Sculpin IPA

By: Ballast Point Brewing

Product Description: It sounds strange to say that an IPA that just won the Gold at the World Beer Cup and is rated nearly perfect across the board is under appreciated. But, I don't think I've ever seen a world-class IPA have to work so hard to get noticed.

Not many blogs have it listed in their top 10. Forums aren't blowing up talking about it. But Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA out of California is as good of an IPA as you'll ever try.

Bronze medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival in 2007, followed by two Gold Medals at the World Beer Cup (2010 and 2014) in the International Pale Ale Category.

And let's not forget that Sculpin is rated 100 on Rate Beer, 98 on Beer Advocate and the brothers at Beer Advocate have given it the perfect 100 / 100 rating as well.

What's on the bottle...

The Sculpin IPA is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. It showcases bright flavors and aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. The lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on its fins that can give a strong sting. Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin fish is considered some of the tastiest. Something that has a sting but tastes great; sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.

More from the brewer

Our Sculpin IPA is a great example of what got us into brewing in the first place. After years of experimenting, we knew hopping an ale at five separate stages would produce something special. The result ended up being this gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

Multiple awards including it's most recent Gold medal at the 2014 World Beer Cup for the International Pale Ale category. Winner of the same award in 2010. Silver Medal in the 2011 California State Fair.

More Awards:
Sculpin IPA has won twice at the Great American Beer Festival - bringing home the Bronze in 2007 and a Silver Medal in 2009.

Four other Gold Medals and two more Bronze round out Sculpin's trophy case.

Warning: Beer of the month clubs and mass producers promise "craft" beer…deliver less-than-stellar drinking experience.

Sadly, it's true…
98% of breweries in America are now labeled as "craft beer" producers, a term that's quickly losing its meaning. But most are still hiding dull, lifeless beer behind clever names and fancy labels.
