanced by flavor. Tropical, citrus, pine hop flavors with malt to match. Intense west coast IPA but as balanced as they come. Intense but lovely beer.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2014
This beer pours out a pale orange with a white head and lots of bubbles. Aromas of weed, grapefruit, and alcohol. I like the flavor a lot more, waves of every kinds of citrus fruit I can think of. Some sweet and slightly bready malt lies underneath. There is a lingering orange zest and bitter aftertaste. Delicious and refreshing, it showcases what you can do with hop aromatics and flavors over hop bitterness.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 11.03.14. A: Orange. Maybe honey malt. It smells sweet, but its not a very strong smelling IPA. A: 1/2 finger head with a moderate pour. Hazy pale orange body. T: Orange, tropical fruit, and honey malt dominate. Pine, lemon, and biscuity malt are subtle. P: Crisp with bubbles on the back end. O: This is in the San Diego style, obviously, but its a well-balanced IPA. It has a subtle piney bite on the back end. Overall, its not very strong, but it might make a good entry IPA. Stone IPA is similar but seems to have a stronger kick to it as its more hop forward.

Flaska bishops marina med päronen - doftar otroligt friskt. Mörkgul med vitt skum och lätt dimmig. Tydlig men behaglig beska. Smakar lite blodapelsin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swesson (402) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2014
From a can. Pours a light amber-orange and makes a nice white head. Smells of toffee and light caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, citrus, and hops. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a finger-thick white head. Aroma is strong fruit - mango and apricot. Medium body, taste leans more to the hops but isnt overpowering, balanced well. Finish is a little dry with more of the fruit character coming through. Well done!
