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.

Summer Beer Dabbler 2014. I dont know how I missed this beer for so long. Good, sweet malt. Bitter hops with flowers, citrus, and some pine. Thick palate for the style.

6-pack from Applejack. Golden orange and clear appearance with medium-sized, lingering white head. Citrus, tropical fruits, floral notes and light earthy tones. Crisp, fresh, hoppy and easy to drink. Top notch IPA.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear light copper orange with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet fruity piney hops. Its a bit subdued.

The flavor is sweet bready malts and a little fruit with big piney peppery hops and a dank finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very nice IPA. It reminds me of Odells IPA but is a bit pricier.

courtesy of fiulijn - hazy reddish-orange beer with a poor head retention; solid aroma of oranges and grapefruit; full-bodied, juicy and very tasty; a solid bitterness and quite dry; long and very fruity hoppy finish (tangerines and oranges)- clean and straightforward

650ml bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours golden with a thick white head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is subtle with hints of lemon citrus, apricot and perhaps a touch of mango. Body is quite light with a medium to low carbonation. Taste is lovely with lots of citrus characters with a subtle dry bitter finish. Such an approachable IPA. Smooth and crisp and just Awesome !

I was excited to find this one. Had to head up north about 3 hours; they don't sell ballast point where I live. Great clean aroma of earthy pine/citrus hops and a good amount of malt. Surprisingly fizzy, light golden color with a small, active white head. Tastes outstanding. Hoppy enough for true ipa fans but drinkable enough for novices to the style. Citrus hops mesh wonderfully with a malt backbone that components the hops without overwhelming them with sweetness. Overall very well crafted and well balanced IPA. A must have for all fans of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sem dúvida uma das melhores IPAs que já bebi. Excelente sabor com um frutado bem presente que equilibra muito bom com seu amargor. Uma bela cerveja!
