Sculpin IPA light for the style but popular among hopheads
Best known for surfing and sunshine, San Diego has the reputation as being the India pale ale capital of the USA. Ballast Point Brewing Co. certainly reinforces that theory by offering a wide array of hop-centric ales.
Starting as a tiny brewery in the back of a homebrew supply shop, Ballast Point has grown steadily since its meager beginnings. Its most popular offering among hopheads is the Sculpin IPA, which won a gold medal at the 2010 World Beer Cup.
