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.

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

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!

Poured from a bomber with no noticeable date on it. Aroma - tropical, sweet, almost peppery Appearance - crystal clear light golden color Taste - Very nice....very smooth with a great bite at the back of the tongue which I like. Palate - Great lingering taste. Overall - I can see why this beer gets such high ratings, it is a top notch beer. Cant believe I waited so long to have it.

lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2009 Style; glass: IPA; tulip 22 fl oz x 7% ABV = 154 / 60 = 2.56 beers * 150 C = 384 calories (est.) Purchased at: Craft Beer Outlet, Phila, PA for $11.99 Aroma: nice, calming, beach, field, grassy, salty, citrus. Visuals: brand focused packaging, a bright engaged yellow, brilliantly clear, bright white tight bubbled head, sticky lace. Taste: expertly balanced, honey, citrus, rind, peppers. Palate: Bright, crisp, and layered, drying, increasingly bitter long finish. Overall: Fantastic. In my top 3 IPAs, certainly. A favorite. From a firkin. Oh boy. This knocked me over at the Bella Vista Grand reopening in October in Philadelphia. Those 2 oz samples were like little tiny bricks sealing me in to a personal twiddly state. It was amazing, memorable, and significant. After about the third small sample, the world was a blur. Use with caution, and enjoy. If you can get it, suckas.

temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Had this on tap. Really solid IPA. Dry and piney. Decent bitterness. Not much malt, which I like. I could a lot of this brew. As far as IPA goes this one fits the bill for me.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden orange with a finger of fluffy white head. Upfront aroma of mango, grapefruit and caramel biscuitiness. Fuckin barnstormer. Flavours are textbook - loads of tropical hop flavours, mango and citrus backed with a cracking caramel malt backbone, get a bitta that in ya. Nice present but not overbearing bitterness. Brb getting a carton.
