3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is citrus and spice. Flavor is overwhelming with spiciness a little over the top and takes away from hops. Not my cup of tea.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at DoG Street Pub. Lovely aroma of fresh fruits and sweet malt. Light caramel in the background as well. Taste is fruity for a few moments and slightly sweet then goes directly to peppery Habanero heat. It kind of dominates at this point. Not much else going on. Body is medium with a moderate bubbly carbonation and LOTS of lingering heat from the peppers. Ends with more peppery spices with touches of caramel, malt and fresh fruit notes. Habanero is a touch one-sided on the palate.

From memory. On draft. After a few swirls and a few sips, it was very clear this was a hot pepper infused beer. Can't say I got much more then simply spicy peppers on the nose and palate. Spicy capsicum heat lingers on the palate for minutes. Best enjoyed with food.. Chips, tacos, burritos, etc.. Glad I got to experience this.. I would only order this again with the above mention foods. Worth trying.

Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Orange hued golden, thin to moderate foamy white head, decent lacing.   Noticeable heat on the nose.   Soft hop otherwise.   I am a bit concerned given the heat coming off of this one.   On the tongue its like being hit by a truck.   Very strong Habanero, too strong if you ask me.   Overshadows everything else in this beer.   Too hot, too spicy, and too much.   Seems like they ruined already fantastic Sculpin.   Damnit!

Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is of pine needles, resin, citrus, and crackers. The habanero comes through in the flavor - caramel, citrus, spice, peppers, bitterness. The heat lingers, but isn’t too strong while tasting.

On tap, golden pour, white foam, pretty soft and plain until the heat kicks in, not as hot as ghost but has a bite, hot lasting finish

Great brew...sculpin alone is fantastic...add the extra dimension of the habanero is superb. Great pepper and hop aroma flavor through and through. Excellent

My question: Just how much habanero is in this beer? The answer: enough to make a spicy food fan like myself happy to have some water nearby. The spice and the hops marry almost as good as peanut butter and jelly. But the nose: absolutely awesome. It truly smells of habanero pepper. Probably the spiciest beer I've had, but also a damn good and thoughtfully made IPA.

14 oz pour at bier thirty. Poured liked a typical ipa with a thin white head. My nose can’t smell much but that might be my fault. First sip and the habanero explodes in your mouth. Salty and hot. I’m good for one glass and no more.

On tap at bier thirty. Hops is not really prevalent. The habanero is though. I can not find a hot food that beats me so I like this beer. Nose is of habanero and warms the mouth. But for the weak be careful.
