A new variant of Ballast Point Brewing Co.’s popular Sculpin IPA will be released in October.

Spruce Tip Sculpin IPA is a 7 percent “Hazy” IPA that is brewed with spruce tips and packaged in 12-ounce bottles.

As the name implies, the new IPA will use the San Diego-based brewery’s Sculpin IPA (7 percent ABV) that was first released in 2006 as its base. There have been a number of packaged Sculpin variants released over the years, including Aloha Sculpin (7 percent ABV), Habanero Sculpin (7 percent ABV) and Unfiltered Sculpin (7 percent ABV.)

In an email, Hilary Cocalis, Vice President of marketing for Ballest Point, told Tenemu that Spruce Tip Sculpin IPA will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles that are scheduled to be shipped to retailers nationwide in October.
