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.

This is my favorite IPA. I love Heady Topper, 90 Minute, etc., but this is as good as a beer gets, in my opinion. So great! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The perfect West Coast IPA. As good as it gets. The Citrus Aroma is intoxicating. Smooth to bitter finish Ballast Point does not disappoint and Sculpin exceeds all expectations. Drink Fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastic IPA. Citrus and grapefruit in the nose, great aroma. Taste is more citrus, slight fruity bitterness but not overpowering. Great drinking IPA, probably one of the best I've had.

Uma das melhores IPA's que provei, aroma bem cítrico, puxando mais pro abacaxi, bom amargor, retrogosto lupulado

Beautiful golden amber color capped by a white, frothy, lasting head. Aromas and flavors of pine, citrus, mango, pineapple, kiwi and other tropical fruits. Substantial bitterness, but not the least bit harsh. Medium bodied with some bready malt which supports the tropical fruits perfectly.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: citrusy and resinous. Taste/Palate: starts creamy and sweet, and finishes crisp and bitter. Perfect malt/hop balance. Perfect beer.

Bottle 12 oz...one of my top three...greatest hop aroma of mango grapefruit and pine. Favor is as crisp and clean as you can with fantastic hop flavor and dry clean crystal clear greatness.
