Commercial Description

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.
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. Availability Year-round in 22oz & draft. Bitterness 70 IBUS. Alc. by Vol. 7 %. Serving Temperature 40-45 degrees.

    The beer has an extremely floral nose. It is simply wonderful when it is ice cold; I would've rated it higher if not for the fact that as it gets warmer it grows slightly pungent.

    This is right up there with Pliny the Elder in my opinion. Low malt taste ad high hop flavor. Citrus/fruity and the smell will get you evertime. Almost a perfect West Coast style IPA. If you love IPAs you MUST try Sculpin.
