The Sculpin 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.

This delicious Ballast Point Ale won a gold medal at the World Beer Cup 2010 in the International Pale Ale 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 tastiest. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.

A great west coast IPA with spice, citrus, and a mellow malt base.

Sculpin IPA

One of the things I absolutely love about this IPA are the mango and lemons tones to it. Very complex, very good.

Cheers!

oh hoppy day

I loved this IPA....A super drinkable brew that invites you to drink another....The thirst quenching citrus notes keep this craft beer on the top of most "go-to" lists....
