Pours a cloudy dark gold with a creamy thin white head. The aroma is bizarre. There's some clear pepper and a not like cheddar cheese. ??? The flavor is dominated, not surprisingly, by explicit habanero burning that even stings you lips. The back of your throat will dry out as if you poured cayenne down your gullet. Interesting but far, far, far from enjoyable.

Tap flight at the brewery. Filtered golden pour with a thick, foamy, white head. Aroma is meaty habanero with earthy hops. Taste is green ancho chile flesh, hops, and faint heat. Apparently earlier batches were much spicier. Not what I was expecting but quite tasty. I don’t recognize the Sculpin as much as I recognize the fresh chile flavors. Good beer

On tap at Hunahpu day ’13. Had this early on, which was a bad idea. Scattered notes: definite kick, burns going down. taste the vegetal ipa up front then all pepper - 6.8 - good but rough to drink. now my stomach hurts and nobody else wants to finish there’s. can’t leave men behind. now my internal organs are falling off... unique, but never again.

Pours a crystal clear, classic golden color with a pure white head. Wet and slick mouthfeel with a burn one would expect from a habanero brew. Plastic and fresh chili pepper flavors get expressed overtly. Fantastically refreshing. Enlivening without being brutal.

On tap at Meridian Pint. Nose is tropical with some mango. Citrus as well. Normal Sculpin. Flavor is mild heat, but not overwhelming. Masks the bitterness.

Hunahpus day. Clear orange pour with a small head. Aroma was big time citrus and pine. No peppers on the nose. Flavors were big and hoppy up front with a biting pepper heat on the finish. It was hot but it came and went in quick fashion. Rather excellent.

Hunahpu Day pour #9. Pours golden copper with a small white head. Smell is mango grapefruit, very similar to regular Sculpin. Havanero spice up front and on the finish. Hides some of the great flavor of the base beer. I just dont get the pepper beers. This is probably the best of them in the pepper beer style, but why ruin such a great beer? Meh.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 On tap at pizza plant. Pours an orangey amber gold with a nice white head. Smell isn?t strong other than the hops and some sweetness. Tastes bitter hops with some syrupy sweetness. The finish heats up and gets spicy! It?s nice and unique.

On tap at Flanny's, copper pour, not much head. Aroma is hop forward with the habanero pretty well hidden. Taste definitely is pronounced with that spicy bite. Good, but another beer that takes awhile to drink.
