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.

Thanks to toncatcher! A solid IPA but really doesn’t quite warrant its reputation. Great, not excellent.

A West Coast IPA that has a bite and a hop heavy, piny, citrus profile. Recently becoming more easy to find in the Chicago market. Perfect option for a canned IPA.

Beergaard (386) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2015
Really nice and juicy ipa. Aroma of pine, sweet grape, orange, tangerine, peach and some floral notes. Tastewise it is bitter and refreshing with notes of pine, grape, unripe mango and some sweeter fruit. Long aftertaste.

Aroma is citrus floral light caramel malt. Appearance is light orange yellow. Small tan head that dissipates quickly. Taste is grapefruit aroma hops and bitterness forward. Floral aroma hopping as well. Palate is medium and crisp. Overall an excellent IPA. Nothing new here though and overpriced.

Anova167 (384) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - FEB 9, 2012
On draft. Pours crystal clear bright orange with a nice white head. Amazing hoppy aroma. Flavor is strong citrus, mango, and peach. Lighter body than the flavor and aroma let on. Great great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 Pours clear amber with moderate head. Nose is pine, mango, tropical fruit, hops. Taste is pine and peppery spicy hops on the front, on the back end it smooths out a lot with mango and tropical fruit notes. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel for an ipa. For my money the best IPA out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Lots of sweet and fresh grass hops, sweet hop taste, crisp but lingering bitter on palate, and a light amber. Great IPA but it seems everyone already is aware.

It’s already been said but this is a great IPA. Really bright citrus taste with a little metallic hops residue on the finish. Crisp with not a lot of malt. Good stuff.
