Trevlig bärnstensfärg med snygg benvit krona, kryddig doft av habanero & vanlig humlig IPA doft a la Sculpin, förbannat jävla habanero bränna som tar död på varenda smaklök

Fat på Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm.
Klar bärnsten med vitt skum.
Doftar klassisk sculpin men med en kryddigare doft.
Mycket fin i sin grapesötma precis som originalet, men plötsligt börjar det brinna till i halsen.
Mycket konstig känsla, men ändå angenäm.

Bottle from Brewdog online. Misty golden amber with slim white head. Citrus hops, pine, sweet malts in the aroma. Whoa thatís interesting, tastes like a nice high quality IPA then the habanero kicks in at the end. Certainly the best chilli beer Iíve had. I would prefer it without the added heat however.

Green chili, herbs, roasty, caramel, golden, hazy, minimal head, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, chili in the finish. Nice chili taste but more body is needed. Not balanced

Typical appearance, good head. Smells of hops, with a touch of pepper. Tastes strong of habanero.. can feel the heat, which is moderate. Smooth otherwise. This is a great beer.

My hopes for this draft were nil, not liking ipa and all but I must say, thios was probably the surprise of the day. Clear pale yellow with the smell of grapefruit and BO. Yes, first swig is spicy hot and I like it. The heat stays there and is reinforced with every swig. Not quite over the top hot but certainly one of the hotter beers Iíve had. The ipa flavors are overridden by the heat and the bitterness is barely perceivable. Best heat beer Iíve had since church brew mole. Good overall beer experience. A fun thang fer sure. Need to get this in a bottle sixer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Whoa! This one has afterburners! Pours a clear, orange, tiny (if any) head. Smells like a sweet sculpin but with fresh peppers. Initially tastes like a Sculpin, then the habanero heat comes on! Heat is medium but stays with you for a few minutes for each sip. Sculpin & Grapefruit Sculpin are some of the best out there...and this is good for something different. Just donít want to drink the other 5 beers in this 6 pack over the other stuff in my beer fridge. Best shared with a group of spicy hotheads over some chips and cold guacamole.

This beer is no joke. There isnít any subtlety here, the habanero is pervasive and itís hot. Not a bad thing though. I think it helps accentuate the hops and makes them pop a little more. Aroma is what youíd expect from sculpin but with a peppery heat from the habanero. Taste is spicy and bitter. Lots of grapefruit and pine. Dry hot finish that sticks around. This is a really cool take on an excellent ipa. The pepper is big and hot and sticks around. Iím glad the pepper wasnít subtle, it takes makes this beer awesome and different.

This one is a tough rate for me... Sculpin is my favorite beer, so any addition to it is probably gonna bring it down a notch. Having said that, it is easily the best tasting hot pepper beer Iíve ever had, but it takes an incredible beer and makes it not as enjoyable, IMO. The aroma is big juicy hops, and the flavor is... well, bitter hot pepper. It goes nicely with pizza, but I found myself wishing it was just plain old regular Sculpin.

Smells and looks like regular sculpin but that is where the similarities end. The taste is initially hoppy but after about a second the heat takes over and it lingers for a while. I am surprised by how strong the hot, peppery flavor is and can actually feel it on my lips. This is an interesting beer but I wonít be trying it again other than to give it to someone who thinks it is a regular beer to see their reaction.
