3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has heavy notes of pine and citrus, and hints of apple. Pours a clear dark amber with a thin white head. The hop notes come in first, and are quickly swept away by the sweet habanero heat. The tropical fruit notes from the hops blend nicely with the same notes from the pepper. The sweetness and heat linger on the palate for quite some time. If you like spicy foods, and you like IPA’s, I would recommend giving this one a try.

So I tried it once..probably will never drink this one again..habanero and beer go better seperate. Not in the same brew..upon further not the alcohol buzz combined with the aromatics and pepper burn makes this a must try...but I think its a one and done..but very surprising beer

Tap. The look is clear, golden bright colored, with a thin head. The smell is peppers, veggie, light, muted, and ok. The taste is pepper, chiles, spiced, definitely some heat at the back of the mouth. Interesting.

Keg at GBBF of all places. Holy cow, CAMRA has come a long way. This one had all the tastiness of the original, but a bit too much heat for my taste.

Sculpin is such a fruit heavy IPA (for me tropical, grapefruit and peach) and habanero are such a fruity pepper (mango and other tropical stuff) these two pair well together. Also it’s a habanero. It could be much hotter but there is sense of danger as liquid capiscum coats your throat and mouth. Not a quencher this one. Hats off for the crazy guys that bottled and distributed this to Whole Foods.

Draft. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Smells like vegetable and light pepper. Tastes like spicy pepper, vegetable, pale malt... And a lot of spice. Light body and low carbonation.

Holy crap -- talk about truth in advertising! I love habanero, but this is that times a billion. I’m giving it the rating in question because it lives up to the label, but this is a hard beer to drink!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Jess. Pours a golden color with thick white head. Aroma is pretty mild, not really much here, pepper or hoppy goodness. Taste is light, dry, then the pepper hits. Pretty darn spicy. Missing much of the great ipa base, but interesting take on the IPA, which lives up to the name.

On tap at least the brewery. Clear yellow/orange pour with an off white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Grapefruit hop notes upfront give way too some serious heat from the habaneros. Wowzers. Good body and mouthfeel.
